Pantera Capital - About

Pantera Capital was the first cryptocurrency fund and institutional asset manager focused exclusively on blockchain technology in the US. 

Pantera Capital made its first investments when Bitcoin was at $65 /BTC in early 2013, and since then, the fund stays at the top of the most influential and high-rated funds in the industry. Pantera Capital was established by an ex-Tiger Management’s Head of Macro Trading and CFO – Dan Morehead, so a deep knowledge of the industry and a top-notch expertise is embedded in the fund's DNA from the outset.

The most recognizable investment “targets” were such projects as 0x, Alchemy, Acala, Anchor, Arbitrum, Aurora, BitDao, Coinbase, Cosmos, Karura, Kusama, Polkadot, Ripple, and 120+ other prominent startups in the industry.

As an interesting fact, the Pantera fund was at the beginning of the Ethereum launch and created the first ICO on the netwrok with the Augur launch in 2015. 

Any crypto investor who is planning an investment activity should always keep a close eye on the fund's activities.
