Three Innovative Portfolio Companies Leveraging Blockchain Technology

September 3, 2021 | Scott Murphy

Alumni Ventures’ Blockchain Fund is focused on the universe of opportunities opened up by blockchain technology. It’s a chance to invest in a diversified portfolio of ~20-30 venture investments that use blockchain technology to change how business is conducted. As we continue to evolve to a mobile and digital-first society, we believe blockchain will become critical for the coordination of resources and activities providing ways to record, store, share information about, and exchange assets. See below for case studies on three Alumni Ventures portfolio companies developing unique blockchain applications. Investors in this year’s Blockchain Fund will own two of these companies (BlockFi and Mythical) as part of their portfolio.


Alumni Ventures’ Blockchain Fund will focus on new sectors and ventures using blockchain tech. We will provide investors in the fund with a portfolio of ~20-30 promising, venture-backed companies innovating in areas like decentralized finance (DeFi), the Metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and more. This is an actively managed fund led by a three-person investing team, all with deep VC and blockchain experience.
