Crypto.com is launching a $200 million fund dedicated to investing in crypto startups, CoinDesk can exclusively reveal.

  • To lead the effort, the Hong Kong-headquartered cryptocurrency exchange announced the launch of a new venture arm, Crypto.com Capital, on Thursday.

  • The firm has earmarked $200 million for the venture arm to invest in crypto startups and projects at seed and Series A stages.

  • Crypto.com Capital will lead funding rounds with investments of between $100,000 and $3 million at seed stage and between $3 million and $10 million at Series A.

  • According to Bobby Bao, Crypto.com co-founder and the new arm’s chief, startups will rely on Crypto.com Capital to “move fast and provide both capital and access to a global user base.”

  • Crypto exchanges having venture arms is far from unusual. Coinbase, Binance and Blockchain.com have all had investment wings for years.
