Union Square Ventures said it will invest roughly 30% of its freshly minted $250 million 2021 Core Fund in crypto-related investments as it has with other recent funds.

  • The venture capital firm, known for bets on Twitter, Tumblr and Coinbase, said in a blog post written by Managing Partner Andy Weissman that planned crypto-related investments “will include holding tokens directly as well as equity in early-stage blockchain-related projects.”

  • “We believe the opportunity to decentralize systems is still in early stages, seeing adoption tailwinds and with a lot of interesting new activity,” Weissman wrote.

  • USV said it’s also interested in ventures that are finding new ways to broaden access to learning and healthcare.
