China Home to Eight of Top 50 Blockchain VCs

Rohnert Park, CA, June 29, 2018 – Analysis by Crypto Fund Research of the top venture capital investors in blockchain companies reveals China’s large role in shaping the future of the industry.

Led by Beijing, 16% of the top 50 most influential blockchain VCs are based in China. This includes two of the top 50 which are based in Hong Kong .

Node Capital and Ceyuan Ventures, both based in Beijing ranked in the top 10. Node Capital has made almost two dozen blockchain investments, mostly in ICOs. Ceyuan Ventures makes more typical venture investments in companies like Mars Finance, Basis, and Trip.io.

Overall, China had more VCs among the top 50 than any country other than the United States. Binance, which earlier this month announced a $1 billion investment fund for blockchain and crypto startups did not make the list this time, but will almost certainly be on the list in the near future.

“Despite a ban on cryptocurrency exchanges, China is extremely invested in developing a leading blockchain infrastructure” Josh Gnaizda, founder of Crypto Fund Research, said, “The Hangzhou Blockchain Industrial Park is just one example of this commitment.”
