Esteemed venture capitalist Marc Andreessen, alongside Accolade Partners and Galaxy Digital, have embarked on a collaborative venture with 1kx with a new $75 million fund.

This collaboration comes as the crypto market witnesses a recovery following a two-year protracted downturn.

1kx’s New $75 Million Crypto Fund

The infusion of fresh capital by influential investors such as Chris Dixon, a partner at Andreessen Horowitz, into 1kx’s latest fund highlights a growing confidence in crypto. According to Lasse Clausen, a founding partner of 1kx, Accolade Partners plays a pivotal role as the anchor investor in this new initiative.

Clausen’s insights reveal an industry on the cusp of rejuvenation, bolstered by the recent surge in the crypto market capitalization, propelled forward by the introduction of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the US and the anticipation of lower interest rates.

However, Clausen notes a lag in venture capital engagement with the crypto market, suggesting a cautious approach from investors. Despite the slow spill-over of broad price gains into venture capital funding, Clausen sees an opportunity in the current market conditions for early-stage investment rounds.

“The VC investment market of crypto always lags [token] prices. A lot of VCs aren’t back yet, and the valuations are still very reasonable and lowered, especially for these early-stage rounds,” Clausen said.
