The most active cryptocurrency funds in 2019:

In the cryptocurrency industry in 2019, a total of 269 venture capital investments have dropped to $ 1.5 billion, a decrease of about 40% year-on-year, and the number of transactions has also decreased by 60%. (The statistic does not include seed rounds and other round investments below $ 1 million). With Pitchbook, we analyzed the investment situation of the most active funds (seed rounds, early stages, and later stages) in 2019 to determine whether there are more funds in a particular field than in other fields.

The top ten active funds and their investments in 2019 are as follows:

Interestingly, all funds other than Galaxy Digital are either keen on investing in regional exchanges (South America, Europe, Middle East) or investment transaction related services. This direction has become the first choice for active investment institutions in 2019. Outside of exchange or transaction-related services, wallets, open financing platforms, and blockchain game studios are popular investment categories that follow closely behind.
