Venture Capital Makes a Record $17 Billion Bet on Crypto World

  • VC funds already eclipsed annual amount for crypto investments
  • $10 billion Bullish Global raise largest in industry history

For a sense of just how big everything crypto has become, you can, of course, just take a look at coin and token prices. And then you can check again five minutes later to see if the space’s notorious volatility has markedly changed the first observation.

But for a more stable measure of the industry’s growth, consider this: venture capital funds have already poured $17 billion this year into companies that operate in the space, according to data provider PitchBook. That’s by far the most in any single year and nearly equal to the total amount raised in all previous years combined.
