Polychain Capital venture has a proven track record

The earlier venture fund by Polychain Capital was dubbed successful as it was able to raise around one hundred and seventy-five million dollars ($175M). The investors were wealthy individuals with an average investment of five million dollars. Most of the fund’s capital was invested in high-quality startups after it was launched in early 2018. Forty percent of the fund’s capital was spent on the startups that were based on current blockchain technology.
