Investing in blockchain technology that enables economic democracy.
Chain Ridge Capital is an early-stage venture capital firm focused on investing in blockchain technology that shifts the paradigm from centralization to decentralization. We invest in companies and protocols using the blockchain to remove the single points of failure big institutions have created and instead focus on trustless networks that rely on the power of properly aligned economic incentives. Democracy shouldn’t be limited to governments and Chain Ridge Capital is focused on partnering with founders ready to take on the challenge of democratizing the world’s financial access.
Blockchain technology has created a new world of decentralized applications that take user data held in silos by institutions and delegate control of that data back to the people. We face a critical nexus of data control and access and believe decentralization must take form at scale to prevent the continuation of this to the point of no return.
Equitization for centralized institutions relies on that institution’s ability to generate revenue and profits at the expense of its customers. This greatly benefits institutions but provides little to no economic upside for the customers that elevated them. Financial decentralization aligns economic incentives so as the value of a network grows, so does a participating customer’s financial upside.
Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned this with digital currency when he created Bitcoin and we believe it is our duty to carry the torch and expand his vision to financial access. Chain Ridge Capital believes now is the time to source, partner, and grow with intrepid founders as they change the world.
