CoinFund, a New York-based web3 investment firm, is looking to raise $250 million to invest in seed-stage startups just three months after announcing its previous fund. CoinDesk first reported the news.
The company's Cayman Islands-domiciled funds are looking to raise $130 million and $20 million, while its Delaware-incorporated vehicle is seeking $100 million, according to three separate filings on Monday. The documents indicate that the sales have yet to occur, meaning that the funds are at a very early stage.
CoinFund did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Block.
The firm announced a $300 million fund in August backed by institutional investors including the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, Adams Street Partners and StepStone Group.
Previously, CoinFund has backed the Layer 1 blockchain Solana, web3 indexing protocol The Graph and blockchain infrastructure company Blockdaemon, among other startups. More recently, it's participated in developer platform Hyperlane's $18.5 million round and crypto investment app Solvo's $3.5 million round.
