The raise would represent a slight increase when compared to "prior efforts," the report said. The firm "plans to raise new growth, crypto and bio vehicles in 2025," according to Axios.
Andreessen Horowitz will ask "limited partners to invest via a new master vehicle that would feed into sub-funds (including some of its sector-specific vehicles)," the report also said. The firm declined to comment.
Through its a16z crypto arm, Andreessen Horowitz has been one of the blockchain space's most prolific investors, with involvement in high-profile companies and projects like Coinbase, Mythical Games and MakerDAO.
VC flow into crypto down

VC firm Blockchain Capital — which like Andreessen Horowitz based in northern California — recently announced it had raised $580 million for two new crypto investment funds.
