who we are

We are crypto engineers and builders who have been exploring crypto since 2012 when we successfully built Colored Coins – the world’s first digital assets protocol on top of Bitcoin.  

Node is a thesis-focused, long-term cryptocurrency fund investing in pre-market/market token-based projects. As well as providing capital, we take the role of core contributers in new protocols and networks. We support our portfolio in a hands-on approach as a leading node provider, helping teams bootstrap the network in the early days. We also like solving token-economic challenges and providing liquidity when it is most needed.  We add technical value to support our entrepreneurs and networks as they go to market and continue to grow.


Public confidence in slow-moving, high-cost organizations is eroding, due to their lack of transparency, inability to course-correct and weak security protocols.
Blockchains, cryptocurrencies and their underlying technologies have the potential to increase trust and improve security across many markets and cut costs and friction.  They enable a dynamic new range of applications and business models, which enjoy a decentralized structure based on trust in code and math – ensuring better alignment of incentives between all market participants.

We are now at the early stages of their adoption curve.  As they mature, these technologies will solve some of the world's biggest challenges in finance, media, ownership and data access. 
At Node, we believe the market will grow rapidly as these technologies fulfill their promise.  

Our team adds significant technical expertise on bootstrapping new networks. Our goal is to invest in novel networks – addressing vertical-specific issues, which are ideally blockchain agnostic – and to solve distinct issues in defined ecosystems.
