Pantera Select Fund
A week ago, Pantera Capital announced the formation of a new $200 million fund called the Pantera Select Fund. The new fund will focus on investments in decentralized finance, Web3 gaming, and nonfungible token platforms. It will also invest in crypto-finance firm Amber and an unspecified Indian crypto exchange.
One of the first investment firms to focus exclusively on cryptocurrencies, Pantera Capital has a lot of experience in this space. Last year, the firm launched its first fund, the Pantera Capital, which was designed to raise more than $600 million in capital. This month, the firm announced it had more than met its fundraising target. Now, it’s planning to close the fund with more than $1.3 billion in committed capital.
