The blockchain technology space proceeds in cycles. Today, in July of 2022, we are in a downturn but with more reasons than ever to be excited about the future. July 1st marks seven years since CoinFund was founded at my kitchen table in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in the 2015 Bitcoin bear market. Indeed, as a firm we spent four and a half of the last seven years navigating bear market conditions. Now, as we begin our eighth year as a firm, it’s worth reflecting on just how far the industry — and CoinFund — have come in that time.
