Looking For Funding? Here Is The Most Complete List Of Asian VC Funds Investing In Blockchain

Asia has become the absolute dominant force in the blockchain universe, with countries in the region accounting for the biggest portion of Bitcoin mining machine manufacturing, mining pools, crypto trading and new token issuance.

For any blockchain projects or investors, Asia is the place that can’t be ignored when planning an initial coin offering or seeking VC investors. One recent initial coin offering, launched by a team based outside of China, pulled in tens of millions of U.S. dollars and, unsurprisingly over 60% of that capital came from investors in Asia. As the source of the most up-to-date information and data on the blockchain space in Asia, China Money Network has compiled the most complete list of venture capital investors in Asia investing in blockchain projects for the benefit of blockchain projects globally.
