CityBlock Capital is a venture capital firm connecting traditional venture capital with Blockchain technology. The company recently launched its first tokenized venture fund – the “NYCQ fund,” which exclusively makes investments in early-stage Blockchain infrastructure companies which CityBlock believes will replace the technology platforms behind capital markets. All NYCQ investments are either equity or digital equity; the fund will not invest in protocols or cryptocurrency. The NYCQ’s investment team is headed by industy veterans Nikhil Kalghatgi and Ateet Ahluwalia, who boast decades of experience in investments and asset management. The two men also respectively serve as Partner and Managing Director of CoVenture Crypto, a multi-strategy cryptocurrency asset management firm backed by Softbank. The firm is helping build key components of tokenized finance including a cryptocurrency index fund designed to make it easy for more traditional investors to gain exposure to top digital assets.
