Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) has just launched a new site called Future. It is a site for “understanding the future, how tech shapes it, and how we build it.” I just subscribed to it and, if you’d like to do the same, click here. At the same time, the company also just announced their latest crypto fund (a $2.2 billion fund). Here’s an excerpt from the release:
We believe that the next wave of computing innovation will be driven by crypto. We are radically optimistic about crypto’s potential to restore trust and enable new kinds of governance where communities collectively make important decisions about how networks evolve, what behaviors are permitted, and how economic benefits are distributed.
I’ve been reading a lot more about crypto over the last few months (which is something that I mentioned I was doing here.) I am not in this world day-to-day, but I am now fully convinced that we are in the very early innings of a profound shift. So pretty soon this is going to become my day-to-day, whether I like it or not.
