Description

Alongside is bringing passive, long term investing to crypto assets. We believe index funds are the greatest equalizer of a financial product ever. Anyone that averaged into an S&P 500 index beat 90% of hedge fund managers over a 20-year time horizon. We think the same dynamic will play out in crypto assets.

In a past life, we worked on Ethereum at ConsenSys, partnerships at Google, and biotech ventures at Longevity Fund.

We're proudly backed by investors including Coinbase, Village Global, Not Boring Capital, and FJ Labs.
