Blockchain Global was founded in 2014 through the merger of:
- Bitcoin Group founded by Ryan Xu, a SHA256 and SCRYPT hashing company based in Shanghai, China; and
- Bitcoins Reserve founded by Allan Guo, a digital asset OTC trading desk based in Melbourne, Australia
The company had 9 people led by Sam Lee, a former frontend web developer and early bitcoin enthusiast. The founders started the company to champion the democratisation of access to capital, where in a more transparent and trusted blockchain enabled future the risk premium in funding startups is reduced as blockchain would level the playing field by removing frictions to enable the issue of tokens representing value to attract an audience of supporters. Five years on, we are a firm of around 60 venture partners and employees with sourcing and investing in deals from 23 offices worldwide. With active management of 400m worth of investments, our portfolio companies employ more than 2,000 people across the globe.
