"We will not ask you to present in front of an investment committee," the announcement says.
The venture will focus on gaming, social, software, fintech, and healthcare. The $2 billion fund will also "occasionally" invest in startups outside of the cryptocurrency market.
Earlier iHodl reported that ex-Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, launched a non-profit foundation aimed at protecting Bitcoin developers from legal harassment. The fund's first case will be the case of law firm ONTIER LLP, which has filed a lawsuit against Bitcoin developer Craig Wright on behalf of Tulip Trading Limited.
The foundation will initially be supported by volunteers and lawyers, and the foundation's board will be responsible for allocating resources. In addition to Dorsey, the board includes Chaincode Labs Co-Founder, Alex Morcos, and scientist Martin White.
