A new Hong Kong-based fund is reportedly raising money to support early-stage and developing ventures in the digital asset space.
Bloomberg reports that the ProDigital Future Fund has already secured at least $30 million in funding commitments and aims to raise a total of $100 million by the end of the year to invest in startups.
The fund is particularly interested in tech companies with connections to China that are establishing their presence in Web3. To date, ProDigital Future Fund already funded six crypto-related projects, which include Hong Kong-based metaverse firm GigaSpace and Australia-based digital sports league operator One Future Football.
The report comes as Hong Kong pushes to become a major digital asset hub in the region. In February, the city’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) published a consultation paper on proposed licensing requirements for virtual asset trading companies.
The regulator is also soliciting the public’s view on whether retail investors should be allowed to access digital asset trading platforms, which could legitimize the trading of crypto assets.
Amid concerns that Hong Kong may change its stance on crypto, ProDigital Future Fund backer and tech investor Curt Shi says he is optimistic that the city will continue to have a degree of openness and flexibility.
“I understand the concerns, but nothing is perfect given the complexity of the crypto economy and current geopolitical situation. Our strategy is to continue to see how things go.”
