To acknowledge our hard work, we published a blog post
that highlights our achievements over the past four years and what sets us apart from others in the space. 🏆
The TLDR version
Ether Capital was formed by a group of traditional finance executives, crypto natives and venture capitalists who believe that Ethereum is a once-in-a-generation asset reshaping the world of finance.
After witnessing the ICO boom of 2017, our goal was to create a leading access point to this emerging ecosystem for investors to get exposure in a secure way. This was also during a time when there were no access points in the capital markets, crypto ETFs, or institutional-grade custody. 🏛️
Timing is everything
We launched in the midst of a brutal bear market and everyone thought we were crazy! 😵
Ether Capital went from having $50 million in assets to roughly $10 million
, and the cost of running a public company was too high. But we dug in our heels and didn’t give up. Not once did we stray from our commitment to Ethereum and were confident it would become a global settlement layer 🌎 underpinning all sorts of financial activity.
It’s been a wild ride, but when there’s high risk, there’s also high reward. 📈
We look forward to the months ahead as we continue building out our operating business and remain a leading and trusted access point to Ethereum/Web3 in the capital markets.
The lesson in all of this? If you believe in something, keep working at it and don’t give up. 💪 #WAGMI
