Cointelegraph Consulting has built the most comprehensive data set of all blockchain venture capital to date.

The report is divided into three major sections including information relevant for startups, venture capitalists (general partners) and investors (limited partners). The following are highlights from the report.

Projects with coins that were popular for 2020 blockchain VC deals included: Avalanche (AVAX), Curv (CRV), DerivaDEX (DDX), Nervos Network (CKB) and Zilliqa (ZIL), just to name a few.

Many blockchain VC funds have outperformed traditional VC funds. While traditional funds have had returns in the low double digits, several blockchain venture capital funds have earned 10 times that. Apart from the staggering returns, blockchain-focused VC funds have also enjoyed a low correlation with traditional asset classes.

For example, Blockchain Capital’s BCAP token’s correlation with stock indexes has been in the 0.00–0.14 range. The diversification potential for investors interested in venture capital is loud and clear.
