We are just starting
Our story begins with our founder Andrei discovering Bitcoin in 2012 while studying Software Engineering at University of Waterloo at the same time as Vitalik Buterin, future founder of Ethereum, was starting his studies there. Fast forward to 2016, Ethereum was celebrating its first birthday and the newly introduced ERC20 token standard was on the verge of taking crowdfunding into a new era of Initial Coin Offerings. Before long, an entire ecosystem that embraced thousands of digital assets hit the market. Plasma Capital was launched to support early pioneers in the field and to identify the most promising investments among the wealth of digital assets.
With our strong belief in potential of blockchain technology, we started Plasma Capital to act as the catalyst for widespread blockchain adoption and innovation. As developers and serial entrepreneurs, we are no strangers to the challenges that emerge when carrying a venture from concept to release and adoption. We seek out disruptive technologies and enable the developers to push it to the limits. We also recognize the vital role of leadership within this young and dynamic field. While searching for new ventures, we dig deep for visionary leadership with the power to shape the future and enable them to succeed.
