Arrington Capital Launches $100 Million Fund to Invest in Algorand-Based Initiatives

Arrington Algo Growth Fund Will Focus On Further Expanding the Algorand Ecosystem

Arrington Capital, a digital asset management firm in blockchain-based capital markets, announced it has launched a new $100 million USD fund to support initiatives building on Algorand, a leading blockchain accelerating the convergence of decentralized and traditional finance. The Arrington Algo Growth Fund (AAGF) aims to encourage and spur additional development on Algorand, which has seen significant growth and adoption recently across DeFi (decentralized finance), traditional finance, the public sector, NFT space and more.

AAGF will invest in Algorand-focused projects, including liquid and illiquid coins, to empower projects that are creating new financial applications in the Algorand ecosystem. Algorand, the brainchild of Turing Award winner Silvio Micali, was designed from the ground up for modern financial applications and provides the security, decentralization, scalability and efficiency needed to support billions of users — all on a carbon-negative blockchain.
