On Wednesday, gCC announced that they were launching a new fund, Fund II, capitalizing on the momentum of the resounding success of their Fund I.

“As Celsius seeks to bring the next 100 million users into crypto, guidance from partners like Miko Matsumura at gCC has been invaluable. Miko has shown remarkable foresight and insight about the way Web3 is remaking the world, and I look forward to seeing this new fund launch the next generation of companies.”

The Rise of the Experimental Age

Miko Matsumura, gCC Managing Partner, painted a vivid picture with his description of the Experimental Age:

“We live in the Experimental Age. The existing institutions and infrastructure, including social infrastructure, governance, financial services, and big tech, are demonstrably failing us. Because the way forward is unknown, there’s a strong appetite for experimentation.”

He describes crypto tokens as a monetary experiment that can power Web3: DAOs and guilds are an experiment in governance; NFTs are an experiment in digital assets; and the metaverse is a “collection of experimental realities.”

A world-class team has been assembled, and portfolio leadership teams will have access to gCC’s exceptional global network. What a thrilling time for those of us living in the age of blockchain, watching these companies ascend, offer mutual support to each other, and drive industry-wide innovation. With this latest announcement, it’s clear that gCC is laser-focused on elevating the finest in the blockchain space.
