The firm has a solid investor base in Hong Kong and describes itself as one of Asia’s first VC firms focusing solely on blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The new fund’s primary focus will be on seed and series A investments. CMCC Global, which is backed by Gemini Trust founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, highlighted that blockchain investments in Asia have increased rapidly.

Hong Kong’s ambition to become a prominent virtual-asset trading hub has been boosted by the government’s allocation of HKD 50 million (about USD 6.4 million) for the expansion of its local Web3 ecosystem. Huobi, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, said in February that it would relocate its Asia headquarters from Singapore to Hong Kong. In the same month, Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission recommended allowing tokens such as bitcoin and ether to be traded on approved exchanges.
