Funding the next generation of changemakers, innovators, and visionaries building on the blockchain.

What is cFund?

cFund is an early-stage sector agnostic venture firm in the Blockchain industry anchored by IOHK and managed by Wave Financial. The firm is a dedicated team of investors and entrepreneurs zealous about blockchain technology and digital assets looking to back ambitious founders globally.

Why is IOHK anchoring a venture firm?

IOHK is the technology and research company that developed the Cardano blockchain and ADA cryptocurrency. In today’s rapidly expanding blockchain sector, Cardano is seen as a world leader in sustainable, proof-of-stake blockchain technology behind smart contracts, DeFi and identity solutions. To accelerate the adoption of the Cardano blockchain technology, IOHK partnered with a recognized asset manager to bring more world-changing ideas and solutions to market faster.

Why the Cardano blockchain?

Cardano is a blockchain platform for changemakers, innovators and visionaries. It is the first blockchain platform to be founded on peer-reviewed research and developed through evidence-based methods. Cardano is open-source with more advanced features than any protocol yet developed. And it incorporates IOHK’s groundbreaking Proof-of-Stake (POS) algorithm Ouroboros, which significantly increases the resilience necessary for mission-critical systems and in theory reduces energy consumption by over millionfold compared to Bitcoin.
