Cypherpunk was conceived in 2018 as a blockchain and crypto start up. True to its name, our company adopted the Cypherpunk Manifesto – that “privacy is necessary for an open society and electronic age” – as our fundamental investment thesis. Our ticker HODL reflected our unwavering commitment to this idea – that our investments may come and go but we will NEVER SHORT the most precious commodity in the known universe – PRIVACY.
As the roots of the crypto wisdom tree, privacy tech spurred on the crypto innovation – enabling a rich diaspora of decentralized apps and services to emerge and challenge incumbent and entrenched models. These revisionist forces have created once-in-lifetime opportunities for bold visionaries to seize the moment and make their mark. Cypherpunk is positioned to become a captain of the digital economy and a steward of blockchain and crypto innovation. As a matter of course, our investment thesis has evolved and adapt to new trends and market dynamics.
Our journey toward a Decentralized, Permission-less and Anonymized society has just begun. Without necessarily knowing how it all ends, our shareholders can be certain that we are vested in the future and for the future.
