Ali Yahya of a16z: “We’ve Entered The Golden Era Of Blockchain Applications”

Golden Era Has Begun

By: Camila Russo

Ali Yahya is a General Partner at a16z, also known as Andreessen Horowitz. A16z is an investment giant – in the last two years they raised 6.7 billion dollars between their crypto funds. They are the single greatest crypto dedicated fund in the world. Given their large impact in the space, I was interested in knowing how a16z got their start in crypto – their first investment, where they channeled their focus, and how they evolved to where they are today.
