About Us:

PTC Crypto is an early-stage venture fund launched in early 2021. We invest in crypto native founders and early companies building in the Consumer Crypto category. Our core investment thesis revolves around consumer verticals utilizing crypto technologies enabling owning digital objects and open & composable application logic. PTC Crypto works closely with founders on business development, connecting them with their highest priority go-to-market needs from the earliest stages through mainstream growth.

Brett Shear is the Managing Partner of PTC Crypto, which is a partnership with Palm Tree Crew Holdings, a diversified holding company founded in 2020 by Kyrre Gørvell-Dahl (Kygo) and Myles Shear. Our team has a deep understanding of the space and provides meaningful portfolio support.

Ultimately, we have the most focused network of application and infrastructure partners within the Consumer Crypto category.

Thesis:

The future of the internet will be constructed on permissionless infrastructure, using smart contracts that allow developers to build openly. It will also consist of owning digital objects, or NFTs, online that will establish digital relationships and build online identities, all under the user's control. Blockchain technology enables new actions, applications, and business models that weren't previously possible or hadn't been imagined in that context. We focus on sub-sectors that are fundamentally based on the principles of crypto improving current consumer business models and the technology stack. These categories include Consumer & NFT Infrastructure, Content Protocols, Web3 Social, and Autonomous Worlds.
