Crypto.com Capital, the investment arm of digital asset firm Crypto.com, announced the appointment of Jon Russell, one of the well-known technology journalists, as the fund’s newest partner today.

In March last year, the digital exchange introduced a $200 million fund to invest in emerging crypto companies. Crypto.com Capital now aims to support the growing Web3 ecosystem. In 2021, Crypto.com witnessed a surge in demand for its products due to a jump in the adoption of digital currencies. According to the exchange, the company now has more than 10 million users through products including a Visa debit card, trading exchange and NFT platform.

Russell has a strong presence in the global startup ecosystem. He spent nearly a decade as a tech journalist and worked with several leading news platforms like TechCrunch, The Next Web and The Ken. He started writing about the crypto market in 2014 and interviewed prominent executives in events across the world.

“I’ve had offers to move into crypto full-time before but Crypto.com is the most ambitious company in web3,” said Russell. “The Crypto.com Capital fund brings a very unique advantage to help the world’s best web3 founders and startups to realize their potential, and I can’t wait to play my part.”
