White Star Capital announced its second Digital Asset Fund (DAF II). The fund will focus on web3 companies and cryptocurrency networks in their early stages. A total of $120 million is expected to be invested.

Gaming companies and DeFi will be the center of attention of DAF II, supported by institutional investors, such as anchor LP and Ubisoft. The investment team of the fund will look to partner with founders across Seed, token rounds and Series A.

The new fund has a similar concept to the recently launched Investcorp Fund.

The first fund that was launched in 2020 has invested in 20 companies. Among the companies that were invested in the first fund are Ledn, Paraswap, Rally, Exlusible, ALEX and Multis.

DAF II will invest between $1 million and $7 million in 20 to 25 companies in the United States, Europe and Asia. Sep Alavi will be managing the fund with the support of Eddie Lee, Luke Xiao, Florent Jouanneau, Sanjay Zimmermann and Dimitri Nitchoun.
