Balaji Srinivasan is an angel investor, former chief technology officer of Coinbase and a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz. He has also been the co-founder and CEO of Earn.com (which was acquired by Coinbase), Counsyl (acquired by Myriad), Teleport (acquired by Topia) and Coin Center.
Balaji Srinivasan's 2019:
In May, Srinivasan announced his departure from Coinbase on Twitter with reports indicating a divergence in forward business strategy that led to the company's recent managerial shifts. In August, Srinivasan was announced as a strategic advisor to the fintech blockchain project Findora. The December launch of Pronomos Capital, a venture fund focused on bringing Silicon Valley innovation and disruption to the creation of mini city-states and charter cities, announced Srinivasan as an advisor.
What Cointelegraph expects for 2020:
Srinivasan's 2019 was largely quiet following his departure from Coinbase, but it's clear the investor and builder was getting a lay of the land before making his next move. The surprise launch of Nakamoto.com, a publication featuring thought pieces by movers and shakers in the crypto space, was discovered to be the brainchild of Srinivasan. We expect Srinivasan will continue to curate Nakamoto and advise/invest in a range of ventures throughout the new year.
