Pantera Capital (est. 2013) is a San Francisco-based investment firm focused on blockchain technologies.[1][2]

Pantera was founded by CEO Dan Morehead, a former chief financial officer and head of macro trading at hedge fund Tiger Management.[3][2][4] Pantera announced in March 2014 that it had shifted its focus to bitcoin and other digital currencies, having previously been primarily working with global macro hedge-fund investments.[5]

Pantera’s portfolio investments include bitcoin services provider BitPesa,[6] exchange platform Bitstamp,[7] BitPagos Inc.,[8] 21 Inc.,[9] Ripio Credit Network,[10] ChangeTip,[11] Circle[12] and Xapo.[3]

In 2014, Pantera announced a partnership with Fortress Investment Group, Benchmark and Ribbit Capital to create a shared bitcoin investment fund led by Pantera, Pantera Bitcoin Partners.[13][2] Of the deal, CEO Morehead said, “We believe Bitcoin is at an inflection point, making it the right time for a transition to more institutional management."[14] The partnership was said to indicate “a significant step in the push to move Bitcoin into the financial mainstream.”[2] In October 2017, Pantera Capital along with Blockchain Capita and Polychain Capital contributed $50 million Kik Interactive Inc's presale.[15] In the same month Pantera raised $5 million in video streaming token pre-sale.[16]
