#Crypto Bear Market Affecting Venture Capital Valuations
Venture capital (VC) valuations have been deeply affected by the #cryptocurrency bear market, sais Jalak Jobanputra, founding partner of Future Perfect Ventures. Jobanputra commented on the current state of venture capital in the #crypto space in an interview with Fortunes’ Balancing the Ledger on Feb. 11.
When asked whether there is a trend of discounted venture evaluations across the #digital currency space, Jobanputra said that “given how much the volumes have decreased in the last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if we are seeing valuations come down on the secondary markets for some of these companies.” A recent report suggested that shares of crypto finance firm Circle were #trading at a 75 percent discount on secondary markets.
Jobanputra, who also sits on the board of directors at #digital foreign #exchange BitPesa, has purportedly invested in crypto- and blockchain-related firms like Civic and Blockstream.
Speaking about the company’s decision not to invest in initial coin offerings ( #ICOs ), Jobanputra argued that “they were exposed financially to the downturn in the crypto #markets as well as from a technology standpoint. And a lot of my experience investing in the Internet days informed a decision to stay out of the %ICO market.” Jobanputra also said that cryptocurrency companies are pivoting into the #venture#capital space, although previously most VC funds were reportedly staying away from that markets. She said that it is necessary for firms to find new ways to raise capital in order to survive in the existing environment.
Founded in 2014 in New York, Future Perfect Ventures is a venture capital firm focusing on early stage #investments primarily in technology companies, including blockchain, machine learning, and data analytics.
Recently, Bloomberg released a report stating that amid the 2018 market slump, the launch of new crypto venture #funds for the first time exceeded that of new hedge funds in the space. 125 new crypto venture funds were reportedly launched in 2018, as compared with 115 new investment-oriented crypto hedge funds.
Buy atleast 1btc at a lower price now that you can and invest it. This is because bitcoin price is returning back to the $14000 it was and even eclipsing it upto the $20000 mark by the end of the year.
Don’t think the reduction is actually a sign for you not to invest in bitcoin , it’s actually an opportunity for you to buy bitcoins at a lower price.

Hey friends! @kass_takes_selfies and I are asking for your help. We're pretty private for the most part, but need some assistance here. We're super excited to take this next step in our lives but our original plan didn't work the way we'd hoped, so we've needed to go the medical route. Which is friggin expensive. Over the course of the next several months we have to come up with A LOT of money out of pocket. Insurance will cover some after the fact but not nearly enough and it will only cover some of the first round. If there needs to be a second or third we're entirely on our own.
We really want to start a family. We're both so ready and so excited for this next step in our lives and we can't wait. We saved money but because this wasn't our original plan just don't have enough. We're both actively seeking second jobs but the money is needed quickly.
Any help is appreciated.
We love you all. ❤️ https://www.gofundme.com/f/5fnxfz-it-takes-a-village-to-make-a-child

Shahid lost his father when he was still in his mother’s womb and his mother had to raise him all by herself. Life was going on but when Shahid turned 15, he started getting sick frequently, often running a high fever for days. That was the onset of his disease. Over the years he had to undergo recurring blood transfusions to survive. “While fasting during the month of Ramadhan, all day I would be running here and there from morning to evening asking for money. My condition by the end of the day was akin to beggars who sleep on roads. Completely exhausted I would yearn for a place to crash. But I still wouldn’t rest, hoping I might find someone who could help,” Shahid mother recalls.
Having lost her husband, Shahid’s mother was struggling to save him, but your donations ensured that he underwent successful treatment. With the help of 390 supporters, his campaign raised over Rs 10 lakh with which Shahid’s Stem Cell Transplant was funded.

Without your help, I wouldn't have reached this far! God bless you and may all your wishes come true," Shahid says.

I guess Starbucks is my favourite example💯 in many ways. I’ve been talking about them even during tax optimisation trainings. So they have not only built a business empire but also manage it cost and tax wise.⠀⠀

“I lost 4 of my children, one after the other. I worked day & night & did whatever I could in my power to give them a healthy lifestyle & diet -- but nothing worked. They all passed away before they turned 5 & no one knew what went wrong. I’ve had sleepless nights where I’ve prayed to god to keep them alive, but I lost them.
For years after that, my husband & I couldn’t forget the horrific ways in which our children died, while we stood powerless. Things changed when I got pregnant again – but we couldn’t lose this child too. I couldn’t have survived that trauma again.
So we decided that if there was even the slightest chance that our child gets to live, we don’t want to snatch that away. When Sivaprakash was born, we took every small precaution. As he grew up, we regularly took him to the doctor & even started saving up in case anything were to go wrong.
He knew about his brothers, so he’d always say, ‘I am here for you, I am not going anywhere.’ He never insisted on going out with friends or doing things kids his age would do – he just wanted was to be with us.
But this May, after he finished giving his 10th grade boards, one day, he got high fever. I went to the doctors, and they asked us to do a few tests. After the results we were asked to do a Bone Marrow Test in Coimbatore. Finally we were told that he has HLH, Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, a life threatening condition.
My husband plucks coconuts & I iron clothes, so our income is very low. But with what we had saved up, we’ve spent over 3 lakhs for his treatment & don’t have any money left. We need 20 lakhs more for a stem cell transplant or he won’t survive.
He was the light of our lives, but today, he’s on his deathbed. We had to leave the hospital because we don’t have money left. I’m terrified of losing him, and I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him alive -- because he doesn’t deserve this… None of my kids did. “
Sivaprakash has only just begun to live his life, but without our support, he will not survive. Let’s come together & let’s prevent his family from having to watch another one of their children die. Please consider donating & tagging someone who can, through the link in the bio.
“My wife was a domestic help & I, a labourer. We didn’t earn much, but we were happy. After 2 years, we gave birth to our son, Hitesh. But the doctors told us that he had jaundice. We’re both uneducated, so we had no idea what it was. But we worked day & night to pay for his treatment.
It went on for 4 months. We thought he was cured, but the doctors told us that he had lost his eyesight. We were shattered. We didn’t have the funds for a surgery that would help him see again–so we took him home. That was one of the hardest decisions we made.
He was in constant discomfort & he’d cry a lot. We got by for a while–my wife stayed at home & I’d work. But one day, I fell & broke my hand. I lost my old job, so our income reduced & we were both forced to take up daily wage jobs.
We had no choice but to leave Hitesh at home, alone. We had to tie him up to ensure he didn’t hurt himself. We’d leave food & water in his reach but he had to pee & defecate on the bed. He’d lay there, in his own waste till we came & cleaned it.
When Hitesh was 5, we gave birth to Prince. But he couldn’t walk because he had deformed toes. My sons don’t have any friends, especially Hitesh. The kids bully him & treat him like an untouchable. Hitesh screams whenever we take him out–he’s ashamed of being called a freak.
He can’t take it anymore & prefers being tied up–he thinks that’s the only way he’ll be safe. I think about him all day at work. I save every rupee just to get him biscuits. I can buy it only once in 3 days. But it’s worth it–the way he smiles when he gets it is priceless.
At this point, nothing we’re doing is enough–everyday I curse myself for being an incapable father. For a parent, there’s nothing worse than seeing their child suffer for no fault of theirs. Hitesh has lived in agony from the day he was born–I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure he doesn’t die that way.”
Hitesh needs funds for a surgery that will restore his eyesight. Without our help, Hitesh will never be able to see the world & live the life every child deserves. Let’s come together as a community to help him. Please consider donating & tagging someone who can, through the link in our bio.
