The epicenter of the bitcoin and blockchain industry
Our mission is to accelerate the development of a better financial system. We build and support bitcoin and blockchain companies by leveraging our insights, network, and access to capital.
Build: Our Subsidiaries
It is our view that broad exposure with the optionality to concentrate our focus is a winning strategy. We build service businesses to fill important gaps in the existing market infrastructure. We incubate, acquire, and operate businesses that provide a variety of financial and professional services to financial institutions, corporations, and startups.

Support: Global Reach
DCG is not a venture fund. We are a strategic investor, and we are building and supporting the largest early stage investment portfolio in the digital currency and blockchain ecosystem. We aim to support the best teams in our target markets by providing capital through a company’s lifecycle, connecting them to our network, and using our collective knowledge and insights to help companies grow and scale.
Network: Understanding Stakeholders
The Digital Currency Group team is working hard to create a new model for innovation. We rely on a strong network of entrepreneurs, investors, institutions, governments, and academics – really smart people who are helping shape and guide the vision for this industry.
Why we do what we do at DCG. Our brand defines a common vision, what we believe in, and a set of shared values that define our conduct and engagement model.
Who we work with – this includes a broad network of companies, investors, and other stakeholders. We focus on building strong relationships to connect stakeholders to one another.
How we work with our network. This includes facilitating and coordinating action, organizing around and advocating for our companies, and participating in conversations to move the industry, and our portfolio, forward.
