One of the most influential venture capital companies of Silicon Valley intends to open its own fund, entirely dedicated to work with cryptocurrencies. This is repoted by Recode.

Rumors about the possible creation of a new division of Andreessen Horowitz have been on the web for quite some time, which is not surprising, as the company, also known as A16z, previously invested in Coinbase, Earn.com and CryptoKitties, and its founder Mark Andrissen is a big supporter of cryptocurrency .

Two new job openings by Andreessen Horowitz confirms the information that had spread earlier.

Currently, the venture company is looking for a "Manager for financial and operational activities, Cryptoactive" and "Legal Support Specialist, Cryptoactive". Both vacancies indicate that the company hires employees for an "individually managed fund that focuses on crypto assets."

The Legal Counsel will monitor "compliance with all necessary SEC requirements" and "manage the compliance of the firm / fund activities with all SEC requirements / other requirements", and the operational manager will among other things evaluate the crypto-currency assets.
