Starchain Capital is an investment fund that focuses on crypto-assets and blockchain based technologies. It was founded in 2017 by French entrepreneurs Cyril Paglino and Andrea Riom and is based in Los Angeles, California.
Before launching Starchain Capital, Paglino relocated to San Francisco in order to build the social messaging startup Tribe. It was from Tribe's failure that led to Paglino's interest in blockchain. As an angel investor and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Paglino immersed himself in both communities, learning about each industry and establishing his network. It was from this that Paglino and his Tribe co-founder Andrea Riom were able to launch Starchain Capital after Tribe closed shop. In 2018, Starchain Capital raised about $12 million to invest in blockchain projects.
