Arcana is seeking to change the Web3 investing landscape. The company is building the datasets, analysis tools and investor process infrastructure to enable institutional investors to approach crypto seriously as an asset class.

The company’s $5.3M seed round was led by FTX, Duquesne (Stan Druckenmiller), Tiger Global, Abstract Ventures, CMS Holdings, GoldenTree Asset Management, Floating Point Group (institutional crypto exchange), Kevin Hu (GP Dragonfly), Ryan Roslansky (CEO LinkedIn), Sandeep Nailwal (Cofounder Polygon), Akshay Kothari (COO Notion), Santiago Santos, Folius, Sean Pi (Cofounder Skolem) and many other strategic angels.
