VC firm Andra Capital is selling a ‘Silicon Valley’ cryptocurrency - Decrypt (

Andra Capital, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm, has announced its own token: Silicon Valley Coin (SVC). The company plans to issue it via a security token offering (STO) in collaboration with Tezos Foundation and TokenSoft.

According to the press release shared with 
Decrypt today, SVC will be built on the Tezos blockchain and utilize TokenSoft’s issuance platform. The fund will use it to invest in late-stage technology companies.

 “Andra Capital’s open-ended technology fund allows investors to invest in the fund traditionally with the option to take delivery of a blockchain-based token, Silicon Valley Coin,” the announcement states.

The Tezos blockchain was chosen thanks to its institutional-grade security of smart contracts and several features “well suited” for high-value digital assets such as security tokens in the long term.
