With over a decade of experience in both finance and technology, the company takes a unique approach to researching and identifying potential opportunities. Discussing their strategy on their website, they explain,

We invest behind digital assets that address tangible use cases, demonstrate signs of product-market fit, and exhibit compelling cryptoeconomic models.[2]

The company has received investments from firms including Dragonfly Capital Partners, Bain Capital Ventures, and 9Yards Capital[5]. On September 29, 2020, it was announced by Michael Novogratz, Chief Executive Officer of Galaxy Digital, that Galaxy Digital would become a minority shareholder in ParaFi. Novogratz explained "We want to stay close to the cutting edge," and added,

My instinct is, this is a really important part of the ecosystem.[6]


ParaFi began investing in DeFi in 2018, deploying capital behind early DeFi (Decentralized Finance) protocols including Compound, , Uniswap, and Synthetix[7].

In addition to investing in DeFi protocols, ParaFi actively supports its portfolio as a power user, liquidity provider, and governance participant. Examples of ParaFi's sustained involvement in the DeFi community include Andreessen Horowitz delegating its crypto fund's Compound governance rights to the firm, as well as ParaFi's active participation in monetary policy on the  network.
