Nick Tomaino, general partner of 1confirmation, discusses his firm’s second fund of $45 million, announced this week, how prospective LPs have changed from 2017 to 2019, and what types of projects 1confirmation is interested in. He also reveals why he doesn’t believe Libra will be meaningful in the long-term, what he thinks the top DeFi trends are, what impact Ethereum’s scaling issues could have, and what other protocols the fund has invested in. Plus, he explains how the firm decides whether to invest in companies or tokens when there is a choice.
