Crypto-focused hedge fund Multicoin Capital plans to raise $250 million for a third venture fund aimed at crypto startups, The Information reported after reviewing the company’s fundraising materials. 

Austin, Texas-based Multicoin had already raised $100 million for a second fund in May, and plans to finish fundraising by the end of 2021. It joins other firms bolstering their crypto funds this year, including Andreessen Horowitz .

Multicoin is interested in exploring opportunities in decentralized finance (DeFi) interest rate markets, its co-founder Tushar Jain wrote on Oct. 6.
