Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz has hired Katie Haun as its first female general investing partner to run the company’s newly formed $300 million cryptocurrency fund, according to an announcement published June 25.
Haun, who is also a director on the board of Coinbase, served as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice for ten years, where she focused on digital assets and cryptocurrency startups. She reportedly led investigations into Mt. Gox and took down the corrupt agents on the Silk Road task force. Ben Horowitz, co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz, said:
