Joey Krug Details

Joey started programming in Applesoft BASIC when in middle school after his dad bought him an Apple II GS on eBay. He studied CS in college because he enjoys being able to translate his ideas into code. Krug is co-CIO at Pantera Capital, one of the largest blockchain-focused investment firms, which he joined in 2017.

Krug is also the co-founder of the Forecast Foundation, which contributes to the development of Augur (a decentralized oracle and prediction market protocol), and Beam (a cryptocurrency that borrows elements of traditional currencies). Prior to Pantera, Joey built a sound based Point-of-Sale payment system.

Outside of the blockchain space, he co-started a top-ranked AngelList Syndicate. He is a Thiel Fellow and an Edmund Hillary Fellow. In his free time, Krug contributes to Pyethereum and enjoys reading. He’s also part of Founders Pledge.
