Co-Chief Investment Officer, Pantera Capital / Cofounder, Augur
Joey Krug is co-founder and a core-developer of Augur, a prediction market system where investors buy shares in possible outcomes of real-world future events—like political elections, sports events, and the academy awards—and profit if the outcome they invest in is a match with what actually happens. Augur also functions as a forecasting tool. Krug is co-chief investment officer of Pantera Capital, an ICO hedge fund that recently raised $35 million and has plans to raise $100 million more by summer’s end. At AngelList, he invests in companies that are creating “practical, novel things that should exist in the world but don’t …yet.” He’s especially interested in fintech, biotech and healthcare, crowdsourcing, and software. His love of computer programming started in his freshman year of high school with an Apple II GS he won in an auction on eBay, and with teaching himself to code on computers he hand-built, enhancing them with parts he’d solder together when necessary.
