The latest investment from Katie Haun’s new crypto VC firm has major starpower behind it. The venture founded by Haun, a departing Andreessen Horowitz general partner, participated in a $170 million Series B round for Autograph, star quarterback Tom Brady’s non-fungible token (NFT) startup. TechCrunch first reported the deal, and Haun’s team confirmed it with The Information.
Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins led the round, which also saw participation from Nicole Quinn, a general partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners. Quinn previously pointed to Autograph as an NFT startup to watch during The Information’s Creator Economy Summit in October.
