ABOUT US

LuneX Ventures is a dedicated Blockchain and CryptoCurrency fund in partnership with Golden Gate Ventures; a well established South East Asia based VC.

LuneX was created on the back of our strong belief in the long term disruptive impact of this new technology. The rise of decentralised trust based networks will not only transform existing industries beyond recognition it also has the power to provide billions of underserved people with access to financial services so they can take control of their own lives and create a better future.

The Story Behind the Name

Mankind did not wake up one morning and decide to set foot on the moon. This eventual achievement required visionaries, pioneers and people brave enough to take risks. Much before the Apollo missions to the moon, the US Air Force had laid out a Lunar Expedition Plan called Lunex. This expedition was chosen as the goal since ‘it not only provides a sufficient challenge’ but also provides ‘technical fallouts for greatly improved capabilities’. It was an ambitious project which required great technical skills, courage and forward thinking. Lunex laid down the foundations of space exploration and the landing of man on the moon.

Much like the Lunex Expedition Plan, we at LuneX Ventures view current entrepreneurs in the crypto space as visionaries laying the groundwork for an industry that will change the world beyond anyone’s current expectations.
