Crypto-Focused VC Firm Stratos Shares 109% Net Return for Liquid Token Fund in Q1


Stratos, a Newport Beach, CA-based venture capital firm focused on early-stage cryptoprojects with close to $500M assets under management, shared its Q1 gains showcasing a 137% return (109% net) for their liquid token fund and a total net value of over 25x for their second early-stage venture fund.

The liquid token fund saw substantial gains primarily from its holdings in Solana, Nosana, and $WIF (Dog Wif Hat), a popular memecoin that yielded a 300X return for the fund.

The venture fund growth was driven in part by Stratos’ early investment in Dymension, a modular blockchain built to power the internet of RollApps.

Stratos is focused on early-stage crypto projects. Leveraging deep research expertise, the firm invests in founders at the earliest stages. The portfolio includes Fuel Network, Space and Time, Dymension, and others. The team brings extensive experience in venture capital, entrepreneurship, and technology to provide targeted founder support.

Commenting on the news, Rennick Palley, Founding Partner at Stratos, said: “We’re very pleased to share such high returns with our LPs, who are aligned with our investment philosophy, which is based on investing early and with conviction in high-quality projects with exceptional teams. One aspect of our approach that may be more unique among our peer group is that we incorporate memecoins into our liquid fund portfolio. Memecoins have consistently outperformed other digital assets, have limited correlation to other alts sectors, and function as pure monetary assets with theoretically uncapped upside. As an example, we started buying WIF around $0.01 in December, delivering a 300X return since then for our liquid token fund.”
