About Us

Block by Block Capital has built a global operational presence, focused on cryptocurrency arbitrage and blockchain/ICO advisory. Within the past year, weโ€™ve turned over nine-figure volume in crypto-to-fiat arbitrage and have now rolled forward our private capital into our own private hedge fund. We have also been appointed strategic advisors for a few of our portfolio investments, and have since helped them achieve growth milestones in their go-to-market strategy. Our company vision is to operate in a way that stabilizes and grows the global crypto market, while simultaneously connecting the fragmented pockets of the global blockchain community. We will achieve our goals by uniting our hedge fund and advisory services with a complete treasury management service offering.

As our operations expand, we need our team to grow so we can continue to deliver excellence across a harmonized business front. We have a presence in the primary industry hubs such as US, Korea and Singapore, but now strongly believe that centering our Asian operations to be primarily Singapore-based will keep us as the forefront of the booming crypto industry. Join our Singapore team as the first hire outside of our passionate founding team and help us drive industry innovation as our lead engineer.
