Our Thesis


Imagine the internet absent fintech. No Visa, no PayPal, no Stripe. Today, our internet lacks scalable micropayments of less than a dollar, a technology that will be far more impactful and wide-reaching than these existing payment solutions.


We envision businesses utilizing micropayments playing a predominant role in shaping how people interact with and use the internet in the coming decades.


Unbounded Capital invests globally in technical founders building seed-stage infrastructure companies utilizing micropayments to serve the billions of people on the internet.


Recent Progress


Q2 introduced exciting developments which present extremely high upside potential to Unbounded Capital and our portfolio companies. Tokenized’s long-awaited desktop wallet is proving worth the wait, with early customers and token issuers adopting their revolutionary tech immediately after launch. DXS’s USD-denominated trading has opened up enormous new markets for their product to move into. Haste and HandCash’s rapid adoption of Ordinals and innovation around new use cases have driven engagement, including from outside of the BSV ecosystem.


Since focusing on the scalable blockchain ecosystem in April of 2019, our Fund I has returned 1,887.25%*

Performance Disclaimer

*Returns generated by fund administrators; audited by Richey May in 2018. The Opportunity Fund was initially launched on 8/1/18 and until 4/1/19 was managed in a strategy that broadly invested in blockchain. In April 2019, the fund's investment strategy shifted significantly to focus solely on companies operating within the Bitcoin SV ecosystem, with long BSV exposure. Because of the dramatic change in the fund's investment strategy, the performance above is shown for the period beginning 5/1/19 ending on 6/1/2023. The General Partner does not believe the fund's performance prior to April 1, 2019 is relevant in light of the material differences in the strategy used. Since the fund’s first external investor subscription to the fund on October 1st, 2018, that investor’s performance net of fees is 393.23%. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
