Chris Dixon is coming to talk crypto — and much more — at Disrupt SF60

It’s 2019, and most institutional money managers are still taking a wait-and-see approach to crypto assets, concerned in part about market manipulation schemes and other nefarious actors. Though a growing number of top establishments is beginning to kick the tires — Harvard just made its first bet on a crytpo currency, following an investment last year by Yale into the cryptocurrency fund Paradigm, and two U.S. pension funds got into the game in February — it’s happening more slowly than adherents would like.

One of these early and abiding crypto believers, famously, is Chris Dixon, a native Ohioan and now general partner at Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) who studied philosophy at Columbia before launching two startups: SiteAdvisor, an internet security company that warned web users of security threats and was acquired by McAfee in 2006, and later Hunch, a recommendation technology company that was acquired by eBay in 2011.
