Blockchain Capital announced the hiring of Spencer Bogart as managing director and head of research.

Bogart is perhaps best known in the bitcoin community as the author behind Needham & Company’s various reports on bitcoin and blockchain technology. While most Wall Street analysts are lambasted by bitcoin believers due to their misunderstandings of the digital asset, Bogart’s knowledge of the technology has won him general praise from much of the community.

“Spencer is the most respected and widely followed Wall Street Research Analyst to cover blockchain technology and Bitcoin. His industry research report on the Blockchain, as a technology, was a seminal piece of research and is a reference point for hedge fund managers, other venture capitalists, and sophisticated investors around the globe,” said Bart Stephens, Co-founder and Managing Partner of the firm. “Spencer has a talent for deep due diligence in a nascent industry — blockchain technology. We expect him to help us dramatically increase our research and publication capabilities and be a valuable member of the investment team. We are excited to welcome him aboard.”

Blockchain Capital is the first venture capital firm to focus exclusively on the blockchain technology sector.
