M31 Capital


Case Study Focus


Submit your highest conviction investment idea for a publicly traded token with a market cap over $5M USD. M31 Capital is a long-only, thesis-driven investment firm focused on blockchain-based token projects disrupting Wall St. (DeFi) and Silicon Valley (Web3), so priority will be given to submissions with a BUY recommendation on a token project within our focus (see below). 

The submission should clearly articulate your investment thesis and demonstrate a thorough understanding of the basics:


What problem does this technology solve? Who are the users/customers? Are they paying to use the product? How much of that revenue accrues to the token holders? Why can't a competitor copy this? Is the world a better place with this technology in it? Why will more people be using this product a year from now? 

Finally, you are expected to tie all of these factors back together into a specific price target based on your own valuation analysis included in the submission.
