Swiss investment company Crypto Valley Venture Capital (CV VC) has invested $75 000 in Cape Town based crypto startup PocketJam, a platform that incentivises children to solve math problems to earn pocket money.


Last week CV VC CEO and founder Mathias Ruch revealed in a statement that the investor is looking at whether or not to set up an African chapter in Mauritius (see this story). In the statement he mentioned that through its CV Labs Incubation Programme, the Zug based investor had invested in two blockchain startups with “South African roots”.


While he did not reveal the names of these South African startups, Ventureburn can confirm that one is PocketJam, a platform that incentivises children to solve math problems to earn pocket money.
