About Dove Metrics
Dove Metrics was established in 2020 by Regan Bozman and Pierre Chuzeville. The duo will continue to focus on early-stage investments at Lattice Funds.
Since its establishment, the firm has established a robust database with insights about more than 8,000 investor portfolios. These include angel investors, investment DAOs, venture capitalist funds, corporate funds, and hedge funds.
Additionally, the firm has kept an up-to-date record of crypto funding rounds. Apart from covering about 300 of those funding rounds and about 200 mergers, the firm has recorded insights from about 3000 funding rounds.
Following the acquisition, all of its insights have been integrated into the Messari platform, making them available to Messari users.
Concerns about the Acquisition
Host of Cryptonized, Mark Fidelman, expressed his excitement at the acquisition in a tweet. He said, “(It is) very important to stay up to date on where the VC cash is flowing, especially in the depths of a bear market.”
Meanwhile, several other users expressed mixed feelings about the acquisition. The chief concern was that the insights would no longer be available to the public for free.
Messari charges a premium fee, allowing subscribers–only access to its data. It recently published Q2 reports about the BNB chain and Tezos and blockchain platforms Harmony and Maker. All these reports are available for reading to the platform’s subscribers.
