Andreessen Horowitz announced Monday that it has raised $300 million to invest in cryptocurrency-related startups, and that it will be led by former federal prosecutor Kathryn Haun.

Why it matters: Haun, who becomes Andreessen Horowitz's first female partner, is best known in tech circles for taking down a corrupt FBI agent involved in the infamous Silk Road investigation, and also for having founded the government's first-ever crypto task force.
