Robot Ventures reported on Twitter that former Goldman Sachs trader Hart Lambur was appointed as a partner.
Lambur is best known for co-founding the cryptocurrency project UMA, which enables the creation of financial products on the Ethereum network.
Robot Ventures, which was created by protocol Compound Labs founder Robert Leshner, tweeted, “Welcome @hal2001, our newest Venture Partner, to the Robot family.”
“As the inventor of UMA & Across procedures, Hart has a lot of knowledge and will work closely with our investment initiatives,” the business stated.
Robot Ventures did not reply to a request for comment immediately. Robot Ventures made waves in 2020 when it hired Tarun Chitra, a quant with a giga-brain, after raising $4 million in new capital. Chitra is the firm’s managing partner.
The company has supported many decentralized financial businesses, including Nansen, Argent, Goldfinch, and LayerZero.
Early in his career, Chitra conducted quantitative research and development at D.E. Shaw Research and Vatic Labs. Since 2018, he has operated his own firm, Gauntlet, which offers tools for crypto developers that enable them to predict project-related risk.
According to his LinkedIn page, Lambur, a graduate of Columbia University, spent more than seven years with Goldman Sachs as an interest rate trader providing liquidity in US Treasuries.
