When legendary venture capitalist Marc Andreessen spots a trend, people tend to listen—and this week he shared with CNBC the top three tech trends that excite him.
As an Internet pioneer turned venture capitalist, Andreessen's large wingspan touches just about every aspect of technology. His firm, Andreessen Horowitz, has investments in big players like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Skype and Airbnb, as well as countless startups across a wide range of industries and platforms. Andreessen himself sits on the boards of Hewlett-Packard, eBay and Facebook, along with other companies.
Andreessen's first trend dealt with the financial services sector, and he reiterated his outspoken belief in the long-term value of bitcoin.
