The quality of our crypto data and intelligence has generated tremendous interest from the growing number of premier financial institutions engaging in cryptoassets, prompting us to expand our customer success and growth efforts globally. We have assembled an experienced team of top crypto, data and financial services experts, and I am proud of the industry-leading work they continue to produce.”
Following the completion of the company’s $15 million Series B in 2021, Coin Metrics received SOC 2 Type 1 accreditation from Deloitte. Setting itself apart from other crypto data providers, Coin Metrics has emerged as the clear market leader in the institutional space because it offers a comprehensive suite of services – including on-chain data, a universal block explorer, market data and metrics, indexes and network risk management – while maintaining our core values of open, pioneering, elucidating and neutral.

With Coin Metrics, we have the opportunity to advance the capabilities and conversation, and ultimately raise the bar on risk management for digital assets as an industry.”
