Blockchain technology is powering a growing wave of innovation. Businesses and governments around the world are using blockchains to make banking more efficient, connect with their customers, and investigate criminal cases. As adoption of blockchain technology grows, more and more organizations seek access to all this ecosystem has to offer. That’s where Chainalysis comes in. We provide complete knowledge of what’s happening on blockchains through our data, services, and solutions. With Chainalysis, organizations can navigate blockchains safely and with confidence.

Engineers at Chainalysis are driven by working on new technical challenges every day. As relentless problem-solvers and big dreamers, we’re building technology that enables widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies and lays the foundation for a new economic paradigm.

Transpose products power leading DeFi protocols, tax and compliance use-cases, and cutting-edge machine learning workloads. Our work also plays an important role for the wider Chainalysis family, who build industry-leading products that enable law enforcement agencies, the world’s largest cryptocurrency businesses, and major financial institutions to take down dark web marketplaces, prosecute child predators, and solve major cybercrime incidents like the Twitter Hack (yeah, we do all that!).
