Today we’re announcing that Coinbase has acquired Neutrino, a blockchain intelligence platform.
Blockchain intelligence is increasingly important in the crypto ecosystem, and is necessary to achieve our mission of bringing the open financial system to the world. By analyzing data on public blockchains, Neutrino will help us prevent theft of funds from peoples’ accounts, investigate ransomware attacks, and identify bad actors. It will also help us bring more cryptocurrencies and features to more people while helping ensure compliance with local laws and regulations.
Neutrino’s technology is the best we’ve encountered in this space, and it will play an important role in legitimizing crypto, making it safer and more accessible for people all over the world.
Led by some of the world’s leading blockchain engineering and security experts, Neutrino will continue to operate as a standalone business based out of our London office. We’re excited to welcome them to the Coinbase family!
