Data for the decentralized economy
Coin Metrics was founded in 2017 as an open-source project to use blockchain data to answer a critical question: “what is the economic significance of major public blockchains?” Today, Coin Metrics’ data empowers clients to better understand, value, and build upon open crypto networks.
To onboard the world’s premiere financial institutions into crypto with the most trusted data and insights.
We are on the verge of a transition towards economies that are more open, transparent, and trust-distributed. We believe public blockchains and crypto networks will play a key role in this transition but it will require they remain open and auditable. Open data will empower the public to better understand, value, use, and ultimately steward public crypto networks.
Data itself is neutral. It is only in its interpretation and presentation where bias can be found. Coin Metrics believes in letting data tell its story. We will always be neutral in the derivation of our metrics and in their analysis and reporting.
Today there exists hundreds of crypto networks and thousands of assets. Understanding their unique economics and participant activity is challenging. This is why we believe in clarity. Clarity in purpose. Clarity in method. In interpretation. And in action.
If we are not creating, innovating, and discovering, we will not be satisfied with ourselves and don’t expect others to be satisfied with us. Our goal is to set industry standards for how we name, organize, and think about crypto networks and their assets.
Our data is designed for accessibility and actionability. Before we create a metric, we seek to understand it–what it’s telling us, why it’s important, how it can be used. This is a never-ending process of learning and discovery. It excites us and drives us. And we know it will drive you too.
Our customers span a wide range of financial services firms in crypto.
They include crypto-native and traditional funds and asset managers, research desks, and global investment banks.
