What We're Building

Founded in 2013, Elliptic is a blockchain intelligence company. We identify illicit activity on the Bitcoin blockchain and provide our services to the leading Bitcoin companies and law enforcement agencies globally.

We believe Blockchains are the future of value transfer: Wedbush and the World Economic Forum have independently estimated that by 2025, 10% of economic activity will be on blockchains. Blockchains promise to bring a new world of value exchange; but they will also bring a new world of illicit activity.

Clients have used Elliptic to assess risk on more than $2BN in bitcoin transactions, and we have supported live investigations with law enforcement in the US, UK and EU.

As of March 2016 we secured $5m in Series A funding.

2015 Security Project of the Year Award - The Banker (a Financial Times publication).
2015 Swift Innotribe Growth Stage Startup competition winner.
KPMG Fintech 100 - selected as one of the world's 100 leading fintech companies.
