Huge demand for blockchain analytics services
The Boston-headquartered company’s solutions offer in-depth knowledge of blockchains to its customers. It provides parsing service to 25 blockchains including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Algorand, KIN, AION, DASH, and Ontology.
Based on its analytics, the company also provides a ranking system called Fundamental Crypto Asset Score (FCAS), which ranks over 520 cryptocurrencies.
“Blockchains, the organizations that support them, and the applications that build on them are first and foremost businesses that need customers and revenue to succeed,” Greg Wasserman, head of venture at Galaxy Digital Ventures, added. “There is a strong demand for analytics that help these companies tie off-chain activities to on-chain results and price, which is exactly what Flipside provides.”
Earlier this month, a decentralized application (DApp) analyzing startup, DappRadar, secured $2.3 million to boost its R&D and add additional services.
