🌟 Team and Role
At Merkle Science, we are creating the infrastructure necessary to ensure the safe and healthy growth of the industry, supporting the transition as cryptocurrencies consolidate with the $22 trillion financial services market. Merkle Science envisions a world powered by crypto. We are the architects enabling crypto companies — trailblazers and disruptors who are pushing the boundaries of innovation — to scale and mature so that a full range of individuals, entities, and services may transact with crypto safely. We are located across the globe with offices in Singapore, London, Bangalore and New York (upcoming). Merkle Science was founded in early 2019. Today we boast of over 60 customers, and we are just getting started.
⚡️ What does the Product do?
We boast of the best user experience amongst our peers and unmatched customisability. On a high level, we have two products. One is an investigation tool that helps the user track the flow of funds once a scam or a hack occurs. Intelligence wings and government bodies mostly use this product. The other product is a compliance tool that ensures that we can help crypto companies, financial institutions, regulators, and banks monitor the kind of funds flowing and stop the bad players from using crypto to do something wrong, such as transactions over dark net or fraud. We also provide intelligence services and reports. Did we mention that we are working on some super innovative and bold products that we cannot share details about here?
