Elliptic

We identify illicit activity on the Bitcoin blockchain and provide actionable intelligence to financial institutions and law enforcement agencies.

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.

“[Elliptic] will be a huge benefit to Bitcoin-related businesses attempting to decrease risk factors.” - The Telegraph
