Executive Opinion

Ryan Selkis, Messari's co-founder & CEO, said, "We are proud to partner with an exceptional syndicate of new and existing investors that will help usher in Messari's next phase of growth. Thousands of investors, crypto enterprises, and token projects already rely on our products and services to conduct industry diligence and participate in the emerging crypto economy. This new funding reinforces the value we have created for our early crypto-native customers and highlights the opportunity we have to solve some of crypto's most challenging information and compliance problems for new institutional entrants as well."

Adam Carson, an operating partner at Point72 Ventures, said, "While investor participation in the crypto industry has grown exponentially over the past three years, current crypto research and analysis tools are still lacking the sophisticated signals and data that more advanced investors need. Messari is filling that much-needed space, creating a central access point for reliable information for the entire crypto ecosystem."
