BlockchainIntel believes that blockchains are a big part of the future. We also believe blockchains enable financial freedom and governance unparalleled in traditional systems. In order for blockchains to flourish, it’s important to trust the person or machine you’re interacting with in a network and detect criminal abuse of the technology. BlockchainIntel provides evidence you need to trust the entity with whom you are transacting or exchanging confidential information.

The Risk Score API provides a risk score for each entity, address and/or transaction. The score is based on known social media profiles and blockchain activity such as geographic location, fraud, and interactions with exchanges, mining pools, Darknet or other sites. For devices, the score is also based on data coming from the device itself and other industry data.
BlockchainIntel enables clients to customize the existing risk scoring methodology based on requirements. BlockchainIntel provides use case workshops, architecture reviews and application development as needed.
BlockchainIntel provides reports for one more addresses or transactions, in batch or real-time. See “Explore Crypto Scoring” for an example of scoring for a single cryptocurrency address. Examples of scoring for other blockchains can be supplied upon request.
Risk score testing will be performed in a test environment to ensure quality of scoring in production.
