BTI began among associates who wanted to make a difference by cleaning up the space, as we became frustrated by the lack of progress in this area from leaders in the space. Adding to this, most media coverages gave blockchain a poor reputation, with reports of manipulation, scams, or hacks coming out every other week.

Our team initially started with 4 core members with skills ranging from data science to high-frequency trading and web analytics. We have grown to over 12 contributors who helped shape our reports with their experience and inside industry knowledge. Our advisors include ethical market makers, high-frequency traders, trade surveillance consultants, and retired C-level executives.


In the project’s development, including the new data site, BTI has been 100% funded by our original 4 founders and the proceeds from full exchange reports from token projects. We have not taken any funding from investors and have spent countless nights and weekends since our first report in August 2018 building out this project to what it is today.

All funds received from providing wash trade detection services, exchange reports for token projects, and from our Clean API will be cycled into future projects to promote the space in the best possible light and further adoption.

If you have a passion for promoting blockchain and want to join our staff as either a writer or researcher, please reach out to us as we have big plans for promoting the space in 2019.
