Since early 2013, TradeBlock (formerly The Genesis Block) has been committed to providing market-leading insight into all aspects of digital currency – from economic trends to technical and regulatory analysis. Over the last year, TradeBlock has grown from an informal and periodic bitcoin blog into a full-scale data and analytics firm serving many of the industries leading traders and companies.

This morning, TradeBlock announced the close of a $2.8M funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from a variety of investors drawing from backgrounds in institutional finance, big data technology, and digital currency (you can see the full list of investors here). The proceeds from the round will be used to expand our team, as well as the reach of our institutionally-focused data and research products.

We envision a world empowered by the vast potential of block chain technologies, reaching far beyond just currencies. As increasing volumes and asset classes are transferred through this revolutionary protocol, TradeBlock will be there to help navigate and analyze the vast array of new markets set to arise.

If you’re enthralled by digital currency technology and the analytical opportunities it creates,  we’re always on the lookout for smart and motivated team members.
