Why Work with Us
We are a tight-nit team of blockchain industry veterans solving one of the largest problems facing the mass adoption of crypto: transaction security. Despite being a year old, we have already integrated into Phantom, the leading wallet on Solana with millions of users as well as many other wallets across the Solana & EVM ecosystems. We are scanning millions of transactions each week for malware and scams and are helping keep their users safe. Transaction security is a high leverage way to make a difference in the world — protecting users funds and enabling them to give informed consent when entering digital agreements involving their finances and other ownership rights.
