Blockchain forensics firm Coinalytics Rebrands as Skry

Announcements | April 15, 2016 By:

Coinalytics announced that it is rebranding to Skry. The company also announced the addition of two experienced technologists in Big Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to its leadership team.

As the new CTO, the company has hired Akash Singh, former CTO Data Science at Huawei and Chief Researcher/Architect at IBM. For Chief Data Scientist, Skry has picked up Masoud Nikravesh, a researcher with over 25 years of experience in the field of Artificial Intelligence as former Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Director at CITRIS, UC Berkeley and Visiting Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.

“The company itself wants to move beyond bitcoin, so sending out that clear message was important. But in order to do so, and to make it applicable to any blockchain, we needed that expertise to go from a bitcoin analytics application to a blockchain analytics platform,” said Skry co-founder and CEO Fabio Federici.

Skry is a blockchain business intelligence firm.
