Messari is the leading provider of crypto market intelligence products that help professionals navigate crypto/Web3 with confidence. We bring transparency and smarter qualitative and quantitative analytics to the industry by combining a global research database with a comprehensive suite of data visualization and asset discovery tools. We help drive smarter participation in crypto from individuals and institutions alike.
The name “Messari” came from the Franciscan monks who declared "clean books" a moral imperative during the renaissance and pushed merchants to use proper accounting methods. This led to the flourishing of investment via "trust but verify" methods and industry growth throughout Europe. That's what we aim to do. Provide participants, investors, builders, platforms, and everyone else with reliable information to better participate in the crypto ecosystem.
Our users range from some of the most prominent analysts, investors, and crypto individuals to top organizations including Coinbase, BitGo, Anchorage, 0x, Chainanalysis, Ledger, Compound, MakerDAO, and many more.
Why We Care About Crypto
Web3 technologies empower individuals, open new markets, and reward creative solutions across a wide range of industries. Our role is to organize and contextualize crypto information at a global scale.
We keep things simple for new and existing audiences, and help make crypto safer, easier, and more accessible. It’s the best way we can help ensure crypto - and its users - win long-term.
Navigating the New Crypto Frontier
Our mission is to create market intelligence offerings that bring transparency to the crypto economy and help stakeholders make more informed decisions around which assets and protocols they invest in, support, and participate in for the long-term.
Our products power workflows and informed decision-making for the enterprises that bring crypto to the masses: the token teams building the decentralized future, the infrastructure companies building the on-ramps to the asset class, and the investors fueling the movement.
Our Core Values
We believe in free people, big thinking, and open markets. Our culture reflects our faith in the power of passionate individuals who rally around a shared big vision. We foster employee autonomy, communicate excellently with each other, and invest aggressively in top performers.
Crypto Obsessed: We believe in crypto. We are thoughtful, long-term builders who pick our partners carefully, and focus on customers who share our values, or are open-minded to the potential of crypto as a force for good.
Growth Oriented: We constantly seek opportunities to level up as individuals and as a team. We are constantly learning, reflecting, and pushing limits for ourselves and each other. We reward high integrity, high performers consistently and invest in them aggressively.
Inclusive: We celebrate newcomers with diverse views because they help us make new connections, unlock new ideas, and steelman our assumptions. We are empathetic, patient, and kind. We listen well, and incorporate smart feedback quickly.
Collaborative: We communicate excellently with each other, and avoid silos. We have each other’s backs and pick up slack for teammates when they need help. We solicit feedback from partners and customers which informs direction.
Relentlessly Focused: We’re clear on mission, vision, and strategy. We set challenging goals, think big, and deliver results daily, weekly, quarterly, and yearly. We stay on task, on message, and avoid shiny objects and short-term wins.
High Conviction, but Open Minded: We are insanely curious. We’re reinventing money, finance, and the internet itself, so we know even “fads” and “toys” can become meaningful innovations. We process new information quickly and confidently update our theses accordingly.
Fast: We have a strong view of the crypto-centered future for which we are relentlessly building creative solutions, but we also search for ways to simplify and streamline, so we can adapt quickly. We take risks when they can help us or our customers move faster.
Energized and High Integrity: We have fun, we recharge when needed, and we invest in an environment that keeps our teammates happy, excited, and motivated. We’re dedicated to each other’s success and recognize the responsibilities that come with being industry leaders.
Authentic: We’re not afraid to develop our unique voices, to be independent, or to challenge the status quo. We constantly work to become our best selves. We hold each other accountable, and stay positive and mission focused.
