Otta's take

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Interest and participation in the crypto space from institutions and individuals alike has snowballed over recent years. What hasn’t kept pace, at least not yet, is the quality and accessibility of research and analysis tools. Messari has stepped in to fill that breach, providing tools and market intelligence for professionals, builders, and communities looking to confidently navigate web3.

In 2022, Messari launched a platform facilitating engagement in various crypto DAOs, just as these collectives are beginning to slide into the mainstream spotlight and gather real momentum and influence. Historically, DAOs have proven logistically or conceptually complex to engage with, so Messari is taking important steps here to democratize access.

Maintaining this pace could prove tough, but the company is investing into the rapid expansion of its engineering and research teams to stay ahead. This, bolstered by impressive investor support and a client list that already includes key players like Coinbase, BlockTower, and Gemini, should see Messari’s critical web3 work continue to make big waves.
