Otta's take on Sardine

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Identity and payment fraud is one of the biggest dangers facing online businesses. Sardine is setting out to solve this problem by building the first zero-day fraud prevention technology.

Sardine was founded by an impressive combination of ex-Revolut, Coinbase, Paypal and Uber stars. These credentials have enabled the company to amass considerable funding since its launch. Sardine's technology traces intrinsic behaviour patterns to identify so-called "bad actors" online, and detects fraudsters using machine-learned fraud scores and user behavior biometrics.

Sardine calls itself the world's first FaaS (Fraud Detection as a Service), and its solutions are already drawing business from next-gen crypto and financial service institutions such as Fortress and Incode. Onboarding these institutions and scaling its customer base at pace will ensure that Sardine maintains its frontrunner position.

Total funding - $75.6m
