BLOCKCHAIN DATA SCIENTIST AT GLASSNODE

At Glassnode we are bringing data intelligence to the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. Glassnode builds applications that provide new ways of delivering insights into blockchains and cryptocurrencies by focusing on the most important input source in the space: data from the blockchains themselves.

With an emphasis on user-centric interfaces, we aim at delivering intelligible, actionable and unique insights from blockchain data and beyond, helping investors to make educated decisions in an overly emotional and irrational market, as well as equipping blockchain teams with valuable insights on their projects and tokens.

We’re an ambitious team of researchers, builders and entrepreneurs with many years of experience in the crypto space and passionate about digital currencies.
