About Elliptic

Cryptoassets are fast becoming part of the mainstream financial ecosystem and are providing the foundation for a new, decentralised financial system.

Elliptic is driving development and innovation in cryptoasset, helping crypto businesses and financial institutions to grow, and offering protection as new blockchains emerge and regulations evolve.

Elliptic monitors 98% of all cryptoasset trading volume, screens more than $1bn of transactions each week and has collected more than 100 billion cryptoasset data points.

Having worked for regulated financial institutions, Elliptic’s founders understood the cryptoasset industry would have to operate within financial crime regulatory frameworks to reach its full potential.

This led to the creation of the world’s first compliance tools based on blockchain analytics, in 2015.

Today, Elliptic provides: crypto investigations, wallet screenings, asset coverage, transaction monitoring, holistic screening through the entire crypto ecosystem, and nuanced, risk-based virtual asset service provider screening.

About graze

Convenience is at the forefront of Graze – the snack delivery business conceived by Graham, a founder of LoveFilm.

Like the DVD delivery service, Graze allows customers to order products online, where they can tailor their preferences and rate products to personalise the boxes they receive by post.

They can choose a subscription box, snooze their box if they’re going on holiday and stock up on favourite items.

The unique offering, smart marketing and obsessive commitment to customer satisfaction have led to millions of healthy eating customers.

The Graze team believes the healthy choice shouldn't mean compromising on taste. It’s rewriting the snacking rulebook for healthy people who care about the planet.

They've been pushing the boundaries of snacking, looking for bigger and better ways to graze since starting out in 2008. In the early days, they sent fresh fruit through the post – something that had never been done before.

Ever since, the company has listened to customers and used the best ingredients they can find to create delicious snacks people can feel great about eating.
