Sardine Launches ‘Insights’ to Manage Risk Between Financial Institutions, Fintechs, and Crypto Companies

PR Newswire

“Sardine, the leading provider of fraud, compliance, and instant payment solutions, announced today a new product offering a real-time, comprehensive view of an entity’s risk based on its history transacting with cryptocurrencies, digital assets, and conventional bank products and services. Called Insights, the service aims to bridge data gaps between financial institutions, fintechs, and crypto companies to strengthen risk management and increase access to all segments of financial services.   The number of US adults who own crypto assets will surge to 34 million this year. As more consumers, businesses, and other entities use blockchain-based services, there is a growing demand to move money between traditional finance (TradFi) and decentralized finance (DeFI). However, these two systems remain siloed with limited exchange of risk-related information, enabling fraudsters to exploit significant visibility gaps.”

Sardine Raises $51.5M Series B Led by Andreessen Horowitz


“As a leading provider of fraud, compliance, and instant settlement solutions, Sardine announced today $51.5M in Series B financing to accelerate product development as well as marketing and sales across the globe. Andreessen Horowitz’s Growth Fund led the round with participation from new and existing investors, including XYZ, Nyca Partners, Sound Ventures, Activant Capital, Visa, Google Ventures, Eric Schmidt, Vikram Pandit, The General Partnership, NAventures, ING Ventures, ConsenSys, Cross River Digital Ventures, Alloy Labs, and Uniswap Labs Ventures…“Faster payments means faster fraud. As Zelle, RTP and FedNow become increasingly popular, consumers are increasingly vulnerable to social engineering attacks where they are convinced to buy something that never arrives or invest in a scam,” said Soups Ranjan, CEO of Sardine. “Secondly, Financial Institutions only know that their customers bought ETH or USDC, not what they do with it afterwards. What is needed is a new way of looking at fraud prevention, one which deeply inspects user behavior at the time of purchase, and combines it with what happens to the funds downstream. That’s exactly what we built at Sardine.””
