Chainalysis’s Jonathan Levin on building a blockchain business, values and the future

July 27th, 2021

David Cohen talks with Jonathan Levin, Chainalysis cofounder and chief strategy officer, about the unique challenges and opportunities around building a blockchain business — long before crypto went mainstream. 

Jonathan Levin has had a remarkable career. A London native with an economics degree from Oxford, Levin cofounded Chainalysis in 2014, focusing on bitcoin on the blockchain. The company, a graduate of Techstars’ Barclays accelerator in New York with a valuation in the billions, now does blockchain analysis on a variety of cryptocurrencies. 

Listen in as Jonathan tells David about what it was like to secure funding in the crypto space in the early days, the importance of living your company values, why he believes “give first” truly is so powerful and get his takes on the must-reads for every entrepreneur.
