Arkham on Linea: Simplifying Blockchain Knowledge

Knowledge is Power

The age-old saying “knowledge is power” holds true, especially in the rapidly innovating industry of decentralized finance (DeFi). The open nature of blockchains presents both huge opportunities and catastrophic risks. Having a clear picture of on-chain activity is crucial.

Blockchains may be transparent, but making sense of all those transactions requires expertise. As much of the activity on-chain is financial, having clear visibility into the actions of wallet-controlling entities (individuals, large holders or “whales”, and even VC firms) can be a valuable source of information or protection.

Historically, the Ethereum community has benefited from the white-hat work of renowned sleuths like @ZachXBT, who have helped many protect themselves and recover their funds. However, this does little to help the average, non-technical user who also deserves accessible information about on-chain activity.

This is where Arkham Intelligence comes in. It is a revolutionary platform that makes it easy to get intelligence on the addresses, entities, or assets that are the most important to you. We’re excited to announce they now offer full support and visibility on Linea. Now, it’s easier than ever to run your analytics, spin up dashboards, or set alerts based on key information.

Arkham’s Journey to Innovation

The development of Arkham Intelligence was driven by the clear need to enhance transparency within the DeFi ecosystem. Recognizing the complexity and opaqueness of blockchain transactions, the Arkham team created a platform to simplify these processes. The platform facilitates transaction tracking, portfolio management, and entity identification, catering to the needs of both novice and experienced users.

A significant hurdle in Arkham Intelligence's development was ensuring the platform could adapt to the rapidly evolving landscape of blockchain technology and DeFi applications. To this end, Arkham introduced proprietary AI technology, Ultra, which synthesizes on-chain and off-chain data and offers real-time analytics. Ultra sets a new standard for accuracy and reliability in DeFi intelligence.

Collaboration played a pivotal role in refining Arkham Intelligence's offerings. By partnering with key players in the DeFi ecosystem, Arkham broadened its data spectrum, enhancing the depth and accuracy of its analytics. These partnerships also provided critical feedback, helping to identify the most valuable features for users and prioritizing development efforts accordingly. As a result, Arkham Intelligence is live on 11 networks (including BTC) and is a tool that serves its users' needs by providing clear and actionable insights.
