Arkham Intelligence is a blockchain data analytics platform that recently started a huge debate on Twitter due to its Intel-to-Earn model, which pays users to deanonymize blockchain wallets. There are also discussions on whether Arkham collects off-chain data on its users, and whether Arkham is actually a government project used to spy on crypto users.

Today, we have Miguel Morel, CEO of Arkham on the show where we asked him:

  • Info that will be allowed on Arkham’s marketplace

  • Will Arkham work with government agencies

  • Does Arkham collect non-public data of users

Host: Jason Choi @mrjasonchoi . Not financial advice.
