Analytics Service Aims to Be ‘Gold Standard’ of Bitcoin Data / Grace Caffyn (@GCaffyn) / July 23, 2015 at 15:04 BST

A new service is launching its invite-only beta this week with the promise of delivering the “gold standard” for bitcoin data.

Challenger Deep is a platform aiming to make the bitcoin ecosystem easy to navigate for non-technical users, including investors, traders and consumers.

Entrepreneur and ad-tech veteran Pascal Gauthier, who is self-funding Challenger Deep with around $2m, said he saw a gap in the market for a one-stop service:

“You could find some data on the blockchain, on miners, on exchanges, but all separately. Nowhere could you find a comprehensive source for bitcoin data with a website to consult and an API to extract data should you need it.”
