Back in 2014, Pascal Gauthier, current CEO at Ledger, founded Kaiko with a single mission: to provide data for crypto markets participants. Kaiko shares its name with the submarine probe that traveled to the deepest point of the Marianna Trenches, bringing to the surface troves of data that influenced research for years.
