It should be noted that Coinbase Analytics is not a publicly recognized offering. However, the term appeared on a list of jobs, already removed.

DEA Interested in Coinbase Software Accuracy

The document adds that in the case of the IRS, Blockchain surveillance software would be used by the Cybercrime Criminal Investigation Unit. For this end “I know requires a software tool that can assist in tracing various types of crypto, not just Bitcoin

This implies that Coinbase Analytics has qualities that are not currently found in other tools on the market.

Likewise, Neutrino, a Blockchain monitoring company that Coinbase bought last year, is mentioned in the contract. It states that “Allows monitoring of cryptocurrency flows through multiple Blockchains currently used by criminals

The IRS also specifies that the contract execution period is one base year from the award date, with a 12-month option.

Both companies are seeking yearlong contracts, and while it is unclear how much Coinbase would be paid for Blockchain surveillance software, the DEA deal does not exceed $ 250k.
That figure was indicated in a subtitle of the document, mentioning that the value is more than US $ 10,000 but not more than US $ 250,000.

Coinbase seeks to benefit from the federal field with its new software, joining a crowded field of Blockchain surveillance companies such as Chainalysis, Elliptic, CipherTrace, among others. Although these contracts indicate that Coinbase appears to be on the way to weakening competition.
