Know Your Transaction
Binance’s CFO, Wei Zhou hopes this move taken by them would ‘inspire’ the crypto exchanges around the world to consider the Anti-money Laundering and anti-terrorism seriously. With this partnership Chainalysis, the leading investigation software provider would provide a “Know Your Transaction” compliance software to Binance, world’s biggest exchange.
The ultimate goal of our partnership with Chainalysis is to create an environment in blockchain where everyone feels safe. We believe the fight against money laundering to be collaborative and proactive.
Binance has been an outstanding firm, leading by example setting up charities and being an exchange to look up to. It has also hired compliance professionals and invested in KYC and AML compliance. Moreover, the CFO said,
Criminals are always looking to loopholes in the system. So we are continuously on the lookout for new technologies and methods. Basically, to combat money laundering and malicious actors.
Chainalysis works by using a mixture of pattern recognition, different open source, proprietary algorithms to process crypto services and transactions. If any suspicious activity is noticed, the transaction will be flagged by the software. Apart from this, the tool can also help the KYC process as well as the AML compliance process. Moreover, Co-Founder of Chainalysis, Jonathan Levin says
The participants in the crypto-space must develop greater trust in the data and technology. That must underly our ecosystem in order for them to advance as a group.
