Crypto AML, Entity Directory, VASPs,
Scorechain Entity Directory assesses the level of risk of each identified crypto exchange by assessing their anti-money laundering (AML) and combating the financing of terrorism (CFT) policies and their exposure to jurisdiction and security risks. In this article, we will recognize safe cryptocurrency exchanges listed in our Entity Directory.
The Entity Directory rates each identified exchange to help users assess their level of AML risk. Consequently, the Entity Directory gives each entity a risk score from 1 to 100; 1 stands for high risk and 100 for low risk. Thus, users can trust entities with higher scores as they present outstanding AML/CFT policies.
Scorechain’s Entity Directory is a useful tool to assess the risk related to exchanges. The tool states whether they have implemented concrete AML/CFT policies to comply with regulations and indicates if they are subject to jurisdiction or security risks. Therefore, this tool, coupled with Scorechain Blockchain Analytics platform, enables users to have a holistic approach to crypto compliance.
