Crypto AML, Partners, stablecoin,
Scorechain, the leading crypto AML compliance solution provider, announces collaboration with Lugh, a subsidiary of Groupe Casino and issuer of the EURL stablecoin.
Lugh, regulated and registered as DASP (PSAN) in France, is the issuer of the EURL stablecoin. Live on Ethereum and Tezos blockchains, EURL is a Euro-pegged stablecoin. Backed by full reserves in fiat held by Société Générale and audited by Deloitte, EURL is a reliable and transparent asset.
Lugh chose Scorechain as its trusted partner for its compulsory transaction monitoring activities. The company will use Scorechain’s blockchain analytics tools to check their EURL transactions at the issuance and redeem stage against high-risk activities, including money laundering and terrorism financing. This helps Lugh to fully comply with the regulator while building a trustworthy environment for the stablecoin.
Pierre Fougeat from Lugh comments: “Security and risk management around our stablecoin is our top priority, and we are delighted to collaborate with Scorechain, whose tools and expertise are unanimously recognized. ”
Money laundering and terrorism financing risks can stem from crypto-assets, including stabelcoins. With the rapid expansion of stablecoins in the crypto industry, it is therefore essential for issuers to ensure compliance with AML/CFT requirements, thus sustaining a safe adoption of such assets.
Scorechain has provided top blockchain analytics and crypto compliance solutions to over 200 companies worldwide for an efficient implementation of crypto AML/CFT policies. The solution includes blockchain identifying information, automatic red flag indicators, unique and powerful risk scoring system, and sanction screening tools across a wide range of blockchains, tokens, and stablecoins.
Pierre Gérard, Scorechain’s CEO, adds: “We are very glad to participate in the development of the EURL by bringing the technical layer into the regulatory process. The EURL stablecoin is a very important piece that should facilitate the adoption of crypto assets.”
