FinchTrade AG (FinchTrade), a regulated institutional-grade OTC digital asset liquidity provider, onboards with Scorechain SA (Scorechain), top blockchain analytics services provider, to ensure safe crypto transactions in compliance with regulations.
Evolving regulatory status of crypto assets worldwide
Compliance has now become essential for virtual asset service providers (VASPs). They are now required by law to implement comprehensive anti-money laundering and combatting the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) policies.
Indeed, as blockchain technology and crypto markets have largely developed, transactions involving this new class of assets have been skyrocketing. But, even if the vast majority of crypto transactions are totally licit, criminals can use crypto-assets for illicit activities such as thefts, hacks, money laundering, etc. The decentralized characteristic of crypto-assets seems to be a favorable condition for criminals to easily transact ill-gotten funds with enhanced anonymity. As a result, worldwide jurisdictions have started to regulate the space with AML/CFT frameworks to prevent this new class of assets from being used for illicit finance activities.
How can FinchTrade leverage Scorechain to ensure crypto compliance?
FinchTrade, a regulated Swiss-based FinTech providing institutional-grade OTC digital asset liquidity, has onboarded Scorechain’s blockchain analytics and crypto compliance solution to fully satisfy AML/CFT obligations required by the local regulator. FinchTrade chose Scorechain to accompany them in their AML/CFT policies implementation thanks to the high-quality and user-friendly tools, smooth onboarding process, and attentive support provided by the company.
The company will be able to leverage Scorechain’s powerful tools and data to conduct KYT (know-your-transaction) checks for in-depth monitoring of their transactions and risk assessment regarding potential links with financial crimes, sanctions, or illegal activities. Transactions will be traced and screened in real time. By using the solution, the FinchTrade team will be able to get insights into every transaction, analyze transactional patterns and understand transactions’ level of risk for a seamless risk assessment of fraud.
