SAN FRANCISCO, March 12, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Silicon Valley based blockchain intelligence provider AnChain.AI today announced its partnership with Paretone Capital, a premier OTC trading desk and hedge fund with over $2 billion in annual trading volume, in order to reinforce their cryptocurrency AML/KYC regulatory compliance and infrastructure, and bring greater security and transparency to the digital asset economy.
“After an extensive review, our team selected AnChain.AI from among a number of leading blockchain intelligence vendors,” said Paretone Capital Founder & CEO Vincent Wang of the partnership. “The AnChain.AI team has helped us enhance our AML and compliance programs, ensuring our blockchain assets and over $2B in annual OTC trading volume is secure, and giving us greater peace of mind. It was a pleasure to work with AnChain.AI’s team to create a more secure and transparent cryptocurrency world that everyone can safely enjoy.”
Following its recent meteoric rise, the cryptocurrency industry has seen a proportionate emergence of new regulatory challenges. In 2020, over $10.5 Billion in cryptocurrency was stolen by illicit actors, with $8 Billion more circulating in the black market, mixer, tumbler, DeFi, DEX, NFT and more.
Such rapid growth has spurred regulators to action, with government bodies like FinCEN and OFAC introducing new regulations in 2021, and cracking down on VASPs lacking adequate AML/CFT programs, even for transactions nearly a decade old. Just last month in February 2021, payment provider Bitpay settled over $500,000 in OFAC charges for illicit transactions on their platform from as far back as 2012, and faced a maximum fine of over $600 million.
AnChain.AI is enhancing the cryptocurrency AML and security infrastructure of industry leaders including FalconX and Amber Group, securing billions of dollars in transactions. AnChain.AI’s groundbreaking CISO forensics platform is simplifying AML/CFT regulatory compliance, equipping users with comprehensive, AI-powered ecosystem intelligence, one-click auto-trace money flow investigation, and fund origin tracing to ensure a fast, secure trading experience.
Said AnChain.AI CEO & Co-Founder Victor Fang, Ph.D., of the partnership. “The cryptocurrency finance space is experiencing unprecedented growth and creating a complicated compliance landscape. Thankfully, leading financial service vendors are taking preventive action, enhancing their regulatory compliance stances. We’re proud to be selected by leading firms like Paretone Capital, who take a proactive approach to Anti Money Laundering regulatory compliance and infrastructure security, ensuring a bright future for the trillion dollar digital asset economy.”
AnChain.AI is proud to partner with companies committed to building a more secure crypto future. We recommend all VASP vendors thoroughly evaluate the three pillars of blockchain security: infrastructure, code, and transactions.
