Binance--the leading global cryptocurrency exchange and blockchain ecosystem--and Coinfirm--an international regulation technology company--announced their partnership to address the recently issued guidelines on anti-money laundering (AML) rules by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
Binance will integrate Coinfirm’s blockchain-agnostic AML Platform to its cryptocurrency exchange servicing users in over 180 countries and regions for ensuring secure trading for its customers and compliance with the FATF’s guidelines to cryptocurrency exchanges around the world. Coinfirm’s real-time risk score analysis, alerts, and investigations system, built on blockchain agnostic platform will help Binance thwart money laundering attempts and allow the exchange to take quickly informed decisions on transactions to better protect the crypto economy as a whole.
“We’re excited to be working with an industry leader like Binance to boost its AML and risk analysis capabilities with our proprietary technology and widest blockchain coverage,” said Pawel Kuskowski, Co-Founder and CEO of Coinfirm. “Coinfirm and Binance have mutual values in ensuring trust and security for cryptocurrencies and we are confident in bringing that to the market together. With Binance’s focus on providing the best user experience while attaining the highest AML and security standards, this partnership marks another step forward in their leadership in the market.”
Coinfirm’s AML and blockchain analytics solution will enhance Binance’s internal AML and risk analysis processes, aiming to set forth a robust framework for cryptocurrencies to be even further adoptable within mass markets globally.
“With new and more expansive AML and regulatory standards being put in place across the globe and governmental bodies such as the FATF placing new rules on the market in order to ensure sustainable growth of the market, we are looking forward to our collaboration with Coinfirm,” said Samuel Lim, Chief Compliance Officer. “We trust that Coinfirm and its leading solutions will help us and the industry evolve in a fast-changing and developing market while allowing for comprehensive and institutional growth in a compliant and safe manner.”
