DAM and Coinfirm Partner to Combat Financial Crime on the Blockchain

19/03/2019

Digital Asset Management Limited (“DAM”) have entered into a working partnership with Coinfirm to fight financial crime on the blockchain.

Since the Company’s incorporation, DAM have integrated processes and policies to identify and combat financial crimes concerning Digital Assets, including virtual currencies. The firm, now regulated to provide broker / dealer and custody services relating to Digital Assets on distributed ledger technology, has applied customer and source of fund due diligence measures since 2017. Coinfirm’s tools have since formed part of a suite of processes, controls and tools for DAM to combat financial crime. This has also resulted in DAM’s anti-money laundering (‘AML’) process being certified by Coinfirm.

Within an industry where only approximately 26% of exchanges are regulated, DAM is proud to work with Coinfirm to improve practices on combatting financial crime.

Coinfirm is a leading RegTech Company that provides technology for regulatory compliance, bringing new levels of transparency and trust to the world of digital assets. Coinfirm’s anti-money laundering solutions include the ability to analyse transaction patterns on top 10 public blockchains including Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum or NEO. The solution uses more than 270+ risk indicators and profiles, 150+ advanced evaluation algorithms, which includes behavioural analysis and machine learning techniques, to be able to identify red flags and risks such as sanctioned wallet addresses, dark net activity and ‘mixer’ transactional behaviour.

DAM’s CEO and Co-founder commented

We have long been supporters and evangelists of the solutions that Coinfirm offers in respect of combatting financial crime and overall risk. As part of our business’ processes and controls, Coinfirm’s solutions have formed part of our firms overall efforts to combat financial crime in the Digital Assets industry from the very beginning. Coinfirm’s ability to identify key actionable information in a sea of data is impressive and industry leading. This is particularly the case as more entities will be required to carry out customer due diligence measures on transactions relating to virtual currencies following the introduction of the EU’s 5th Money Laundering Directive.

Our clients and other industry players turn to us for information on best practices and we have always been happy to recommend the ability of the team and solutions at Coinfirm over the past couple of years.
