AnChain.AI Partners with Law & Forensics to Advance Mainstream Adoption of Cryptocurrency
AnChain.AI, the leading blockchain forensics and intelligence provider, announced its partnership with Law & Forensics, a global legal engineering firm empowering clients around the globe with tailored Cybersecurity, Cyber-warfare, eDiscovery, Forensics, and Privacy solutions. In entering this partnership, the firms strive to advance the compliance posture of cryptocurrency towards mainstream banking and finance, delivering comprehensive, AI-powered investigation services, forensics support, and AML/CFT education to meet both domestic and global regulatory standards.
In the wake of Fall 2020’s cryptocurrency surge, including the high-profile entry of Paypal into the crypto-services industry, the virtual asset economy faces a commensurately dramatic rise in policy-making and regulatory scrutiny. Between the looming FATF recommendations of June 2019, OFAC’s crackdown on ransomware payments to sanctioned states or individuals, and FinCEN’s groundbreaking leveling of $60 million in civil penalties against now-defunct Bitcoin mixer service Helix, crypto-regulation is postured to undergo drastic changes in the coming months.
