What is it?
Blockchain technology is now being called the “next evolution” of computing by many experts, with new companies looking to the blockchain to solve problems across a wide spectrum of uses and industries.
We think blockchain could be the answer to increasingly tough anti-money laundering (AML) statutes and enterprise risk management requirements with its distributed ledger technology and transparency. The benefits of blockchain include security, encryption, immutability, real-time information, and a trusted repository for identification purposes.
What are our Blockchain/Cryptocurrencies services?
Mitigate your platform’s money laundering and terrorist financing risks and increase your capacity to meet regulatory expectations for reliable programs and controls.
We can deliver top-notch strategies to ensure the right risk-based approach on the blockchain with the following:

Assessment of full compliance with AML policies and procedures, addressing applicable regulatory requirements for the blockchain & cryptocurrencies
Money Service Business (MSB) Risk Assessments evaluating all risk factors involved with scoring/rating of each component
