Chainalysis to Expand Transaction Monitoring Tool

Chainalysis AML software KYT now monitors 4 additional tokens in real-time: BNB, GUSD, USDT and USDC
25 April 2019   53

Analytical blockchain-startup Chainalysis reported that starting today, the proposed transaction tracking tool Chainalysis KYT (Know Your Transaction) supports four additional coins. Their number includes the internal token of the Binance BNB exchange, as well as the Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Tether (USDT) and USD Coin (USDC).

Thus, the anti-money laundering software Chainalysis supports 10 cryptocurrency assets. Prior to that, Chainalysis KYT allowed to track Bitcoin transactions, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, TrueUSD and Paxos Standard.

As CoinDesk notes, support for new assets has been added pending the publication of new guidelines for the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF).

Chainalysis is prepared to equip businesses with automated transaction monitoring for currencies beyond bitcoin. We expect that the launch of these multiple currency capabilities will help shape FATF guidance on the sector and help move away from technically infeasible solutions to more pragmatic recommendations.

Co-founder and chief operating officer, Chainalysis

According to him, Chainalysis recently upgraded its technology, making it more scalable. Thanks to this, in the future it will be easier for it to add support for other new assets.
