HackCU was started four years ago by a group of students who wanted to provide other students the time and space to work on projects they don’t normally work on through school. Anyone who has an interest in technology can attend a hackathon to learn, build and share their creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

HackCU Episode IV will be held in University of Colorado Boulder on February 24 and 25, 2018.

Binance announced an agreement with IdentityMind, which will help it ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and improve data security.

IdentityMind provides cryptocurrency exchanges with access to the platform, thanks to which they can monitor compliance with customer identification and anti-money laundering requirements in real time. This includes connecting new customers, managing their profiles and monitoring transactions.

The partnership between Binance and IdentityMind further strengthens our compliance capabilities and our commitment to re-invest in the blockchain ecosystem and grow it. We continue to evolve and enhance security systems while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we operate in. The goal is to foster greater trust among financial institutions worldwide.

Samuel Lim

Chief Compliance Officer, Binance

Last year, Bloomberg wrote about the Binance user identification system as the least strict in the entire industry, and linked the “level of anonymity” provided by the exchange with the risks of money laundering and market manipulation.

In October, Binance entered into an agreement with a supplier of transaction analysis software on the blockchains Chainalysis, and in November with Refinitiv, which developed an automated solution for client verification.

Whether the ordinary users of the platform will feel the impact of the integration of IdentityMind tools on themselves, the exchange does not specify.
