Challenges

Challenges for the Crypto Industry

Comprehensive Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing regulations become increasingly important for the Crypto Industry and require the implementation of robust Transaction Monitoring.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) laws apply to regulated businesses around the world, and failure to comply with these rules lead to costly penalties and sanctions.

While these regulations are generally viewed in the scope of traditional financial institutions such as banks, they also become increasingly important for Crypto Businesses.

The latest updates to regulatory frameworks such as the EU’s AMLDs or the FATF’s “Guidance for a Risk based approach for Virtual Currencies”, require Crypto Businesses to implement robust AML and KYC processes to encourage transparency and minimize the ability of criminals to use cryptocurrency exchanges for money laundering or terrorist financing. Important parts of these new regulations are the compliance with Registration Requirements, the implementation of comprehensive Know-Your-Customer (KYC) processes and robust Transaction Monitoring.
