KuCoin, crypto exchange, today announced that it has partnered with Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, deepening its commitment to compliance and security and jointly promoting compliance-first business practices in the crypto industry.
KuCoin will use Chainalysis KYT (Know-Your-Transaction) software to detect and prevent money laundering and illicit activity in real-time and Chainalysis Reactor to conduct further investigations into suspicious activity.
“We teamed up with Chainalysis to create a safe and compliant trading environment. Through KuCoin’s efforts, the crypto world will combat illegal activities, such as laundering money and financing terrorism,”
“Although KuCoin has already deployed in this aspect, we hope to further strengthen our technical expansion into compliance with our cooperation with Chainalysis. Not only does it provide infrastructure to the blockchain ecosystem, but it also meets regulatory compliance requirements across different countries and regions.”

“Our relationship with KuCoin is also an example of our continued commitment to working with leading exchanges in the Asia Pacific region, an important hub of cryptocurrency activity.”
