Wei Zhou, CFO at Binance added,
“By working with Chainalysis, we are able to continue building a foundational compliance program that enables the next phase of our growth.Our vision is to provide the infrastructure for a blockchain ecosystem and increase the freedom of money globally, while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we serve.”
In April 2018, Chainalysis secured a $16 million funding led by Benchmark to deploy Chainalysis KYT and expand its coverage of cryptocurrencies. The company currently serves 150 cryptocurrency businesses with their analytical solutions.
