Ignite Engages Coinfirm to Boost AML Compliance During ICO

Coinfirm

London, UK., 17th JanuaryIgnite is pleased to announce its engagement with Coinfirm and its AML/CTF Platform. Coinfirm will ensure that Ignite will stay fully compliant with AML regulation during its ICO commencing at 18:00 UTC on 15th January.

Who are Coinfirm?


Coinfirm is a leading regulatory technology company with an objective to secure the safe adoption and use of blockchain by deploying the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform.

Coinfirm’s platform helps ICOs to streamline and automate compliance processes and aims to be the global standard for AML enabling a high level of transparency for cryptocurrency and blockchain based transactions.

How will the Coinfirm Platform work for Ignite?


Coinfirm’s AML platform makes it possible to easily identify funds from risky or illegal sources and assess risks connected to dealing with contributing wallet addresses (serving BTC, ETH and Dash).

The platform uses approximately 200 proprietary algorithms and big data analysis to provide actionable data on contributing wallet addresses. Coinfirm’s technology has the ability to farm data from the blockchain, clearnet, deep web, and data leaks (to name a few sources).  Ignite has integrated with Coinfirm so that we will have streamlined access to reports and risk scores for all of our contributor’s wallets.

The risk reports prepared in real time by Coinfirm will give a risk score on each wallet ranging between 0-99, and will reflect the risk level of money laundering, fraud, or other compliance risks. A higher score will reflect a higher risk with a particular wallet. Coinfirm will then provide Ignite with further data such as behavioral profile, financial characteristics, and over 100 risk indicators.

Ignite will use this valuable data to block and refund transactions on those wallets marked as “high risk”. For those around the high risk mark, Ignite will undertake a greater degree of analysis on the wallet addresses, in some cases requesting further due diligence to be completed by the contributor. A final call on transacting with those addresses will be made depending on the outcome of the further due diligence completed.

Ignite’s legal team will be monitoring Coinfirm’s real time reports for the duration of the ICO and will take action in the best interests of preventing our platform from being utilised for money laundering purposes.

We look forward to working together with Coinfirm and furthering its mission to make the blockchain and crypto world a safer space.

Ignite’s ICO commences at 18:00 UTC on 15th January https://igniteratings.com/.

Coinfirm is currently in the middle of their own crowdsale for AMLT. More information can be found here https://amlt.coinfirm.io/.

Validate Ethereum addressess online easily

Ethereum addresses implement a checksum scheme to ensure that people transferring addresses to each do not mistype them. As the writing of this, not all wallets or tools support address validation. In the case of a bad user input, it is possible that ethers or tokens get to send to an impossible address without any recovery options.

TokenMarket has released a simple online tool that allows to validate Ethereum addresses easily.

Ethereum address validation tool

Please note that the tool only checks if the Ethereum address is correctly typed. We do not check that the receiver has a private key for this address.

People who might find this tool useful include

  • Bounty program managers that collect addresses from users that submit them in free format (no validation)

  • Other people who deal with heterogeneous Ethereum address input data

STK Token Generation Event Sells Out, Public Sale Replaced With Community Airdrop

STK
 

GI, Gibraltar, January 3, 2018.STK has closed its Token Generation Event after successfully reaching its hard cap of $17MM more than a month prior to its scheduled public sale.

After adjusting private and pre-sale contribution allocations for the recent increase in ETH, the pool of remaining tokens was too small to host an equitable public sale, based on projected demand from the STK community now more than 20,000 strong.  

Instead, STK completed the sale with private and pre-sale contributors, and will issue an airdrop of tokens to eligible community members in January, 2018.

“The overwhelming response to our Token Generation Event validates the demand for cryptocurrency payments at point of sale,” said Nicolas Dinh, spokesperson for STK.

“We’ve built an incredible community of advocates who will be among the first to hold STK tokens through our airdrop as a show of gratitude for their ongoing support.”

The public sale launch, scheduled for January 31 will now serve as the airdrop date during which up to 1,250,000 STK tokens will be provided to eligible community members who were subscribed to any of STK’s social channels by 5:00 p.m. UTC on December 29, 2017.

Funds raised from the Token Generation Event will support an aggressive development and execution timeline, aiming for the first instance of cryptocurrency payments at point of sale in Canada later this year.

“STK token holders will benefit from an accelerated development timeline as we onboard new development resources more than a month ahead of schedule. We’re confident we’ll be the first mass-market solution for instant cryptocurrency payments in North America.” said Dinh.

Democratizing Finance: Regtech Leader Coinfirm Beats Presale Goal for AMLT Token and Announces Public Sale Date

AMLT Coinfirm

The Blockchain regtech company announces a December 12th start date for public sale of the anti-money laundering compliance token following successful pre-sale

LONDON, December 5, 2017Coinfirm, a global leader in blockchain AML/CTF and compliance solutions, has announced today that it exceeded its goal for the pre-sale of its AMLT token ahead of its public sale scheduled for December 12th. AMLT is the native token of the Coinfirm platform, designed to enhance transparency and democratization within the financial system by allowing market participants to help determine the potential risk of others.  

Broadening Access to new markets


Coinfirm is an anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing platform (AML/CTF) that helps improve compliance efficiency and broadens financial inclusion. The company has been raising  standards  of compliance in the blockchain and financial ecosystem through its technical solution that allows financial institutions to interface with the cryptocurrency economy.  It does this by actively involving market participants globally in determining the risk of others in the network, allowing entities to rate and provide information on other market participants into the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform, with AMLT as their reward for the valid data they provide. For example, through AMLT, entities in “high risk” regions can also be evaluated based on the existing relationship and input of other market participants and have their risk lowered due to the positive feedback. Network members such as exchanges or payment processors can provide ratings and data on other market participants and cryptocurrency addresses to enrich data, potentially warn others about ransomware funds and be rewarded in AMLT tokens.

“AMLT is the next step in our vision for our AML/CTF Platform and is one that provides redefines compliance by giving a voice to the market itself. Our plan is not only for contributors of the AMLT crowdsale to be able to use their tokens with certain benefits on the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform but we expect to bring higher compliance efficiency and allow for greater financial inclusion globally,” Coinfirm Co-Founder and CEO Pawel Kuskowski.

An Established Network


Coinfirm already works with world-class partners and clients ranging from major virtual currency players such as Dash and RSK(RootStock), to leading financial institutions such as SEI. As a key link in bringing virtual currencies and blockchain to a broader market base, the blockchain agnostic Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform supports a number of cryptocurrencies such as BITCOIN, DASH, ETHEREUM and ERC20/ERC223 tokens used in ICO’s. This will further help with compliance and vital regulations like anti money-laundering and countering terrorist financing across the blockchain ecosystem. This supports a major need of the token issuers as well as the banks that want to provide bank account facilities to them.

Widening Financial Inclusion in Cryptocurrency


One of the more important problems that AMLT looks to solve with the democratization model is financial inclusion. Because the current compliance system and related tools and processes are so ineffective, millions of individuals and entities are excluded from the financial system as a whole. Coinfirm’s platform helps solve this by not only taking compliance effectiveness and accuracy to levels unavailable in the traditional system, but also by providing a model with AMLT that allows market participants to value and rate others and bring a level of democracy to compliance. So with AMLT, an entity existing in a high risk area can lower their risk rating through peer evaluation. Many excluded entities will now have the possibility to interact with the commercial financial ecosystem on a transparent and global level.

“By democratising compliance, we’re redefining compliance and the financial system as a whole. This opens up the system to entities in regions and situations that previously couldn’t access it.” Kuskowski said.

To be implemented into an already vibrant and active network of players through the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform, AMLT will have a strong foundation with commercial adoption and use. AMLT has the goal of building an open financial system and bringing cryptocurrencies into the mainstream in a safe, efficient and effective way.

Supporters can acquire AMLT tokens in the Coinfirm crowdsale from December 12th in exchange for  Ethereum (ETH). AMLT is a utility token that allows the holder access rights to the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform as well as a range of prepaid products. The sale has a hard cap of $16 million USD with bonuses for early participation. For more information visit https://amlt.coinfirm.io
