RACE-PAY will simplify the management of both traditional and digital currencies.

With its easy-to-use and intuitive interface, RACE-PAY helps people new to the leading digital currencies transition from traditional to digital assets, so they can participate in the fast-growing new financial reality.

RACE-CAP’s mission is to bring the performance advantages of blockchain technology to individuals and businesses everywhere, by creating global digital Money Apps and a proprietary network to power them.

Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, today announced the launch of suspicious cryptocurrency transaction alerts in Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT), the real-time anti-money laundering (AML) compliance solution for monitoring cryptocurrency transactions. It is the first compliance alerts solution available across 15 cryptocurrencies.

Chainalysis KYT alerts are designed to help cryptocurrency businesses and financial institutions mitigate exposure to regulatory and reputational risk by helping compliance teams focus on the most urgent activity and enforce compliance policies while better allocating resources.

“As lawmakers and regulators focus their attention on the industry, it is more critical than ever that cryptocurrency businesses demonstrate compliance best practices,” said John Dempsey, VP Product, Chainalysis. “Every minute counts when managing exposure to sanctioned entities, hacked funds, darknet markets, and other illicit activities, which is why Chainalysis is investing in fast, actionable alerts to help our customers mitigate risk across cryptocurrencies.”

Chainalysis KYT has always provided real-time transaction monitoring for large volumes of cryptocurrency activity to identify high risk behavior, and now alerts are generated whenever a transfer involves a risky counterparty and crosses a value threshold. Alert levels include Severe, High, Medium, and Low, and are based on factors such as category, service, direct versus indirect exposure, direction of funds, and amount. Alerts are available for all 15 cryptocurrencies supported by Chainalysis, including Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and top stablecoins and ERC-20 tokens such as Tether, Maker, and Dai, with additional cryptocurrencies coming soon.

With alerts functionality built directly into the user interface and API, cryptocurrency businesses and financial institutions can keep track of, investigate, or take action on risky transfers. Additionally, customers can customize risk parameters based on their own business policies to help allocate resources accordingly.

“As a New York Trust company we are required to monitor transactions on and off our platform,” said Michael Breu, Gemini’s Chief Compliance Officer.  “Tools like KYT alerts, which provide real time and ongoing blockchain analysis, coupled with Gemini’s own compliance policies, help us meet our regulatory obligations.”

For the First Time, Huobi Token Is Now Usable as an eCommerce Payment Method

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Huobi is pleased to announce that Huobi Token (HT) can now be used to purchase art, apparel, hardware, event tickets and more from the eCommerce and crypto news platform FomoHunt. This marks the first time HT can be used for eCommerce by the general public.

While HT can be used for all merchandise on the site, offerings at FomoHunt also now include exclusive Huobi-branded merchandise.

“Our partnership with FomoHunt allows us to do two big things at once,” said Helena He, Head of Global Operations. “First, it’s a big step in expanding HT’s usefulness outside our direct ecosystem and making it more accessible to the general public. Second, it gives members of our community direct access to Huobi-branded merchandise, which is something many have repeatedly been asking for.”

FomoHunt co-founder, James Lawrence, expressed optimism about the new partnership.

“Being able to work directly with Huobi is an amazing opportunity. We are working together to allow our community users to use Huobi Token and make real-world purchases for clothes, art, FomoHunt subscriptions, event tickets, and even mining hardware. FomoHunt looks forward to future collaborations with Huobi.”

Huobi has made developing HT a priority over the past eight months. For example, Huobi Prime and Huobi FastTrack, Huobi’s innovative premium coin launch platform and its new coin listing program, which respectively launched in March and June this year, both use HT as their main token of exchange. In July, Huobi implemented a series of tiered trading fee discounts for users based on HT holdings.

Founded in 2018 as an alternative to the disparate information found across the internet, FomoHunt is a discovery portal into the world of blockchain projects, founders, events, products, and news. FomoHunt aims to provide an easy and streamlined portal for blockchain newcomers and experienced veterans with unrivalled project information and up to date information.

Finding a reliable way to move fiat on and off their platforms continue to be a headache for crypto companies. At TrustToken, we are continuing to double down on this use case by building out strong compliance practices and adding additional payment rails.”

Scott Simpson, VP of Strategic Partnerships of PAXOS said, “We believe that building a vibrant ecosystem for PAX is crucial for increasing use in consumers’ daily lives. Our partnership with Crypto.com makes it easier for consumers to benefit from their crypto holdings and were excited to make this important functionality live.”
