Introduction

Existing systems are ill-suited to identifying the risks associated with processing cryptocurrencies, making it hard for regulated financial institutions to handle transactions involving Bitcoin.

Highlights

  • Although most cryptocurrency transactions are legitimate, the pseudonymous nature of Bitcoin makes it challenging for regulated FIs to handle transactions involving it, even indirectly, as there is a risk that the funds originate from an illicit source.

Features and Benefits

  • This report looks at how handling Bitcoin conflicts with institutions' KYC/AML obligations and the problems involved in overcoming them.
  • Learn how the combination of the two companies’ technologies promises to mitigate the risks of handling Bitcoin.

Key questions answered

  • Why are changing regulatory requirements making Bitcoin a compliance issue even if an institution is not handling it directly?
  • How does the LexisNexis/Elliptic solution overcome these problems?
