As part of the partnership, Binance Canada will utilize HALO, Solidus’ crypto-native market integrity hub, to optimize multiple key risk monitoring and compliance services including marketplace surveillance, transaction monitoring, FINTRAC Suspicious Transactions Reporting (“STR”) and Large Virtual Currency Transaction Reporting (“LVCTR”) and institutional onboarding.

Solidus HALO is currently used to monitor more than 1 trillion events per day across more than 150 markets, protecting more than 25 million retail and institutional entities. It will allow Binance Canada to manage multiple risk and compliance programs in one platform, while also utilizing behavioral-based detection models powered by machine-learning to address a range of crypto-specific threats and alerts.

“Binance is a market leader both in Canada and globally, and we are proud to support their commitment to elevating market integrity standards, user experience and safe crypto growth,” said Solidus Founder and CEO, Asaf Meir. “This partnership is in line with both our firms’, and the industry’s, deep commitment to enabling crypto, DeFi and blockchain’s potential by mitigating the new risks they introduce. Users and regulators globally are increasingly expecting higher standards of market integrity – and this partnership will help advance those.”
Binance has a robust compliance program that incorporates anti-money laundering, trade monitoring and global sanctions principles and tools used by financial institutions to detect and address suspicious activity. Binance’s strong compliance/KYC (know your customer) & KYB (know your business) programs enabled the company to secure approvals and registrations in France, Italy and Spain, being one of the few crypto companies to do so from G-7 countries. Recently, Binance has announced MinervaAI as its partner in Canada to provide robust KYC (know your customer) and KYB (know your business) services based on AI (artificial intelligence).
