Chainalysis and Paxful Create New Compliance Standard for Peer-To-Peer Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Chainalysis Debuts Market Intel, a Data and Insights Portal to Help Asset Managers and Regulators Understand Cryptocurrency Markets

Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, announced its partnership with Paxful, a global, peer-to-peer (P2P) Bitcoin marketplace, which is raising the bar for compliance standards for P2P exchanges. Paxful uses Chainalysis KYT (Know Your Transaction) to monitor its platform’s cryptocurrency transactions in real-time and Chainalysis Reactor to build investigations when it detects suspicious activity. Together, these tools amplify Paxful’s compliance expertise and sets a new compliance benchmark for P2P cryptocurrency exchanges globally.

Previously, Chainalysis considered all P2P cryptocurrency exchanges as inherently risky and labelled them as such in its products because most are decentralized and oftentimes don’t even require users to set up an account. Paxful, however, set a new precedent for P2P exchanges by focusing on top-notch compliance and Know Your Customer (KYC) standards, driving Chainalysis to evolve its policy and evaluate P2P exchanges on a case-by-case basis before labeling them as risky, just as it does for other cryptocurrency exchanges.

“Compliance is the key factor for establishing trust in cryptocurrency exchanges,” said John Dempsey, VP Product, Chainalysis. “By adopting a case-by-case approach to evaluating P2P venues, we are helping to broaden trust and transparency across the cryptocurrency ecosystem.”

“At Paxful, compliance and security are top-of-mind as we work to keep the marketplace free from fraud and scammers,” said Lana Schwartzman, Chief Compliance Officer at Paxful. “Partnering with Chainalysis was a great choice as we work to protect our users and instill in them the importance of regulation and compliance on P2P marketplaces like ours.”
