LONDON, June 23, 2022 – 21 Analytics, a leading crypto FATF Travel Rule solution provider and ecosystem builder, and Coinfirm, the award-winning blockchain AML and analytics provider, are announcing their partnership today.
The Financial Action Task Force’s Travel Rule requires virtual asset service providers and financial institutions dealing with crypto assets to ensure that specific originating and beneficiary customer details are disclosed between counterparty entities when performing transactions.
Partnering with 21 Analytics, Coinfirm recommends the scalable 21 Travel Rule product to help VASPs be compliant. The privacy-first solution allows cryptocurrency companies to communicate with counterparties using the main Travel Rule protocols in the market, expanding its offering to Coinfirm’s community, so firms can continue to identify risk-related details about the beneficiary, leading them to make confident, comprehensive, and well-informed decisions to manage their AML, CFT and PEP risk through Coinfirm’s AML Platform.
“We are excited to partner with Coinfirm and help the wider ecosystem reach compliance with this new and challenging requirement that is the Travel Rule. The comprehensive offer allows VASPs to automate Travel Rule transfers in a secure and frictionless way, while continuing to count on Coinfirm’s intelligence and accuracy to build a safer industry.” – said Lucas Betschart, CEO of 21 Analytics.

“Adhering to the FATF’s Travel Rule is a key compliance requirement for VASPs and FIs to trust their counterparties. With this cooperation, the transparency of our ecosystem will be strengthened by deploying 21 Analytics’ streamlined Travel Rule software solution with our partners and clients in line with FATF’s Recommendation 16 guidelines.” – Dr. Mircea Mihaescu, CEO of Coinfirm.
