With broader adoption and great institutional interest, cryptocurrencies are swiftly drifting into the mainstream of financial services today. However, this surge in interest has also made cryptocurrency a lucrative target for cybercriminals. Thus, governments and enterprises must be increasingly wary of the cryptocurrency marketplace to circumvent its abuse and ensure that cryptocurrency transactions are compliant with all the regulations in place. Blockchain Intelligence Group (BIG) is a global technology company built from the ground up to serve the very purpose. BIG provides risk management solutions to individuals and enterprises and investigative solutions to government and law enforcement to help them enable more informed decision-making and make crypto transactions safer.
Led by former Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent, Robert Whitaker, BIG puts forth a wide range of innovative search, analytics, and risk-scoring technology solutions and services for the cryptocurrency marketplace. Notably, BIG is specialized in forensic investigation and risk mitigation for law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, and regulators. BIG’s broad set of tools and seasoned investigators provide critical information that could gain deep insights into cryptocurrency transactions and activities.
In that regard, BIG’s BitRank Verified® is a securely built tool that issues transaction risk scores to meet regulatory compliance, including the know your customer (KYC) checks, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) efforts, and maintain the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorism Financing (CTF) laws. With an all-intuitive dashboard, BitRank Verified® provides a diverse set of features, such as regulatory reporting, automated workflow, up-to-date data, easy integration, and so on. From financial services to e-commerce sites, a wide range of enterprises leverage BitRank Verified® to deal with their cryptocurrency transactions and wallets today.
While BitRank Verified® presents an ideal cryptocurrency risk management solution, BIG’s QLUE™ takes it a step further. QLUE™ is a tool built to reduce the timeframe for crypto investigations significantly. The tool enables government and law enforcement agencies and regulators to uncover what has been going on behind cryptocurrency transactions. “QLUE™ is being touted by the industry as having the most user-friendly interface which makes it a lot easier to onboard new law enforcement or compliance officers,” says Lance Morginn, president, director and co-founder of BIG. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), QLUE™ quickly identifies anomalous activities and helps investigators follow the money trail. QLUE™ can rapidly traverse the blockchain by time, block, transaction ID, address, or amount. Moreover, it also has some preventive features to repel bad actors.
Besides, BIG also offers easy and flexible levels of expert cryptocurrency investigative services, training, and certification. BIG’s forensic services division provides hands-on forensic investigation and monitoring of cryptocurrency cases to track and trace illicit activities. The company presents a pool of world-class forensic experts and leading-edge technological proficiency to provide a complete forensic review with formal results reporting, which is even suitable to be submitted as evidence in court proceedings. Their services are billed hourly at the custom-level of investigative depth an agency requires.
This extensive know-how regarding cryptocurrency has made BIG a leading light in the domain. Today, BIG is educating many law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, government bodies, blockchain companies, and auditors on the basic and advanced concepts of cryptocurrency and the investigation of suspicious cryptocurrency activities through their on-site and online training programs. Their Cryptocurrency Training Academy, built to accomplish this, is helping widely to bring security and accountability to cryptocurrency. In that respect, BIG’s Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course is the world’s first investigator-developed, 8-hour online certification course for cryptocurrency investigations. Originally certified for U.S. law enforcement officers, the course has now been modified to address the needs of financial intelligence analysts, investigators, and compliance professionals.
Needless to say, BIG is aiding enterprises and government agencies substantially in the successful navigation of the ever-evolving threat landscape of cryptocurrency. From compliance risks to forensics, BIG has got it all covered for an organization when it comes to the cryptocurrency marketplace.
