Cryptocurrency exchanges

Crypto payments gateways

Crypto and their KYC, KYB and due diligence

Many crypto companies are failing to provide sufficient AML procedures

The FCA estimates that 85% of current registration applications from crypto companies fail to demonstrate sufficient AML procedures, which is a requirement if they wish to trade in the UK.

The highly pseudonymous nature of crypto allows criminals to hide their activity, making is challenging to verify the identities of buyers and traders. Coupled with the global growth of the sector over the past few years, crypto has become exposed and vulnerable to money laundering operations due to varying regulatory requirements in different jurisdictions.

Therefore, without sufficient AML and KYC/B processes, companies are at risk of fines and even a two-year prison sentence for MLROs and directors.
