- Dash integrates TRM to enable anti-financial crime monitoring.
- Integration provides series of unique features for users.
Dash, a payments-focused cryptocurrency featuring instant transactions and low transaction fees, has been integrated with TRM labs, a leading blockchain analytics provider, to enable anti-financial crime monitoring of transactions conducted in Dash.
TRM is a top blockchain intelligence firm that helps organizations identify financial crime risk in blockchain-based transactions, wallets, addresses and related entities.
Because of its speed, Dash is one of the most frequently used cryptocurrencies for point-of-sale transactions and is accepted at well over 150,000 physical merchant locations.
Dash is most popular in regions where technical access barriers exist to traditional payment systems, or where hyperinflation has made existing currency impractical to use. This is because of its low fees and fast transactions. For example, in Venezuela Dash accounts for over 26 percent of in-store crypto transactions, more than any other cryptocurrency, according to the country’s largest crypto payment processor Cryptobuyer.
“It is important for Dash to be supported in the leading platforms that exchanges use to meet their AML obligations. TRM Labs has emerged as a preferred provider for many of our exchange partners, so it is great news that Dash support was added,” says Ryan Taylor, the CEO of Dash Core Group, one of the development organizations supporting Dash. “It means exchanges utilizing TRM Labs can continue to confidently list Dash for their users.”
“By integrating with Dash, we enable organizations, including virtual asset service providers who want to list Dash, the ability to detect cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime and strengthen their compliance with AML/CFT regulations,” says Esteban Castaño, co-founder and CEO of TRM Labs.
