Koi Trading, a cryptocurrency OTC trading company, today announced a partnership with IdentityMind, Digital Identities You Can Trust, in order to provide Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance-as-a-service to money services businesses globally under the brand Koi Compliance.
“We’re excited to work with an innovative company like Koi Trading,” said Kieran Sherlock CTO, IdentityMind. “They have created a new way for more entrants into the digital currency space to be compliant from day one, and effectively serve their customers across different markets and geographies while minimizing their regulatory risk.”
Koi Compliance offers the first plug-and-play AML compliance solution that supports digital currency. Koi Compliance will pair their legal expertise and compliance analysts with IdentityMind’s platform that already supports over 35 digital currency exchanges worldwide. This enables companies to focus on running their business, while Koi Compliance leverages industry best practices to perform the legally required Know Your Customer (KYC), transaction monitoring, sanctions screening, recordkeeping, and regulatory reporting through IdentityMind.
“When we first set out to help companies with compliance, we immediately chose IdentityMind as our primary platform,” said Harry Zhou, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for Koi Trading. “IdentityMind’s immense experience in digital currency and their risk-based AML solutions enable Koi Compliance to provide the best technology-driven digital currency AML compliance services for exchanges, OTC desks and stablecoin projects that face rapidly evolving regulatory landscapes around the world.”
Back in January, Binance Labs, the investment and incubator arm of the popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance, announced a $3 million investment in Koi Trading.
