Robinhood Turns to Chainalysis for Data, Compliance Tools



Crypto tracing firm Chainalysis said it will provide data and compliance tools to Robinhood’s online crypto trading service, Robinhood Crypto.

  • Chainalysis said Robinhood (Nasdaq: HOOD) will use the software to meet compliance requirements and help keep accounts safe, the company said in a blog post Monday.
  • Robinhood Crypto will use Chainalysis KYT to flag “risky and illicit transactions” in real time, and Chainalysis Reactor to help with due diligence into potential suspicious activity.
  • Robinhood has said it expects to make its long-awaited crypto wallet available to all customers by early 2022. The wallets have a waitlist of more than 1.6 million.
  • As consumer access to cryptocurrency grows there is increased attention toward regulatory compliance standards.
  • “Chainalysis works closely with regulators and law enforcement to develop industry best practices and that approach is aligned with Robinhood’s commitment to working with policymakers in a collaborative manner,” said Ben Einstein, head of partnerships at Robinhood Crypto.
