Financial industry bodies defend permissionless blockchains against Basel Committee’s classification

Published

on

financial-industry-bodies-defend-permissionless-blockchains-against-basel-committee’s-classification

Five financial industry bodies have pushed back against the treatment of permissionless blockchains by a global banking supervision authority.

In December, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) published a report on proposed amendments to bank capital requirements for digital assets, stablecoins, and tokenized assets.

The report classified all permissionless blockchains as high-risk, claiming that some risks could not be mitigated through existing solutions. BCBS was particularly concerned about banks’ lack of control over third parties who conduct most operations on these blockchains. It also warned about their privacy, finality, liquidity, and political, legal, and policy risks.

In response, five global financial industry regulators have defended permissionless blockchains. In a joint response, they stated that the industry “has all necessary expertise and robust compliance frameworks to fully identify, manage and mitigate these risks.”

The five are the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, the Global Financial Markets Association, the Institute of International Finance, the Futures Industry Association, and the Financial Services Forum.

Blockchain’s application in the financial industry is evolving, and regulators must not disincentivize banks from exploring the technology, the regulators stated. By putting up unnecessary hurdles, the BCBS would only push these institutions to the non-regulated shadow banking space, which would be riskier for them.

The regulators further noted that dozens of global banks have conducted successful pilots using permissionless blockchains. These pilots have shed more light on the technology’s application and allowed them to understand and control emergent risks.

The BCBS approach is unfair to blockchain and veers away from the regulator’s long-held “same asset, same risk” approach, they added.

“While we acknowledge that risk mitigation techniques are evolving for permissionless crypto assets…we are confident that solutions already exist in respect of specific use cases,” the five stated.

They believe deciding whether to build on permissionless blockchains should be left to the banks.

The financial sector has been a leader in blockchain adoption, with some, like JPMorgan (NASDAQ: JPM), developing their own permissioned networks, albeit unsuccessfully. However, most have relied on existing solutions to build applications spanning settlement, bond issuance, tokenization, etc.

Partnership between Siren and Chainalysis to trace blockchain transactions and disrupt illicit activities

Published

on

partnership-between-siren-and-chainalysis-to-trace-blockchain-transactions-and-disrupt-illicit-activities

Siren, the all-in-one investigation platform company on a mission to keep people, assets and networks safe, and Chainalysis, the blockchain intelligence platform, announced details of a strategic partnership at the annual Chainalysis Links event in New York.

As cryptocurrency becomes more mainstream and used by both good and bad actors, the partnership addresses the increasing need for more sophisticated intelligence technology to fight illicit cryptocurrency activity.

Chainalysis’ mission
Many believe cryptocurrency is the future, and it is expected that blockchains will soon be the world’s primary mechanism for the exchange of value. Chainalysis’ mission is to build trust in blockchains, setting the stage for the mass adoption of crypto in a way that gives participants safety and security.

Its data powers investigation, compliance, and market intelligence software that has been used to solve some of the world’s most high-profile criminal cases and grow consumer access to cryptocurrency safely.

AI-driven search functionality

Siren is an AI-driven investigative intelligence platform that is used by some of the world’s pioneering Law Enforcement, National Security and Cyber threat investigators. Siren connects and enriches local classified information with external vendor data as well as data available from public sources to identify patterns, actors and events.

Siren’s AI-driven search functionality dramatically reduces the complexity in searching for intelligence-like browsing the internet or shopping online anyone can search for intelligence links, regardless of technical abilities, across multiple data sources and get immediate results on both desktop and mobile devices. Using patented technology, Siren delivers a modern search experience at enterprise speed and scale, making advanced intelligence queries accessible to all across the organisation.

Chainalysis Investigations solution

Through the collaboration, illicit activity is easier to identify in real-time across multiple data sources, including Chainalysis’ on-chain data, allowing investigators and analysts to map addresses to named services, detect illicit activity as it happens, and build cases.

The Siren platform leverages the Chainalysis Investigations API (IAPI), part of the Chainalysis Investigations solution. The Investigations API is a REST-based API that programmatically helps to prioritise and accelerate investigations. This ensures investigation teams can focus on the most important cases with the highest likelihood of success. The IAPI enables data engineers and scientists to enrich existing datasets with Chainalysis insights to enhance large-scale investigations, surface new leads, and uncover previously unknown connections between different cases for deconfliction.

New York at Links 2024
John Randles, CEO of Siren, said: “Linking to crypto across multiple data sources is pivotal for investigators. We’re delighted to announce the partnership here in New York at Links 2024. We were lucky to attend a couple of Chainalysis events last year and experience first-hand how the synergies in our offerings and missions.”

John Randles will speak on Day Two of Chainalysis Links 2024 on the Intersection of AI and Crypto panel. Shannon Hughes, Senior Director, Head of Business Development and Partnerships commented: “Cryptocurrency is no longer just a niche specialty for elite cyber law enforcement units – our customers find connections to crypto across national security, crime, fraud, and cyber threats. This partnership enables investigators to combine Chainalysis data with other data sources to identify intelligence signals and actionable leads across specialties. This is the future of harnessing the transparency of blockchains to build a safer economic system.”
