Problems Clain Seeks To Solve
Clain believes that cryptocurrencies create a new haven for economic crime. Modern criminals have quickly appreciated the unique properties of digital assets and more frequently use the emerging ecosystem for a broad range of unlawful activities such as:
- Money laundering
- Terrorism financing
- Illegal gambling
- Tax evasion
- Drug trafficking and
There is a significant lack of transparency when it comes to a wider adoption of digital assets, especially Bitcoin, as a method of fast, anonymous, and third-party-free transactions. The absence of identifiable counterparties together with complexities associated with traceability of crypto funds significantly impairs convergence of Bitcoin technology with traditional sectors of the economy.
What Does Clain Do?
Clain aims to fill the gap and endorse further adoption of Bitcoin as a legitimate means of exchange. To this end, the platform is addressing a broad range of problems by providing practical solutions to accomplish the following:
- Identify illicit activities: Clain focuses on identifying illicit transactions and money laundering schemes.
- Analyze capital flows: the platform is estimating capital flows between network participants, gaining insight on their tax liability base and scale of participation.
- Investigating crimes: Clain is tracing and searching for stolen Bitcoins as well as investigating ransomware.
- Analyzing community sentiment: this involves measuring crypto community public mood and its impact on market dynamics, tracing physical capital flows among major exchanges in real-time.
- Measuring risks: This has to do with maintaining entities scores and automating background-check processes through Clain’s API.
By developing an innovative and powerful platform, Clain strives to become the industry standard for crypto-compliance solutions.
