Beosin KYT to Support South Korea in Cracking Down Money Laundering by Tracking Crypto Transactions

According to South Korea’s Ministry of Justice 2023 task report published on January 27, South Korea’s MOJ plans to start tracking crypto transactions as it looks to crack down on money laundering and recover stolen funds from citizens.

The ministry will initially use third-party software to monitor transaction history, extract information on transactions and check the source of funds. It plans to develop its own system, which should be ready in the second half of the year.

From this news, we can see that combating virtual currency money laundering is becoming increasingly urgent and important.

Beosin Web3 Security Annual Report shows that Global crypto crimes amounted to $13.76 billion for the year 2022 (financial crimes are excluded), with money laundering accounting for $7.33 billion.

It can be seen that compliance is an almost inevitable trend in the cryptocurrency industry. Regulators need data analysis tools to monitor platforms for compliance, while digital finance companies such as exchanges and wallets need tools to help identify fraud and illegal behavior in order to achieve compliance.

On the one hand, the features of blockchain such as decentralization, openness, autonomy, information immutability and anonymity pose great challenges to regulators.

On the other hand, it is difficult for digital financial enterprises to conduct due diligence. A large number of digital financial enterprises are unable to quickly identify illegal transactions, assess transaction risks, determine the situation of users’ counterparty accounts, and help users freeze suspicious addresses.

As a leading global blockchain security company co-founded by several professors from world-renowned universities and there are 40+ PhDs in the team, Beosin provides "All-in-one" blockchain security solution covering Smart Contract Audit, Risk Monitoring & Alert, KYT/AML, and Crypto Tracing.
