Blockchain analytics company Chainalysis has announced the roll-out of its anti-money laundering (AML) compliance solution for stablecoin issuer Tether.

By leveraging Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT) solution, the Tether platform would be able to monitor its stablecoin's usage across its blockchain, enabling the real-time tracking of suspicious transactions.

Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT) for Token Issuers is a real-time AML compliance solution for monitoring a token's full lifecycle, from issuance to redemption. Chainalysis KYT customers have been able to monitor their platforms for suspicious activity involving the Tether stablecoin since April.

"Stablecoins like Tether, which peg their value to other assets, were developed to appeal to mainstream audiences who are wary of the price volatility associated with many traditional cryptocurrencies," said Jonathan Levin, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Chainalysis. "By putting proper AML transaction monitoring in place, Tether is demonstrating its commitment to transparency and regulatory compliance, further building trust among its growing user base."

The market capitalization of Tether, which went live on Ethereum in January 2018, increased from $1.8 billion on January 1, 2019, to about $4.6 billion in February 2020. In addition to Ethereum, Tether also works with EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Tron, and most recently Algorand. Last month, it launched Tether Gold (XAU₮), a digital asset providing exposure to physical gold.

The integration with Chainalysis KYT is facilitated via an API. It enables token issuers to immediately begin monitoring large volumes of activity and identify high-risk transactions on an ongoing basis. The user interface also allows them to quickly understand the risk profile of each token holder with up-to-date data and filter them by the level of risk exposure to identify those that require immediate attention.

"Working with Chainalysis has allowed us to enhance our AML processes for all transactions involving the Tether token," said Paolo Ardoino, Chief Technology Officer, Tether. "This solution allows us to ensure a secure compliance program that fosters trust with regulators, law enforcement agencies and users. This is achieved without sharing our user's identifying information, as such data is only kept on our servers."
