Robinhood partners with Chainalysis ahead of crypto wallet launch


In preparation for the app’s debut of its crypto wallet, Chainalysis, a blockchain analytics firm, will collaborate with Robinhood to provide data and trading tools.

The integrated relationship with Robinhood Crypto, according to Chainalysis, will help the trading app meet compliance standards ahead of the launch of its crypto wallet, which is planned to roll out to all users in early 2022. Robinhood will use Chainalysis’ Know-Your-Transaction, a monitoring compliance solution, as well as Chainalysis Reactor, an investigation programme, according to the company. Chainalysis’ certification processes will be used by the trading app’s teams to achieve compliance, according to the company.

“Chainalysis collaborates closely with regulators and law enforcement. In order to promote industry best practises”, said Robinhood Crypto’s head of partnerships Ben Einstein.

More than 1.6 million individuals have signed up for a Robinhood wallet. That will allow them to deposit and withdraw Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), and other digital currencies. Since its first announcement in September, the trading app has been testing its digital wallet feature.
