Compliance API

The Compliance API allows users to retrieve the compliance risk associated with an address. In case of a high compliance risk, we provide detailed insights into the contributing factors for that risk.

How is compliance risk assessed?

When conducting compliance assessments for an address, we consider various elements, including its type, attributes, associated entities, and on-chain interactions. The address type primarily distinguishes between an EOA (Externally Owned Account) and a CA (Contract Account). The concepts of attributes and entities are explored in detail in this document. On-chain interactions refer to the specific blockchain transactions in which this address has participated.

Among the information involved in the assessment, certain factors influence the assessment strategy, while others serve as critical risk indicators that significantly affect the assessment results. The following are the leading risk indicators used in our methodology, which can also be obtained through the Get Risk Indicators API requests to stay informed about any changes in risk indicators.

Risk IndicatorCodeDescription

NO KYC

5020

The VASP (Virtual Asset Service Provider) associated with the address does not have a KYC (Know Your Customer) procedure in place.

BLOCKED

5018

The address has been blacklisted by critical contracts, primarily USDT and USDC.

SUSPICIOUS

5017

Address with suspicious activities.

COMPROMISED

5013

This address is deemed at risk, either due to being an externally owned account (EOA) with a weak key or a contract that is susceptible to exploitation.

GAMBLING

5016

The entity associated with this address is a gambling platform.

MIXING

5008

The address, primarily a contract, or associated service is believed to possess the capability to obfuscate fund flows.

LAUNDERING

5034

The addresses and entities associated with this label are believed to engage in money laundering activities.

CHILD ABUSE MATERIAL

5002

The entity associated with this address has been identified as forums and websites that facilitate the buying, selling, and distribution of child abuse material.

MIXER

5003

The entity associated with this address has been classified as a mixer.

DARKWEB BUSINESS

5001

This address has been involved in illicit businesses within the dark web.

DARK MARKET

5010

The entity associated with this address is a dark web marketplace.

ATTACKER

RANSOMWARE

5009

The entity affiliated with this address is a ransomware group.

SCAM

5005

This address is engaged in fraudulent activities.

SANCTIONED

5006

The entity associated with this address has been sanctioned.

Interpreting the risk score

Based on the risk assessment algorithm mentioned earlier, we classify an address's compliance risk into five levels, represented by scores ranging from 1 to 5. A higher score indicates a higher compliance risk associated with that address.

For addresses with a score of 4 or higher, it is advisable to refrain from interacting with them. For addresses with a score of 3, it is recommended to carefully consider the accompanying indicators to determine whether it is appropriate to engage with them.

Individual risk vs. Interaction risk

Based on how we identify risks, we categorize them into Individual and interaction risks. Individual risk primarily stems from the attributes and behavior of the address itself, while interaction risk arises from the address's involvement in risky on-chain transactions.

By default, we consider Individual and interaction risks to provide the final result. However, due to the temporary lack of support for interaction risk in some networks (refer to the Supported Networks section) and the longer calculation time required for interaction risk, we offer the option to specify whether to include the calculation of interaction risk when requesting compliance risk for an address.

What does 'Support for interaction risk' mean?

When evaluating risks, we distinguish between Individual and Interaction risks based on their origins. It is worth noting that calculating interaction risk may require additional resources that may not be readily available in specific networks. If a network supports Interaction risk, querying an address on that blockchain will yield a more thorough evaluation result.
