Experience-led services to identify and mitigate financial crime risk
Distributed ledger technologies have the power to change the way individuals and entire societies interact and do business. We help companies to gain trust in these technologies and provide insights enabling all participants to make educated decisions. Our team of blockchain experts brings together the deep technical understanding of the various blockchain networks as well as the know-how to interpret transaction patterns and transaction flows that can be analysed on public blockchains. We maintain copies of the most important public distributed ledgers and have developed Blockchain Facts, a suite of tools and services to interrogate public blockchains. Our solutions allow us to understand relationships between actors and related transaction patterns in real-time for risks predictions, outlier detection and pattern analysis.
Increasing regulatory pressure and the transformation of many public blockchain ecosystems into integral parts of the very same financial system that they were supposed to replace increases the demand for blockchain forensics and blockchain analytics. To address these market requests, we brought our leading blockchain and analytics experts together and developed our in-house analytics platform Blockchain Facts. This platform allows us to integrate Open Source Intelligence as well as proprietary data feeds with the public blockchain data to address the most pressing needs of our clients. For a confidential discussion that can lessen your risks from interacting with public blockchains or from accepting digital assets in your business, please get in touch for more details.
PwC’s Blockchain Facts is a universal public blockchain analytics platform. It maintains a copy of each supported blockchain and with each new block adds the latest transactions to a central data warehouse. Using an abstract API, custom applications can interrogate the data warehouse to perform analysis tasks. We are developing and maintaining a growing set of custom transaction tracers, behavioural analysers, clustering algorithms and outlier detection modules.
Our analysis platform.
“From prospect onboarding and source of wealth corroboration to fraud and financial crime investigations, our experienced team uses proprietary analytics technology to find the facts our clients are looking for.”
Complex transactions traces with hundreds or thousands of transactions are difficult to understand if not visualised as a transaction graph. We have integrated a number of the latest visualisation technologies into Blockchain Facts. This helps us to turn information into actionable insight for our clients.
