Bitfury Launches New Software To Fight Bitcoin Crime

Bitfury has launched a software stack called Crystal that is designed to help fight crimes involving Bitcoin. Crystal will allow users to detect and examine criminal activity that takes place on the Bitcoin Blockchain and avoid interacting with coins that are associated with illegal transactions. Crystal’s free demo version is available for individuals starting Jan. 30, while a full version for corporate clients will begin shipping in March 2018. Crystal’s key tool is the so-called “detailed risk scoring” solution that is capable of tracing “suspicious” transactions to the final address or withdrawal point. It can also calculate the risk score of any address, which is estimated based on how closely that address is associated with known illegal activities. Other tools include autonomous monitoring of Bitcoin addresses, compilation and sharing of security reports and the REST Application Programming Interface (API) that will allow third-party platforms to build customized solutions on top of Crystal’s tools. Bitfury’s Crystal solution can potentially help in cases such as these by tracking the stolen bitcoins to their eventual point of withdrawal, whereby criminals can be caught red-handed.

The Bitfury Group Unveils Solution For Analyzing Related Bitcoin Addresses

The Bitfury Group, the world’s leading full-service Blockchain technology company detailed a new solution to help reveal relationships between bitcoin addresses that minimizes errors in data and ensures greater accuracy in linking bitcoin addresses for criminal investigations, while also showing bitcoin users ways to protect their privacy.
“Currently, bitcoin users can have multiple addresses, making it easier to conceal identities and commit crimes on the Blockchain. The ability to link related addresses, called ‘clustering,’ is an important new tool that helps law enforcement agencies conduct criminal investigations,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of The Bitfury Group.
Bitcoin address clustering is a process that exposes bitcoin users by determining which addresses belong to a single user through an analysis of Blockchain data. The act of clustering groups those addresses together, enabling investigators to link them to a single entity.
In a new report, Bitfury reveals a comprehensive approach to clustering that reduces errors in results. While prior algorithms constructed clustering models using Blockchain information and validated it with off-chain data, such as public information on the Internet, Bitfury’s new method uses both data types during the model construction step. The proposed approach allows investigators to reduce errors in unreliable input data sources and achieve a higher level of accuracy.
