Jakarta, February 19th, 2020 – Today Tokyocrypto, Indonesia’s largest and only licensed crypto-asset exchange announces that it has selected Singapore based regtech company Merkle Science as its blockchain monitoring provider to help detect, investigate and prevent the illegal use of crypto assets. The partnership enables Tokyocrypto to bolster its existing Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) processes and provide more accurate data and reports to regulators and law enforcement agencies.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with Tokyocrypto, the market leader in Indonesia and look forward to fostering a long term relationship with them as the Indonesian crypto-asset ecosystem continues to grow,” said Mriganka Pattnaik, Co-Founder and CEO, Merkle Science. “Our goal is not only to help exchanges manage their compliance risks but also help them to educate regulators and law enforcement on crypto crime so that policies and frameworks develop that positively impact the local market, which is why we are very optimistic about the future of crypto assets in Indonesia.”
