#Crypto Compliance Insights
What is Chain Hopping?
Chain Hopping
Chain Hopping is the process of converting one form of cryptocurrency to another and therefore moving from one blockchain to another, often in a very short period of time.
How may criminals use this?
Criminals may use this layering technique to obfuscate the trail of cryptocurrency by shifting the transaction from one blockchain to another. They will try to move funds quickly to and from multiple cryptocurrencies. During the process, they may also make use of so-called privacy coins or decentralized exchanges.
Tracing Cryptocurrencies
There are sophisticated cross-chain analytics tools which have been developed to combat the effectiveness of chain hopping. These tools help to trace transactions and movements of funds across blockchains.
How can we help?
• Prepare and submit their VASP regulatory application
• Design and implement adequate Crypto-Compliance Framework
• Connect with our network of local and international partners to establish the whole VASP ecosystem
• Handle queries from regulators

What are Cryptocurrency Mixers?
Cryptocurrency Mixer
A Cryptocurrency Mixer operates a process which breaks the on-chain link between the source and destination address for a transaction. Basically, this is done by pooling (and mixing) your cryptocurrency with others and then sending it to an address of your choice minus a small percentage fee. This makes it extremely difficult to link a deposit of cryptocurrency made to the Mixer to the withdrawal and therefore ensures utmost privacy.
Centralized v/s Decentralized
A centralized mixer works in the form of a service provided by a third party service provider. These are typically service providers accepting your cryptocurrency and sending back different coins for a fee. Decentralized mixers use protocols to obscure transactions via either a coordinated or peer-to-peer method. There is no third party intermediary involved in the process.
How may criminals use them?
The use of cryptocurrency mixers is a common technique for criminals to obscure transactional histories on the blockchain. It may therefore become extremely difficult to identify transactions originating from a potential illegal source.
Are mixers illegal?
While the blockchain is public by nature, transactions still maintain some privacy unless someone can link a person to a crypto wallet address. In such a case, it will be easy to follow all transactions and movements of funds in or from the wallet. Bearing in mind the above, persons or businesses who want to enhance their privacy may make use of mixers. Fundamentally, mixers are not illegal but this may depend on laws of specific jurisdictions.
