August 21, 2020 Swiss blockchain firms announce first fully AML-compliant BTC transaction.

Mt. Pelerin, Crypto Finance AG, and 21 Analytics announced today that they have completed the first Bitcoin transfer that complies automatically with all anti-money laundering standards set by the Financial Action Task Force. The effort, which took place Thursday, focused specifically on the ‘travel rule,’ which mandates that VASPs share customer and transaction information with one another. This transaction was the first to compile with the travel rule in a fully automated manner; such practices were previously only possible to do manually.
