Serving more than 100 customers from 36 countries, Scorechain helps different types of businesses in their crypto compliance journey, from cryptocurrency companies to financial institutions with crypto trading, custody branch, digital assets customers onboarding, to audit and law firms.
We are pleased recently to interview one of our loyal customers: TripleA, a crypto payment gateway that empowers online and offline businesses to accept cryptocurrency payments. Founded in 2017 in Singapore by Eric Barbier, TripleA is compliant with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Singapore’s Central Bank under the Payment Services Act for Merchant Acquisition service and Digital Payment Token service, and complies with the highest international security standards.
Grace Lok, Business Controller at TripleA, shared with us their experience with Scorechain in regard to crypto compliance, crypto AML standards and cryptocurrency payment.
Scorechain: To what extent is it important for TripleA to implement a risk-based approach to crypto transaction monitoring? What processes are you following to implement such an approach?
Grace Lok: At TripleA, we prioritize our clients’ best interests and ensure the source of cryptocurrency received are legal; hence, we perform a risk assessment on each and every of our merchants to keep their transactions safe and secure.
Scorechain: What are the criteria when you choose your crypto AML & Compliance software provider?
Grace Lok: The accuracy and reliability are of utmost importance as they play a big part in ensuring safe and secure transactions, and at the same time, for us to comply with MAS regulatory standards.
Scorechain: Could you mention 3 main reasons why you corporate with Scorechain?
Grace Lok: Having worked with Scorechain for near 2 years, we value the in-depth investigation trail, broad coverage of databases, and the support provided by Scorechain.
Scorechain: Which features are the most useful for your daily compliance work? Could you explain with some examples?
Grace Lok: I find the detection of bad transactions from illegal sources most beneficial as Scorechain can flag out the transactions from illegal sources almost instantaneously. It has also helped to reject the bad transactions and help us stay compliant with our regulators.
Scorechain: What do you think about the future of cryptocurrency payment?
Grace Lok: Bitcoin commercial payments exceeded US$5 billion in 2020. And it’s clear that cryptocurrency has become mainstream. However, as cryptocurrency gains popularity, there’s a possibility that illegitimate usage from cryptos such as dark web, mixer, and hackers will increase. Therefore, we must continue to strengthen our compliance process to build trust and credibility with our clients.
Many thanks to TripleA and Grace Lok for their time dedicated to our interview and especially for their trust to Scorechain all the time.
