DeFi

CipherTrace Unveils Software that Lets DeFi Protocols Comply with OFAC Sanctions

Blockchain forensics company CipherTrace announced it released a tool that decentralized exchanges can integrate so they can block addresses that are on the sanctions list of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

These addresses are sanctioned because they are associated with activities adversarial to U.S. national interest, such as terrorist funding, funding weapons of mass destruction, etc, The Block reported.

CipherTrace CEO Dave Jevans said in a statement: 

“The $40 billion locked in DeFi protocols puts an even bigger target on DeFi exchanges and protocols. Ensuring that sanctioned addresses cannot use DeFi to fund weapons of mass destruction programs should be among DEXs’ chief concerns right now.”

The Block said the tool relies on a node from Chainlink, which provides data inputs for smart contracts. 

Daniel Kochis, Head of Partnerships at Chainlink Labs said in a statement:

“We’ve seen structures that purport to enable users to lend money, earn interest, borrow money, exchange, take positions; these are all financial activities, and they are likely subject to various laws already, including securities law, potentially banking and lending laws—definitely AML/CTF laws.”

In the past, Triple H, now WWE Executive Vice President discussed whether or not the company would jump into the NFT Space. He told Fightful.com:

“Those are things, as technology changes and those opportunities become available, it’s always things that we’re looking at. Vince has a big philosophy of not wanting to be the first person to jump into the pool, but you also don’t want to be the last. That’s where we are and we look at all the options. In some ways, we’re tailor-made for [NFT] rather than some random dunk in the NBA. Our moments are iconic. It’s what we do, we create iconic moments that live forever. I don’t necessarily fully understand [NFT] and it’s something we look at and have a lot of people in our company that are a lot smarter than me that are looking at them constantly,” 

Paxful

Paxful Denies Rumors of Data Breach

A vendor in the black market is selling a database that allegedly contained personal information of around 4.8 million Paxful customers and staff. The vendor said they have the first and last names, birth dates, email addresses, physical addresses, and passwords of the Paxful clients. The price for the entire database is 1 BTC or around $58,000 today. 

However, Paxful CEO Ray Youssef denies the breach.

According to Decrypt, Youseff’s claims backs up the skepticsm that the vendor encountered trying to sell the data. 

First and foremost, Paxful had not reported being breached. Also they said 1 BTC is too low of a figure for such a high profile leak.
