“In the past, there was no such infrastructure to facilitate behaviour [between crypto exchanges]. So we built Synga Bridge... whenever we make a transaction for our customers, we share customer information in a private and secure channel.”
FATF’s Travel RuleThe report further suggested that Sgyna Solution helps the CoolBitX to follow the travel rule set by the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF’s). The report added that as the adoption of cryptocurrency was increasing, therefore, the FATF decided to update its guidelines so that the law enforcement agencies could track suspicious transactions.
With the help of the Sygna Bridge, the crypto exchanges were able to share and transmit the required data via an application program interface (API).
Presently, Japan has been the largest market for CoolBitX and is planning to open a separate entity for its customers and investors.
The report mentioned that some other crypto firms like Shyft Network and CipherTrace also offers FATF-complaint solution. However, the Shyft Network did not mention which crypto has been using its solution.
