In support of the ATII’s Mission, BIG has entered a data-sharing agreement wherein cryptocurrency transactions and addresses tied to human trafficking and child exploitation will be passed on to ATII immediately in order to strengthen its database and aid in the fight against these crimes. BIG’s address attribution database will also be continuously updated with input from ATII’s own data.
"We are honored to formally welcome the Blockchain Intelligence Group as partners in the anti-human trafficking fight and know our data sharing collaboration targeting the utilization of cryptocurrency as a facilitator of human trafficking will make a big impact in our joint efforts to disrupt the financial networks of those dealing in child exploitation, sexual and labor trafficking. We look forward to aligning our cumulative data with law enforcement, government organizations and those financial institutions and corporations practicing corporate social responsibility in the fight against modern slavery,” says Aaron Kahler, founder and CEO of ATII.
Blockchain Intelligence Group’s President, Lance Morginn, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with The Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative; we are proud that our unique tools are part of the solution to combat modern day slavery. This partnership is directly aligned with our values in removing the allure of criminal use of cryptocurrency.”
