Exchanges can be a safe haven for financial criminals, using crypto currencies, commodities and other easily exchanged products to hide the true source and destination of dirty money.
Those days are over.

Now, many governments around the world, and multinational groups like the Financial Action Task Force, are working day in and day out to make sure that Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations are in place to ensure that exchanges understand and verify the identities of their participants and report any suspicious activity — or face stiff consequences.

Traditional KYC and AML systems are outdated, disconnected, inefficient, incomplete, and costly. They produce too many false positives, miss many true positives, and require too much manual processing — all of which leaves your exchange exposed and vulnerable.

Enter Merlon Intelligence.

So, how do we do it?

In a word, indexing. Our AI-enabled Financial Crime Compliance (FCC) platform brings together the most advanced Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and cloud technologies to accumulate and understand massive amounts of customer data and give you a unified view.

More specifically, our platform consists of:


Merlon Identity Index

to ingest open source data from sanctions lists, Politically Exposed Person (PeP) lists, aliases, permutations, relationships and identities.


Merlon Compliance Index

to accurately assess and index the risk of customers in light of internally viewable Personally Identifying Information (PII) and information about a customer’s money and their transactions.


Merlon Content Cloud

to aggregate open source news and information, regulatory and public filings, and data from the Dark Web and social media channels.

On top of our revolutionary platform, we have engineered world-class applications like:

Intelligent Screening

Why is it Important?

A fine or penalty could severely damage the reputation of your exchange, decimate investor trust, and negatively impact your bottomline.

You need an easy-to-use system that leverages the very latest technologies to deliver real results, effectively and efficiently, in order to stay ahead of ever-evolving regulations and scrutiny from regulators
