Blockchain Intelligence Leader Chainalysis Sets Up Shop in Dubai

Dubai has established itself as a global crypto hub in recent years, attracting major industry players with its progressive regulations and business-friendly policies.

The company provides investigative and compliance software, in addition to actionable intelligence, to help governments and businesses better understand cryptocurrency activities.

Over the years, Chainalysis has built a reputation for cracking down on illicit crypto transactions related to drug trafficking, money laundering, ransomware attacks and more.

Some of Chainalysis’ highest profile cases include assisting the US Department of Justice in dismantling darknet market AlphaBay in 2017.

More recently in 2022, the firm partnered with the FBI to track and seize $3.6 billion in Bitcoin paid to the notorious ransomware group REvil.

With its Dubai headquarters, Chainalysis aims to further support the UAE’s vision of becoming a global crypto hub.
