CoinLoan, the only EU-licensed provider of crypto-loan products, has announced a new partnership with Elliptic, the global leader in cryptoasset risk management. As adoption and investment into crypto continues to increase, so does the risk of cybercrime. The range of cryptoassets and currencies is growing daily and with cybercriminals becoming smarter and devising new schemes to strip investors of their digital assets, it is imperative that crypto platforms such as CoinLoan provide users with industry-leading security. For this reason, CoinLoan has partnered with Elliptic, giving its users increased peace of mind that their loans and investments are safe from scammers.
The latest and biggest threat to crypto investors is from information stealers called cryware. Cryware surreptitiously withdraws data from non-custodial wallets which contain patterns used for private keys, seed phrases, or wallet addresses. It uses a technique known as clipping and switching in which the cryware replaces the victim’s copied wallet address with the attacker’s address. Once the funds have been transferred there is nothing the victim can do to reverse the transaction. As the only EU-licensed lending platform, CoinLoan prides itself on being at the cutting edge of industry developments, and cybersecurity is no exception, a mission that is shared with Elliptic.
Elliptic is a widely used, standard-setting cryptoasset risk management and blockchain analytics firm:
66% of all crypto volume runs through exchanges using Elliptic, covering over 98% of the global trading volumes.
It provides actionable insights for 500+ cryptoassets and 100 billion+ data points.
Its rich API programmatically alerts companies of funds and addresses involved in different types of fraud.
