This week, Vogogo announced in its second-quarter financial statements that leading Bitcoin companies, including BitPay, ChangeTip, Genesis Global Trading and Zinger, have integrated Vogogo’s risk management/compliance products onto their platforms.

Vogogo’s services include customer verification, anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism finance compliance reporting, payment and rules engine and fraud mitigation. Global bitcoin payment services provider BitPay has integrated Vogogo’s AML-CTF global compliance, which validates users against global watch lists and protects the platform from money laundering attempts with advanced analytics and decision-making technology.

“We are seeing significant interest in our risk-management services and payment services from alternative markets,” said Vogogo CEO Geoff Gordon. “Capturing those opportunities will help us drive revenue while we continue to move forward with our plan to be the dominant provider of risk management and payment processing services to the cryptocurrency industry. We are huge believers in blockchain technologies and we aim to play a significant role in anchoring that industry for a long time to come.”

Vogogo also has integrated their compliance technologies onto global bitcoin exchange platform Kraken, as a part of its expansion across Canada.

“We see a lot of opportunity for Kraken in Canada, and we’re counting on Vogogo’s expertise in risk management and payment processing to make it possible for Canadians to move their dollars safely and efficiently to and from Kraken,”announced Kraken CEO Jesse Powell.
