Iknaio Crypto-Asset Analytics: powered by GraphSense
Contemporary advancements in the Crypto-Asset realm encompass a variety of innovations. Alongside these developments, the use of Bitcoin and other Crypto-Assets for illicit purposes has surged and serve as primary payment instruments within the Dark Web, facilitating cybercrimes like ransomware and scams as well as enabling transactions related to illicit materials such as drugs and weapons. Crypto-Asset Analytics involves the collection of data from multiple blockchains and relevant off-chain sources, leading to the computation of network data-sets that represent monetary flows between individual addresses and entities, such as Crypto Asset Service Providers (CASPs).

Crypto-Asset Analytics powered by GraphSense
GraphSense is a cutting-edge open-source platform available on GitHub, specializing in the analysis of Crypto-Asset transaction flows using advanced data science techniques. This platform integrates data from various blockchains and essential off-chain sources to create comprehensive network datasets. These datasets effectively depict monetary flows between individual addresses and entities, including Crypto Asset Service Providers (CASPs).
The data collected is accessible through a powerful API, enabling the implementation of custom, automatized Crypto-Asset forensic or compliance workflows. Like other solutions, GraphSense provides a low-entry dashboard for investigating Crypto-Asset flows and a mechanism to extend the dashboard with customized add-ons tailored to resolve institution-specific problems, such as the deconfliction of Crypto-Asset cases.
GraphSense introduced the concept of TagPacks to support the collaborative gathering and provenance-aware curation of attribution tags. A key feature of GraphSense is its ability to provide direct data access, which is essential for employing modern, automated, data-driven analysis methods. Therefore, GraphSense can be seen as a complementary solution to existing blockchain analytics tools, which typically restrict access to their underlying data.
