Pluto Digital and Elliptic partner to make crypto Yield Optimization Platform safer for all

Elliptic, the global leader in cryptoasset risk management, has partnered with Pluto Digital PLC (Pluto), a crypto technology and operations company that makes Web 3.0 Decentralised Finance (DeFi) and Metaverse gaming accessible to all.

Under the agreement, Elliptic will provide blockchain analytics and screening solutions for Pluto’s Yield Optimization Platform (YOP), to protect the company and its customers from illicit actors.

Pluto aims to make DeFi innovations available to everyone through YOP, created by its Labs division, and cutting-edge Metaverse play-to-earn gaming, through its Metaverse division.

Pluto deployed Elliptic’s wallet screening solution – Lens – to screen crypto wallets participating in the YOP ecosystem in real-time, and protect its business and customers from financial crime, including money laundering, terrorist financing, and sanctioned entities.

Dave Burrells, Chief Operating Officer at Pluto Digital, said: “We went with Elliptic because we needed to be able to screen wallets as soon as they are connected, not after a transaction has been made. We need to protect our company, our reputation, and our customers, and this means we need to know where crypto is coming from.”

Dave Burrells said that illicit actors, including North Korean state-sponsored hackers the Lazarus Group, had been identified and blocked from interacting with the platform on day one.

“Sanctions activity can be so painful, but Elliptic’s API and risk rules make it such an easy process. I wouldn’t be able to build functional compliance operation otherwise,” Dave Burrells added.

Pluto Digital is a crypto technology and operations company that makes Web 3.0 Decentralised Finance (DeFi) more accessible to all.

Elliptic is the global leader in crypto-asset risk management for crypto businesses and financial institutions worldwide. Recognized as a WEF Technology Pioneer and backed by investors including J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, SBI Group, and Santander Innoventures, Elliptic has assessed risk on transactions worth several trillion dollars, uncovering activities related to money laundering, terrorist fundraising, fraud, and other financial crimes.
