Coinpath® API Use Cases

There are many use cases of Coinpath® APIs, however most interesting use cases of Coinpath® APIs are:

Compliance

Coinpath® API helps compliance companies with the money flow data. In order to build compliance tools you need money flow data as backbone. On this data you build deploy tech to deanonymizing addresses, monitor transactions, provide risk analysis etc.

Coinpath® APIs help you build solutions for KYT(Know your transactions) and Travel rules. If you are looking to build a compliance tool. Reach out to us, we might save a ton of money and time for you.

Investigation

Crypto Investigation companies investigate crypto crimes such as stolen cryptocurrency, wallet thefts, crypto scams and crimes that involve or utilize blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Using money flow APIs, you can build more sophisticated investigation tooling without worrying about maintaining a large data warehouse.

The easiest way to start with Coinpath® APIs is to use Bitquery Explorer. Our Explorer is the showcase of our APIs, you can simply search any address or transaction and see what data we show there and click on “Open GraphQL API ” button to see the API behind the data.

Simply search any address on our Explorer and check “Money flow tab”. You will see the following visuals. Try this link.

If you click on the “Open GraphQL IDE” on the bottom right, then you will see the API getting data behind the visualization.

Note, these visualizations are just a showcase of what Coinpath® APIs can do, you can build any type of tools or get any sort of data using our Coinpath® APIs.

Limitations

Coinpath® API only tells you about the money flow but we didn’t deploy de-anonymize technologies(identity of wallets). Because of this we don’t provide ready made risk analysis. However you can build such services using our APIs.

Additionally, Here are few limitations of Coinpath® API:

Cross Chain: As we are seeing more bridges to move asset cross chain and better blockchain interoperability, tracking them becomes more default. As we support more than 40 chains, we have data to trace cross chain, however current Coinpath® APIs don’t allow cross chain tracing.

Mixers: A mixer (or tumbler) is a service that mixes different streams of potentially identifiable cryptocurrency and outputs potentially unidentified cryptocurrency. Because mixers are built to anonymize crypto it becomes an arms race to trace crypto through mixers because on both ends tech is evolving. Coinpath® APIs don’t provide efficient tracing through mixers.

Centralized service: Centralized services are designed in a way that makes it almost impossible to trace funds through them. However because they are centralized they have KYCs and they are the biggest resource when tracing funds on chain.

Conclusion

Coinpath® APIs are unique offerings which saves tons of money and time for our existing clients. Currently we support Coinpath® APIs on more than 30 blockchains. By using our ready to use data infrastructure you can focus on your application. If you are building any blockchain data application do reach out to us using this link.

Note: Our Coinpath® APIs are targeted to companies building end products for various use cases. We do not provide consulting services or cater to retail customers.
