DeFi platforms can now call the Venrai Chainlink node to receive cryptographically-verified data detailing OFAC-sanctioned wallet addresses, serving as a plug-and-play solution that improves the regulatory compliance of DeFi platforms such as decentralised exchanges.

Projects building enterprise implementations of DeFi protocols now have a clearer route to sanctions compliance, with Venrai’s source-signed compliance data available directly on-chain, allowing users to query whether a given Ethereum, Ethereum Classic or Tether address appears on the OFAC Sanctions List.

DeFi is a blockchain-based form of finance that does not rely on central financial intermediaries such as brokerages, exchanges, or banks to offer traditional instruments. Instead it relies on smart contracts on blockchain platforms.

Now a $100bn sector, DeFi is likely to have a significant impact on how banks operate in the future with the potential to disrupt the way our current financial systems are structured.

“When searching for talent within the cryptocurrency space, surprisingly it doesn’t take long when you have such inspirational figures like Jason Tucker-Feltham at the heart of it all. Jason grabbed our attention when we noticed the exceptional work he is doing as CEO of Venrai (LCS) coupled with his extensive background within the financial sector. As a frequent public speaker, he takes his knowledge to a wider audience sharing his wisdom with current and or aspiring crypto enthusiasts.

“With nascent technology, there’s a tendency to ‘move fast and break things’ (to borrow Zuckerberg’s terminology).  In the cryptocurrency space, exchange hacks such as those involving Mt.Gox, Coincheck and Bitgrail have been frontrunners to a much longer litany of security failures.  Latent innovation and technological advancement are progressive but only to the point where they lead to robust, dependable systems. 

With that perennial dark cloud cast over the industry, 150sec spoke with Jason Tucker-Feltham, founder of Venrai, to figure out if and how that’s going to change.”
