The Company will enter into an agreements with Sannabis SAS and Affiliate View Systems, Inc. (OTC: VSYM) to acquire its stake in sannabis

Indiana-USA and Cali-Colombia, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ultimate Sports, Inc. (OTC: USPS) (the company’), a provider of men’s health services, announces negotiations to acquire Sannabis SAS, a Colombian cannabis company. Sannabis and its affiliates hold all four cannabis licenses: Seed Use, THC Cultivation, THC-Free Cultivation (Hemp) and Manufacture/Export. Copies of the 4 licenses available at https://www.sannabis.co/nuestras-licencias

Ultimate Sports, Inc. will acquire Sannabis SAS and initiate a name change upon closing. Colombia has become the number one supplier of cannabis in the world and continues to benefit from the international movement towards the legalization of cannabis. Sannabis has developed a product that they believe could be prescribed by US physicians under the company’s current business model.

View Systems, Inc. (OTC: VSYM), developer of the ViewScan concealed weapons detector, and Sannabis have established an effective memorandum of understanding allowing VSYM to acquire Sannabis. View Systems has decided that its stake in Sannabis is better placed in a stake in USPS, which will acquire Sannabis. Final terms have not been decided and will be announced at a later date. What should be clear is that the stake is designed to empower View Systems to manufacture new and improved ViewScans to be installed in schools across the country. View Systems, Inc. has seen an increase in inquiries with the recent school shootings. View Systems has been securing high schools for over 10 years, here is an ABC News clip of ViewScan detecting a student with 2 guns, https://www.wxyz.com/news/region/detroit/mumford-high-school-student – faces charges after guards find a gun in his backpack

ViewScan is a passage gate that detects weapons without the need to empty pockets, for schools with thousands of students it is by far the most efficient solution. Some schools in NYC use conventional metal detectors where students have to empty their pockets, causing long lines. When a student or visitor passes through the portal, a photograph is taken by the integrated camera system and stored. Threatening objects are located visually on a computer screen and send an audible alert to on-site or remote security personnel. To learn more about ViewScan, visit www.viewsystems.com

View Systems believes they can capitalize on their goodwill and track record when approaching new and existing school districts for new facilities. The ViewScan praised in the 2019 clip was installed in 2011, along with 70 others in Detroit high schools that are still in use today. View Systems thinks they can approach these school districts to switch to wireless units. Fortunately, school safety is a top concern for most governors across the country with increased budgets and grants available to localities.

View Systems, Inc. is finalizing its 2020 and 2021 audit reviews to be current with its SEC filings with more disclosures.

Sannabis manufactures products and has hired a marketing company to launch an aggressive sales campaign in Colombia. While they build their cultivation and manufacturing facilities, they buy raw materials from a reputable licensed supplier and use third-party labs.

Sannabis doctors are on call for telemedicine or office visits. Sannabis Wellness Centers offer the only legal way to obtain raw cannabis in Colombia, where there are no dispensaries. They will franchise their business model to all cities in Colombia to provide responsible medical cannabis users with a safe place to learn how to grow and store a traceable plant. The Sannabis Wellness Center offers a 4-session course that certifies the producer and issues them with a Sannabis Producer Card. Several municipalities are in favor of this economic model to reduce crime and not feed the black market. For more information visit https://oferta.sannabis.co/curso-de-autocultivo

Ultimate Sports, Inc. will continue to expand its men’s health services business and integrate Sannabis men’s wellness products. The company will share more details in the very near future.

About Sannabis SAS

The roots of sannabis began in Colombia in 1996 when his partner, Juan Paulo Guzman, inspired by European initiatives, began to investigate the use of industrial cannabis. This was during a period of unrest when left-wing guerrillas were in constant battle with the Colombian army. Ironically, the industrial use of cannabis was a topic both sides favored, and both allowed Mr. Guzman access to the Cauca Mountains to grow cannabis. A timeline can be viewed at https://www.tallerlibre.org/historia In 2014, Mr. Guzman partnered with New Colombia Resources, Inc. (NCR) to form Sannabis SAS to develop a medical marijuana business. At the time, NCR President John Campo was making headlines promoting a movement to legalize cannabis in Colombia, https://www.semana.com/medicamentos-legales-derivados- del-cannabis-marihuana/199474/ From there, Sannabis was trained to work with indigenous tribes in the war-torn department of Cauca to help them cultivate their native plant and turn it into medicinal products. A constitutional sentence allowed native tribes to cultivate and process their native plants, such as cannabis, into finished products. For more information, visit www.sannabis.co.

Earlier this week it was reported that Tyson Fury may have been denied entry to the United States of America due to his alleged connection to Daniel Kinahan.

This news comes after boxing adviser Kinahan was sanctioned by the US Treasury, which named him a major figure in the Kinahan Organized Crime Group (KOCG).

Fury pictured with Kinahan in February

As it stands, there’s a $5 million reward for “information leading to the financial disruption of Kinahan’s criminal organization, or the arrest and/or conviction of” Kinahan and of its counterparts.

Reports then emerged from the Sunday World that Fury had been arrested as he tried to board his flight from the UK to the US by immigration officers.

‘The Gypsy King’ promoter Frank Warren responded to reports on talkSPORT’s Fight Night show and explained he was unaware of the incident.

“I do not know.” Warren said: ‘What I read was that he went to an airport and was refused boarding.

“As far as I know he didn’t go to any airport yesterday and was in Liverpool to see his cousin [Nathan Gorman] struggle.

“I haven’t spoken to him today [Saturday]. This is news to me.


Warren has promoted Fury since returning to boxing in 2018

Kinahan has advised a number of boxers, of which Fury is the most high-profile and ‘The Gypsy King’ even gave the Irishman a ‘big shout’ in 2020 for his help in facilitating a two-fight deal with his heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua who never ended up arriving.

Despite their ties, Fury has since tried to play down the relationship between the two, as he spoke ahead of his latest fight with Dillian Whyte.

“What a man does in his own business doesn’t concern me, I’m a boxer, I don’t get involved in anyone’s business at all,” Fury told Sky Sports.

“I don’t care what you’ve done, I’m only concerned with what I do, and I don’t do anything except boxing. End of.”

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Market Overview:

Money laundering is making sure that money that has been acquired illegally appears to have been obtained legitimately. In the United States, anti-money laundering (AML) laws are designed to combat money laundering, money laundering activities, and the financing of terrorism. Anti-money laundering policies target illicit activities, including market manipulation, trading in illegal goods, corruption of public funds, and tax evasion. Criminals often “launder” their money by moving it through a legitimate cash-based business. Businesses using these funds will report suspicious cash transactions. To prevent money laundering, laws and regulations are in place. The US Treasury Department has a comprehensive guide to anti-money laundering laws.

The celebrity treatment Conservatives are giving Kyle Rittenhouse, acquitted of all charges in the 2020 shooting deaths of two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, epitomizes the right’s long history of vigilante violence. Rittenhouse became a regular guest at events hosted by the conservative organization Turning Point USA, where he was more recently lionized as a desirable bachelor standing “strong in opposition to culture and evil.”

Vigilantes have long had such appeal to the right because they allow conservatives to highlight their own victimhood and cultivate a siege mentality, which rallies their troops to defeat political opponents. In the process, they dress up racist arguments in a seemingly colorblind plea for armed self-defense. Nowhere was this clearer than in the case of Bernhard Goetz in 1984.

In the mid to late 1960s, many white Americans began to see liberals as enemies. These voters were fed up with rising crime rates, liberal courts that they said let criminals off the hook and put them back on the streets, and a government that seemed indifferent to their own struggles in life. . White men, in particular, resented the liberal social transformations accomplished by the black and women’s rights movements.

The state of cities contributed to this anger as crime increased, riots broke out, and personal finances dried up in the late 1960s and 1970s.

New York City seemed to be at the epicenter of this urban decay. Faced with the two-headed monster of bloated social spending and dwindling local tax revenues and federal contributions, the city sank into bankruptcy in 1975. Many conservatives blamed minorities, whom they saw as unworthy and dependent on social services paid for by their taxes. New York City’s failures, writes historian Kim Phillips-Fein, fueled “the anti-government ethos that was already gaining national momentum in the 1970s.”

The anger of white Americans helped propel President Ronald Reagan to power, prevented ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, and ultimately spawned the War on Drugs.

It was in this context that Goetz became a right-wing hero. On December 22, 1984, the 37-year-old white electronics engineer shot and seriously injured four black teenagers – Barry Allen, James Ramseur, Darrell Cabey and Troy Canty – on the New York City subway after one of them asked for five dollars. With nowhere to escape, three of the four 18-19 year olds were hit by Goetz’s Smith & Wesson .38. Goetz then approached Cabey, who was lying face down, and said, “You seem fine, here’s another one,” before firing his final shot into the teenager’s back, severing his spinal cord. spinal.

The shooting and trial touched the nerves of white Americans who felt their security and financial security was under siege. The perceived decrease in public safety, along with the seemingly indifferent government, took center stage during Goetz’s trial and stoked his broad public support.

After the shooting, Goetz fled New York – blind to the fact that within hours he would be hailed nationwide by tabloids and galvanized audiences as the “subway vigilante.” Nine days after the shooting, he surrendered to a police station in Concord, NH. With his lanky posture and mousy appearance, to many, Goetz embodied the image of an abused white man who couldn’t stand it anymore. By taking matters into his own hands to maintain law and order, according to many, Goetz became the epitome of white American masculinity, which stood in stark contrast to the effeminate liberal state.

The way Goetz fit into the role turned him into a folk hero, earning frequent comparisons to actor Charles Bronson’s character in the 1974 vigilante film “Death Wish.” In the film, New York architect Paul Kersey avenges the murder of his wife and the rape of his daughter by killing bad guys to restore law and order.

The four teenagers, in turn, fell prey to racist assumptions about black crime — the very ideas that fueled the disastrous war on drugs in the years that followed. Many Americans never really considered the possibility that they might have been innocent victims. Conversely, many Goetz supporters sympathized and identified with him based on a shared sense of victimhood.

As fear of crime and victimization grew in the years leading up to the Goetz shooting, so did enthusiasm for gun ownership. Americans have found liberation in the growing number of neighborhood watch groups as well as the massive growth of the National Rifle Association.

Prosecutors charged Goetz with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment and possession of firearms. He claimed self-defense, and a mostly white, male jury acquitted him of all charges except unlawful possession of firearms.

The trial opened the floodgates to a heated debate over the right to armed self-defense and vigilantism that, in the minds of many commentators, grew out of racialized fears of crime. Conservative columnist Patrick Buchanan, a former speechwriter for President Richard M. Nixon who later became Reagan’s communications director, called the public support for Goetz “a sign of moral health.” In contrast, Les Payne, Newsday’s black editor, pointed out that Goetz had “dealed a blow to white manhood.”

The Reagan years had fueled the belief among many white men that liberal forces were neutralizing them and their power. They saw this attack as the driving force behind the decline of American society more broadly.

In a press conference two weeks after the shooting, Reagan widely denounced vigilantism as the collapse of civilization. Yet he also expressed compassion for those “who are constantly threatened by crime and feel that law and order does not particularly protect them”. Americans shouldn’t blame the police for rising crime rates, the president said, but rather a “justice system that has been overzealous in protecting the rights of criminals and forgetting about the victim.” .

Similarly, Sen. Alfonse D’Amato (RN.Y.) explained in a New York Times op-ed that support for the shooter was rooted in shared fears and frustrations. “We live in fear. We are the oppressed,” he sympathized. Instead of Goetz, he suggested, the four teenagers “who tried to harass him” should have been tried.

Fanning public fears of violent crime while evoking victimization—both concepts being deeply racialized—politicians such as D’Amato and Reagan created the fertile ground on which vigilante justice and violence could flourish.

This form of rhetoric, with its dual emphasis on self-reliance and the sanctity of victims’ rights, encouraged white Americans to arm themselves as a strategy to take responsibility and compensate for a neglectful state. By fueling the narrative that the state was failing Americans—while actively participating in cutting social programs—these politicians also found a way to successfully unite white Americans behind their cause for smaller government, but more severely punitive.

The right’s strategic embrace of color blindness—promising an end to racial discrimination while ultimately cloaking racial appeals behind seemingly racially neutral language—has prevented conservatives from blatantly encouraging Goetz. However, the new right’s subtle victims’ rights rhetoric created a framework for vigilante violence and tough-on-crime politics that continues to resonate today.

When Rittenhouse, then 17, shot and killed two men and injured another during protests in Kenosha in 2020, it didn’t take long for Republicans to praise him. Some GOP members offered him congressional internships while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis claimed that Rittenhouse had done “what we should want citizens to do in such a situation: step forward to defend the community against mob violence”.

Goetz and Rittenhouse became famous political causes. Right-wing conservatives have vehemently backed both men, even raising money for their legal defenses. They did this because they recognized that the vigilante hero narrative serves as a political strategy to attract white Americans. Empathy with perceived white victimization while endorsing armed self-defense creates a sense of unity between Republicans and their aggrieved base. This rhetoric channels this grievance into political campaigns and battles as well as a shared sense of identity.

However, it also fuels the very feelings that fan the flames of vigilantism. Fueling gun enthusiasm among their base while opposing any restrictions on guns, conservative politicians have contributed to the devastating epidemic of gun violence plaguing America, all in the name of political gain. .

The fight against financial terrorism requires all the tools in the box https://atosvictimsgroup.co.uk/the-fight-against-financial-terrorism-requires-all-the-tools-in-the-box/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 19:12:01 +0000 https://atosvictimsgroup.co.uk/the-fight-against-financial-terrorism-requires-all-the-tools-in-the-box/ By Said Patel, Group Director at Eastnets, the compliance, payment and anti-fraud experts, explains how to protect against terrorist financing in 2022 Meeting the requirements of ever-changing anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-terrorist financing (CTF) laws, regulations and guidelines is no small feat.

By Said Patel, Group Director at Eastnets, the compliance, payment and anti-fraud experts, explains how to protect against terrorist financing in 2022

Meeting the requirements of ever-changing anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-terrorist financing (CTF) laws, regulations and guidelines is no small feat. The depth and breadth of requirements from such a range of organizations can be daunting to even the most seasoned industry experts.

The first place they might look when it comes to anti-money laundering is the sanctions and politically exposed persons lists, to make sure the latest regulatory requirements are incorporated into the financial institution‘s watch lists. .

There is a wide range of international and domestic regulations to follow, including the United Nations Sanctions List, the United States OFAC Consolidated Sanctions List, the United States OFAC SDN List, the EU Financial Sanctions List, UK Government Sanctions List and Monetary Sanctions Authority of Singapore. Listing.

Other notable AML guidelines include standards developed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the intergovernmental organization created to stop money laundering and terrorist financing. It aligns standards across the 36 Member States by regularly issuing guidance to financial authorities.

There are 40 FATF Recommendations on AML and CFT. This provides a comprehensive set of countermeasures covering the criminal justice system, law enforcement, financial system, regulation, and international cooperation. These have been endorsed and adopted by individual countries, regional and international bodies.

Among the FATF recommendations, FATF 10 stands out for its requirements for customer due diligence measures prohibiting financial institutions from trading with anonymous or fictitious accounts. Another important recommendation is FATF 16, known as the travel rule, it requires countries to collect identifying information from originators and recipients of domestic and cross-border wire transfers. The objective is to improve the traceability of transactions.

Added to this are the UN resolutions, the USA Patriot Act and the EU 6e Anti-Money Laundering Directive. The latter introduces the harmonization of AML/CFT rules in EU Member States, creating a new Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA) to combat money laundering and promote cooperation.

Despite the complexity and plethora of different regulations, it is crucial to ensure that financial institutions follow the rules. Their integrity and reputation, as well as that of the markets in which they operate, are at stake.

Financial institutions should ensure that they invest in appropriate systems and controls to detect and report suspicious activity. This means that nothing can be left to chance. New, advanced financial crime risk management solutions are needed to address the dynamic evolution and increasing complexity of watchlists, AML rules, SAR and STR reporting requirements.

A technological solution

The question is, what should financial institutions be looking for in their attempt to stay compliant? The answer is to understand the important elements of the rules and then ensure that the systems are fully up to date and fully aware of the regulatory requirements.

In the case of AML and CTF, the key elements are the watchlists that underpin the compliance verification systems. They include details of every organization or person subject to sanction against them, including those on the Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) list.

Most manual watchlist updates occur once a day, leaving financial institutions exposed to breaches between the time an entity is placed on a watchlist and the time it begins screening. There must be instant compliance to avoid violations and fines.

This can be achieved with real-time updates based on the blockchain. As soon as a country, individual or entity is added or removed from a watch list, updates are transmitted securely to AML systems. This means that shielding solutions are always up to date, guaranteeing the highest level of protection.

But that’s only half the job. The other puts watchlists into action. Screening and monitoring software should utilize up-to-date watch lists by detecting potential criminal behavior in real-time or in batch mode.

It must be able to monitor all transactions for AML including verification of all financial traffic including different message types such as SWIFT ISO 20022, SEPA, ACH, Target RTGS and Ripple. It should be able to quickly and comprehensively filter everything from huge databases to names, files and messages against an unlimited number of sophisticated lists and rules.

Of course, this can create a huge amount of “noise” and potentially problematic transactions, which could be false positives. There must be a mechanism to monitor them and take automatic action based on the rules established by the financial institution.

As the process continues, systems should learn from previous decisions and automatically replay them on future detections, reducing false positives and the time and effort required to clear detections. Of course, there must also be reporting and auditing functions so that regulators can see how decisions have been made and what actions have been taken.

By following this model where watchlists are always 100% up-to-date and then efficiently actioned using advanced software capable of making the right decisions, financial institutions stand a chance of coping with the enormous pressure exerted on them by the LBC and the CFT.

And one thing is certain. The landscape will only be more complex, transactions harder to detect and financial criminals more determined. In this context, the fight against financial criminals and terrorism requires all the tools in the box.

How long can we let our children down? https://atosvictimsgroup.co.uk/how-long-can-we-let-our-children-down/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 01:27:39 +0000 https://atosvictimsgroup.co.uk/how-long-can-we-let-our-children-down/ In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by world leaders with a firm commitment to end all forms of child labor by 2025.

In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by world leaders with a firm commitment to end all forms of child labor by 2025. As we mark the World Day Against child labour, we realize how far we are from achieving our goals. objective. The clock is turning.

In June last year, the International Labor Organization (ILO) and UNICEF sounded the alarm. They announced the first shocking increase in the number of working children around the world in two decades. This happened during the four years of adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals between 2016 and 2019.

The global estimates published by the ILO and UNICEF are staggering to say the least. At the start of 2020, 160 million children – including 63 million girls and 97 million boys – were engaged in child labour. This corresponds to approximately 1 in 10 children.

Of these, while nearly 79 million children were engaged in hazardous work, the number of children engaged in child labor in sub-Saharan Africa alone soared to 86 million. And all of this happened even as the world grew $10 trillion richer before the pandemic even started.

All of this has had a devastating impact on the health, well-being, safety and holistic development of these children. We let them down and how.

Covid-19 has only made the situation worse. Growing economic shocks, declining family incomes and prolonged school closures have put the lives of nearly 9 million more children worldwide at risk of being pushed into child labor by the end of this year .

The fact is, whether in Ghana or Guatemala, in Dhaka or Delhi, children continue to bear the brunt. In India alone, according to the 2011 census, the total number of working children stood at 10.13 million. However, the crackdown on child labor leaves much to be desired. According to the latest Crime in India 2020 report released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), only 705 child laborers were rescued through the 476 FIRs registered under the Child Labor (Prohibition and Regulation) Act.

While the statistics hold up a mirror, the truth is that – despite millions of dollars of investment, countless policies and programmatic interventions – child labor has increased, making the 2025 target even more elusive, amplifying thus the gap between planning and benefit transfer.

Africa, for example, is home to more than half of the child labor in the world, more than the total number of children in the United States and Europe. It is because of the systemic inequalities in our global order, the brunt of which is borne by the children of Africa, and is a manifestation of our discriminatory mindset. This means depriving African children of their fair share in the world’s policies and financial resources, inadequate representation of global representation of the South in international institutions, and the deprioritization of the issue of child labor in our social and political narratives.

We cannot pretend to defend the SDGs when in its first four years we have reversed the progress made over the decades. Our words and our promises are meaningless and have no meaning for a child who is suffering. If we fail our children, we have failed as a generation.

Is it so hard to understand what 17-year-old Tara Banjara reiterated at the 5th World Conference on the Elimination of Child Labor held in Durban last month? Sharing the stage with ILO Director-General Guy Ryder, she recounted how she was rescued from child labor and pursued her dreams. Determined to become a police officer, Tara underscored how much we need to change our mindset on the assumption that the only place for children from disadvantaged communities is the quagmire of child labor instead of schools.

A promising lawyer, Amar Lal, who was rescued from a brick oven by Bachpan Bachao Andolan, spoke of yet another dimension in Durban. Just a fraction of the money spent on buying weapons and building military infrastructure could go a long way in tackling the scourge of child labor, he said.

Child rights advocate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi sees social protection as one of the most powerful tools in the fight against child labour. Demanding a fair share for children in our policies and resource allocation, he urged world leaders at the Durban conference to work towards direct social protection for children, which will not only ensure access and continuity of education, but will also protect children against multiple risks. and unpredictability, which can send them back to exploitation in an instant.

Considering that 74% of children worldwide and 90% of children in low-income countries live without social protection coverage, this should now become the guiding principle. Just $53 billion a year – less than 10 days of military spending – would help extend social protection to all children and pregnant women in low-income countries.

In Western countries, where the majority of spending is on social security, child labor has virtually disappeared. Even in the developing world, we have evidence in Brazil, targeting areas where child labor was high – Conditional cash transfers to households in the poorest quintile, with reductions in child labor and increased school attendance all over Brazil.

The Mid Day Meal program in India has resulted in over 95% enrollment, as well as a significant impact in reducing stunting.

It can’t be business as usual. We know the problem. We know the solutions. What we need is courage, compassion and the collective will to make better decisions and to hold ourselves and each other accountable.

Unless children are integrated into our policies and budgets, the scourge of child labor cannot be eliminated in isolation. No development program is feasible if millions of children are trapped in factories, farms or mines.

This is the only way to end child labour. No economic growth will be sustainable if a million and more of our current and future generation are in slavery.

Can we continue to disappoint our children?

The duo who star in USA Network’s current most-watched original series, Chrisley knows bestwere convicted of multiple counts of bank fraud and tax evasion by a federal jury in downtown Atlanta today, according to multiple local reports.

Sentencing is set for October 6 at 9:30 a.m. ET. The couple face up to 30 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors have charged Todd and Julie Chrisley with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax evasion. Julie Chrisley was additionally charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice.

Specifically, they allegedly defrauded local banks on at least $30 million in loans. Lawyer Annalize Peters said the couple also actively hid millions of dollars they won. Chrisley knows best. The reality TV couple are further accused of giving up more than $20 million they owe by filing for bankruptcy. The Chrisleys’ tax evasion is said to date back to 2009, and after the show debuted in 2014, they were accused of using their 7C productions to evade taxes.

“As today’s result shows, when you lie, cheat and steal, justice is blind to your fame, fortune and position,” said FBI Atlanta Special Agent in Charge Keri Farley. “Ultimately, driven by greed, the verdict of guilty on all counts for these three defendants proves once again that financial crimes don’t pay.” (Editor’s note: The third defendant is a man named Peter Tarantino.)

USA network renewed Chrisley knows best last month for a tenth season. The series will launch new episodes for season nine on June 23. The United States did not comment on today’s decision.

The Chrisleys were released on bail, but the judge stipulated in a court document obtained by Deadline that they must participate in a location surveillance program and house arrest, and are responsible for “all or part of the costs of the program based on your ability to pay as determined by the probation officer.

Bitcoin mining funneled more than $186 million to Iran-based cryptocurrency services between 2015 and 2021, according to a crypto crime report by Chainalysis. The report states that illegal bitcoin miners account for around 85% of cryptocurrency activity in Iran, which was also confirmed by the Iranian President.

According to information from the report, many exchanges, which operated in jurisdictions without sanctions, continued to provide financial services to Iranian companies. In 2021, services outside Iran received $1.16 billion from Iranian services, double the value received in 2020. Between January 1 and December 31, 2021, mining pool outflows from cryptocurrency to Iranian services averaged $343,000 worth of cryptocurrency per day, of which, bitcoin-based transactions accounted for about 80%.

According to the report, the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said that U.S.-based companies and individuals are prohibited from conducting transactions with Iranian companies, including its financial institutions and its central bank. In theory, U.S.-based companies could have been subject to sanctions or criminal prosecution if found in violation of OFAC sanctions. Iran is fueled by the possibility of having low-cost electricity to profitably mine cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. In 2019, the Iranian government created a licensing regime for cryptocurrency mining, and in March 2021, a think tank associated with the Iranian president’s office highlighted the benefits of the regime in a report.

Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT), which is Chainalysis’s cryptocurrency compliance software, allows companies to monitor transactional exposure to Iranian entities while government agencies can identify such type of transaction counterparties to the help from Chainalysis Reactor, which provides insights into blockchain-based transactions.
