Attribution is the process of attributing otherwise pseudonymous data (account numbers, addresses, etc.) to real-world people, entities, and events. Attribution data points on cryptocurrency addresses include information such as entity type, account custodian, contract controllers, and other metadata. CipherTrace Attribution aggregates and curates millions of open source and private references, geolocation data, decoy deception data, and human intelligence and expertise gained from deep relationships with regulators, law enforcement, and exchanges to link a cryptocurrency address to an entity or event.
