In a bid to comply with regulations in place while still providing traders with a secure platform to use, Bittrex will integrate Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT) on its platform. Though its move is aimed at complying with new regulations put forth by FATF, the KYT solution will be of great use to Bittrex.
