Criminals often choose cryptocurrency for fraud, money laundering, and other illicit activity to evade detection by law enforcement. Without the right tools, it is difficult for investigators to identify and stop criminal activity. Chainalysis Reactor powers investigations with real-time cryptocurrency intelligence, tracing transactions to

named services and detecting illicit activity as it happens. Trusted globally by law enforcement agencies, Reactor is used to link real-world entities to their digital counterparts and combat crime across missions.
