What’s new? Chainalysis, a blockchain analytics company, will begin supporting the Lightning Network in February 2022. The compatibility with Lightning will be available to customers of the Chainalysis KYT (Know Your Transaction) software product. KYT helps the virtual asset service providers (VASPs), such as exchanges, to identify risk patterns and illicit activity.

What are the advantages? VASPs will now be able to allow bitcoin deposits and withdrawals from the Lightning node in a compliant manner. KYT will be able to provide the Lightning transaction alerts and pre-check for withdrawals, the company added. Pratima Arora, Chief Product Officer at Chainalysis, said:

“By enabling our customers to compliantly support Lightning transactions, we hope to grow the network's popularity and help it scale.”
