December 2023 Media Report

, January 4, 2024

The holidays, and their inevitable run up to the New Year, can be a disorienting time. A period of reflection, visiting with friends and family, and, for those who elect to do so, extended revelry. Why shouldn’t it be? After working hard the whole year, rolling over with a fresh slate should present a moment to exhale and reassess. But even in a climate of late-Q4 yuletide quicksand, our commitment to providing best-in-class crypto solutions never lost its sparkle, no matter what was in the punch.

Like the perennial reliability of stockings along the mantle, CEX.IO was once again featured in Business Insider for being among the “Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges of December 2023.” While our ranking remains frozen at 4.45/5, our continued facilitation of high-quality, user-centric experiences are the rainbow refractions in the ice. In fact, the reputational endurance and honor of being featured alongside our distinguished colleagues is a well-wrapped gift in and of itself. But in the spirit of resolutions, here’s to moving the needle up in the coming months.

In keeping with the seasonal camaraderie, CEX.IO’s Affiliate Program also received a nice write-up on CoinMarketCap, courtesy of The Coin Republic. The post assessed several similar industry initiatives, and highlighted unique features from each to give participants a snow-capped view of available offerings. Plus, the informational rundown of how affiliate programs work provided helpful context for participants deciding the best course of action for a successful crypto journey.

This commitment to centering the user experience was also a key ingredient of CEX.IO’s recent partnership with crypto fraud watchdog, CYBERA. Despite their inherent joys, the holidays can also be a time of rampant fraud, as grinches seek to exploit festive goodwill. Our Global MLRO and Head of Financial Crime, Mark Taylor, was quoted in Yahoo! Finance after the company announcement was picked up by the outlet. Along with maintaining a database of incidents, and a veritable naughty list of wallet addresses, CYBERA helps provide the materials necessary for victims of fraud to pursue legal action. With the ongoing collaboration having reached a critical milestone in exposing bad actors, and supporting affected parties, our resolve in the New Year remains fixed on further improving user protections.

Lastly, CEX.IO’s CEO and Founder, Oleksandr Lutskevych, returned to the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle to offer timely guidance to Web3 builders on securing user data. In a relationship more intimate than even mistletoe can muster, keeping customer information away from prying hands and eyes is paramount to establishing trust. Ever the dispenser of measured wisdom, Alex made the most of his visit by once again emphasizing the importance of meeting, when not outright exceeding, community expectations.

Yahoo! FInance: CEX.IO, CYBERA Partnership Reaches Milestone in Fraud Prevention and Crypto Asset Recovery

CEX.IO’s Global MLRO and Head of Financial Crime, Mark Taylor, was quoted in Yahoo! Finance following the announcement of the company’s successful collaboration with fraud watchdog, CYBERA. Over the three months prior to our news release date, CEX.IO and CYBERA aided 100 targeted customers, and escalated 95% of cases to the proper authorities, with 30% resulting in account freezes or other crucial steps toward asset recovery.

“’Nurturing a safe community requires rooting out fraud, and CYBERA reinforces and expands on our capacity to achieve these efforts,’ said Mark Taylor, Global MLRO and Head of Financial Crime at CEX.IO. ‘In our brief collaboration, we’ve provided critical resources to victims seeking justice and recompense, while making significant strides to dissuade future, would-be criminals.’”

Cointelegraph: Securing user data: 11 practical and effective tips for Web3 companies

CEO and Founder, Oleksandr Lutskevych, returned to the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle to offer emerging Web3 projects critical guidance on securing user data. Noting the sacred trust that should accompany safeguarding sensitive information, Alex encouraged entrepreneurs to arrive honorably when choosing how to structure internal processes.

“When building a company from the ground up, some phases require a certain “fake it until you make it” ethos that’s often necessary for survival. However, securing user data is not an area to apply such logic to or to put on the back burner in lieu of extending proper resources. In any Web3 enterprise, the user base is your bread and butter, and holding their data is a trusted bond. It should not be taken lightly.”
