Binance Labs, the venture capital arm and incubator arm of crypto exchange Binance, said on Nov. 15 that it has invested in ARKM, the native token of the “deanonymizing” blockchain platform Arkham.

The company said in a blog post on the website that the investment aims to support “on-chain insights at scale across the blockchain ecosystem.”

“Arkham’s proprietary technology advances how on-chain intelligence is produced and shared,” Binance Labs investment director Alex Odagiu told Cointelegraph. The platform allows individuals or organizations to do their own research, in addition to enabling users to participate in the intelligence economy with rewards powered by the ARKM token, the executive added.

Arkham’s mission is to deanonymize blockchain transactions and strengthen self-regulation by enabling users to see anyone’s blockchain transactions using its intelligence platform, Binance Labs said in the post. Based on the proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) engine known as ULTRA — which “algorithmically matches addresses with real-world entities” — the Arkham platform enables users to track entity relationships and flow funds, the announcement noted.

Binance Labs also mentioned that Arkham introduced one of the world’s first on-chain intelligence exchanges, the Arkham Intel Exchange. The tool is a “decentralized intelligence economy” that matches buyers and sellers of blockchain intelligence and allows users to generate intelligence to capture value for their work in exchange for the ARKM token.
