- Notabene, the leader in pre-transaction decision-making and Travel Rule compliance solutions, today released its third annual State of Crypto Travel Rule Compliance Report 2024. This year's findings highlight a remarkable compliance milestone: 96% of surveyed financial and crypto institutions are now compliant or on the path to compliance this year, showcasing significant industry-wide progress.

Based on a survey of 70 leading institutions worldwide, the report reveals a substantial increase in regulatory diligence and a commitment to the Travel Rule—an anti-money laundering framework introduced by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to virtual asset service providers (VASPs) in 2019. This framework aims to bolster transparency and security in crypto transactions. Notable findings from the report include a 187.5% surge in firms restricting non-compliant transactions and a significant leap in due diligence practices, with 64% of entities now verifying counterparties before transacting.

Pelle Braendgaard, CEO of Notabene, reflects on the progress, stating, "The industry is making great strides towards enhanced security and regulatory compliance. Embracing the insights from the latest State of Crypto Travel Rule Compliance Report will further drive our collective progress towards a unified financial ecosystem."

The report also uncovered that significant challenges, such as protocol interoperability, remain despite these advancements. A significant portion of respondents identified the lack of protocol interoperability as their primary hurdle to full compliance. Additionally, 37% reported never having received a Travel Rule message,  further highlighting interoperability issues. Full compliance for the 37% of VASPs that have not received any Travel Rule messages could bring a significant and potentially disproportionate impact on business, as it would require them not to accept any deposits.

The report offers actionable insights for navigating the complexities of global compliance, advocating for flexible regulatory frameworks and improved technology solution interoperability.
