Welcome to the Know Your Transaction (KYT) API. The KYT API enables clients to monitor transactions at scale by generating risk scores for user addresses.
Coinbase KYT powers crypto compliance for governments, financial institutions, and crypto businesses by connecting cryptocurrency transactions to real-world entities.
It does so by using public blockchain attribution data, monitoring risk on millions of addresses, and investigating fraudulent activity across Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more.
