Maple Incorporates TRM Labs technology, continues to ensure safety is top priority

Maple’s top priority is to ensure the safety and security of the protocol and its users. That’s why we continually audit and review our code and compliance processes. One such recent development is incorporating TRM Labs technology to ensure illegal activities have no place on the protocol.

TRM Labs combines on-chain data and real-world investigations to identify financial crime and other harmful activities. We have taken a common-sense approach by tailoring the screening only to block wallets that are owned or associated with illegal activities such as sanctions, terrorism financing, hacked or stolen funds, ransomware, human trafficking, and child sexual abuse material (CSAM).

These automated checks by TRM Labs are run on all wallets wishing to deposit into public pools on Maple. It is important to note that Maple has no ability to see ownership behind the wallet, and our terms of service and treatment of data and privacy do not change.

On the Maple app we notify all users that their wallet will be screened prior to deposit, as can be seen below.

If a wallet does not meet compliance standards the user will receive a notification that the deposit has been blocked.

FAQs

Why was my wallet blocked?

If your wallet has been blocked then it does not meet compliance standards, which means TRM’s analytics have indicated that it has engaged in illegal activity, or associated with a direct counterparty that has engaged in illegal activity.

Maple does not control TRM Labs or their independent assessments. Please also note that their determinations, or ours, are not being reported to law enforcement.

What to do if you’re unfairly blocked?

We do not anticipate many errors, but they are always possible. You can email contact@maple.finance to enquire about the process and the Maple team will get in touch.

Are there any changes to Maple’s privacy and data collection terms?

There are no changes to our terms and conditions regarding data practices.

For any further questions reach out to the Maple team on our Discord server.
