Attention Crypto Scammers: AI is on the Hunt – BeInCrypto

Blockchain security firm is leveraging the recent artificial intelligence (AI) hype to detect crypto scams and illicit blockchain fund flows.

The firms CEO, Dr. Victor Fang, hopes a new framework called Web3 SOC will reduce the seven-day detection window for 2022s smart contract exploits.

The company wants to close the gap between Web3 and traditional cybersecurity breaches. Web3 projects only respond to hacks almost 40 days after the exploit, compared to the five-hour response time for conventional cyber breaches. agrees that the smart contract audit is the first step of a comprehensive risk management framework. It uses machine learning to detect smart contract anomalies, together with a multichain analytics platform.

According to Fang, funds lost to smart contract exploits in 2022 totaled $4 billion, costing victims about $200 million per incident.

Notable hacks include Harmonys Horizon Bridge exploit, which cost victims over $600 million, and the $566 million Binance Smart Chain hack.

Crypto scams often convert stolen funds to censorship-resistant cryptocurrency. Hackers later pass the funds through a mixer, like Tornado Cash, to break the links between the funds source and destinations.

Forensic firms like Elliptic, Chainalysis, and PeckShield can provide transaction data to train AI models to detect suspicious transactions. uses geometric machine learning to learn typical crypto user behaviors and identify anomalies.
