Introducing Dark Web API: Tackling the $2 Billion Dark Web Crypto Disaster with Data

September 21, 2022

For investigators and security professionals working on the dark web, it can be both difficult and time-consuming to even navigate, much less investigate leads. The dark web is not well indexed, and in the absence of a convenient search engine, many struggles to comb through leads in the dark web, spending days or even weeks while trails go cold.

Today, AnChain.AI is proud to announce the launch of Darkweb API – a powerful new feature built into our existing BEI API to help you navigate the dark web and gather intel, so you can focus on the work that matters.

The Darkweb API is a dark web search engine for digital asset investigation, allowing users to effortlessly query wallet addresses across the four most used blockchains on the darknet:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Dogecoin (DOGE)
  • Monero (XMR)

You can query onion sites, and websites on the dark web with the ‘.onion’ domain name extension.  Our API will do the heavy lifting for you, automatically combing through the dark web and equipping you with the necessary insights to help you reach investigative breakthroughs. A simple search of any cryptocurrency wallet address will quickly reveal any dark web associations, such as email and IP addresses.

Our intelligence database provides the most up-to-date information on dark web cryptocurrency threats, frequently flagging scams hours and even days before they hit mainstream news outlets. In order to further enrich our dark web intelligence and enhance the efforts of our threat intelligence team, we are working with the Anti-Human Trafficking Cryptocurrency Consortium (ATCC) to better identify risks related to human trafficking, child exploitation, and child sexual abuse materials (CSAM) within cryptocurrency transactions.
