Elliptic integrates ChatGPT to bolster crypto risk detection


Crypto risk management firm Elliptic has integrated ChatGPT to ramp up its accuracy and speed in detecting crypto threats – a move which comes amid other crypto firms reporting mixed results in its implementation.

Elliptic provides blockchain analytics for crypto asset compliance and assesses risks associated with crypto wallets, virtual asset service providers and crypto transactions.

According to a June 1 statement, Elliptic will be utilizing ChatGPT in its off-chain intelligence and research operations to explore new risk factors in an “entirely new way.”

It was noted that the primary reasons for integrating ChatGPT was to improve accuracy and scalability. Elliptic believes it will allow researchers and investigators to tackle these new risk factors “in higher volumes and at a quicker speed than ever before.”

Jackson Hull, the CTO of Elliptic, stated that its implementation will assist in exposing unseen risks:

“Our customers come to us to know exactly their risk exposure. Integrating ChatGPT allows us to scale up our intelligence, giving our customers a view on risk they can’t get anywhere else.”

Several crypto firms have implemented ChatGPT into its operations in recent times, yielding mixed results.

Cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com launched a ChatGPT-based AI user assistant, Amy, on May 3, in an effort to help inform users about the industry, including real-time token prices, projects, and historical events.

While a Crypto.com spokesperson told Cointelegraph that AI has the potential for “massive potential implications” in the crypto industry, they expect a lot of feedback from this AI pilot, which will be “integrated into future upgrades.”

However, cryptocurrency derivatives exchange Bitget has already identified “cracks” in the accuracy of ChatGPT’s responses.

Gracy Chen, managing director of crypto derivatives exchange Bitget, reported to Cointelegraph on June 1 that while Bitget was initially impressed by ChatGPT to handle routine customer inquiries, errors were spotted when given “more complex queries.”

“Despite being trained on extensive data, ChatGPT sometimes offers misleading, biased or incomplete information, as a recent internal test reminded us” Chen noted.

Meanwhile, Solana Labs announced on April 26 that Solana (SOL) users will soon be able to interact with the Solana network directly from ChatGPT – enabling them to check wallet balances, transfer tokens and purchase NFTs – through an open-source plugin created for ChatGPT.

Solana Labs is yet to announce when this feature will be publicly available.

Cointelegraph reached out to Ellipti for comment but did not receive a response by the time of publication.
