Harpie, the crypto security solutions provider with the most advanced on-chain firewall that stops thefts, hacks and scams, announces a new enterprise tool, Background Check API. The API detects scammer addresses on Ethereum by analyzing huge amounts of on-chain data. Using Background Check API, crypto projects and platforms can prevent their users from interacting with scammers, without adding any friction to the user experience.

Crypto¬†scams are now a billion-dollar industry. With each transaction, users are confronted with substantial risks ‚Äď placing the burden of evading attacks such as website hijackings, social engineering scams, and phishing assaults primarily on individual users. To tackle this growing issue, Harpie’s API allows¬†crypto¬†and blockchain projects to seamlessly integrate these tools into their platforms, enhancing security by design and safeguarding their users.

“Crypto¬†enterprises and their users face relentless targeting by¬†crypto¬†scams, exposing vulnerabilities that can undermine trust and financial security,” said¬†Daniel Chong, co-founder & CEO of Harpie. “To combat this pervasive threat, Harpie is dedicated to stopping¬†crypto¬†theft. We have developed an engine that empowers¬†crypto¬†platforms to join this effort. The assets in your¬†crypto¬†wallet should be as safe as the money in your bank account. We created Harpie’s Background Check API to arm Web3 projects with critical tools to build secure and scam-free¬†crypto¬†experiences bringing that peace of mind to users.”

The Background Check API returns human-readable security analysis of transactions, addresses, and contracts and provides security recommendations based on the data. The API tracks the latest attack vectors and has data on over 2 million known cyber criminals, honeypot addresses, and NFT wash traders.

Revoke.Cash, a popular security tool that helps users prevent common¬†crypto¬†scams by regularly revoking active allowances, uses Harpie’s Background Check API to power its platform’s data logs and collect the details that it shares with users before they sign allowances.

Harpie’s data engine also powers Harpie’s new¬†Address Scanner, a free tool for individuals that allows anyone to scan an¬†Ethereum¬†address for suspicious or malicious activity like phishing or cybercrime. The Address Scanner examines the transaction history of a specific address, checking the address against databases of known criminals and running an analysis on transaction patterns, such as who the address has interacted with in the past.

Developers building Web3 solutions or platforms can use the Background Check API to run background checks on up to 3000 addresses daily for¬†$450¬†per month. Custom API packages are available for enterprises that want to integrate the API into their platform code.
