When it comes to the crypto and DeFi ecosystem, one of the biggest challenges is the issue of wash trades. It’s so common that it has become sort of an open secret – everybody knows that it happens, yet they can’t do much about it. That is about to change though as a new project aimed at detecting and flagging wash trades has gone live. Scour by bitsCrunch aims to curb the menace of wash trades by combining the power of Artificial Intelligence with blockchain technology.

What is Scour?

It’s a new AI-based agent that aims to detect the manipulation of price and volume in NFT tokens. According to bitsCrunch, they are building a detailed knowledge graph of all the NFT transactions that take place on a marketplace. The graph will include a history of all transfers, wallet addresses, reward token distributions, etc., and it will then be used to educate an algorithm about the nature of suspicious transactions. As more and more transactions take place on the network, the graph will become larger and algorithm smarter… and that’s how Scour may eventually become the tool of choice for preventing wash trades.
