high_risk_address error message

Cryptopay runs screening of destination addresses before process withdraw requests. In case you submit a cryptocurrency address that is connected to a resource which is known for its illicit activities, we will return a 422 error:

  "error": {
    "code": "high_risk_address",
    "message": "We were unable to process your request as the address of the recipient may be associated with resource primarily used for unlawful activities",
    "details": []
  "meta": {
    "request_id": "d38974a2b27235018b06fa56bd1ed2bb"

This means that we will not be able to process your request to send cryptocurrency to that address.

We recommend you to make your Fraud Prevention / Transaction Monitoring teams aware of such response from us so that they take appropriate actions in terms of AML/CTF regulations and risk control procedures.
