Blukite bills itself as a next-generation “merchant-centric” payment network based on open banking technologies and API. The platform is operated by the UK-registered Blukite Network Limited.
The website does not provide information about the operators or regulatory conditions. There are also no testimonials and reviews yet. Therefore, we include blukite in our “Orange Compliance” list and advise merchants to be cautious.
We have found that the individuals at blukite have also previously worked at the Viola Group, which laundered money for the OneCoin Crypto Ponzi scheme. Christopher Hamilton is expected to be indicted in the U.S. for this.
We, therefore, put blukite on our “Black Compliance” list.
