Frequently Asked Questions

594. Is it possible to query a digital currency address using OFAC’s Sanctions List Search tool?

Answer

Yes, it is possible to query for digital currency addresses using OFAC’s Sanctions List Search tool. Users of the tool may search for digital currency addresses by inputting the hash value into the "ID #" field and then clicking "Search." The ID # field does not use fuzzy logic, so only exact matches will be returned when searching for digital currency addresses with the Sanctions List Search tool.

Alternatively, OFAC’s SDN List and other OFAC sanctions lists are available in a number of file formats and downloads, which can be used to identify and screen for listed digital currency addresses. Additional information on OFAC's list file formats and downloads, can be accessed by visiting the FAQ Topic titled "Information on list file formats and downloads."
