What Is the Taint?

The taint refers to the percentage of cryptocurrency in an account that can be traced back to another account.

It represents the level of association or connection between different cryptocurrency transactions and addresses.

Taint analysis is often used in blockchain forensics to track the flow of funds and identify the origin or destination of specific cryptocurrency transactions.

By analyzing the taint, investigators can gain insights into the relationships between different accounts and potentially uncover illicit activities or suspicious transactions.
