Cryptocurrency prices have risen significantly over the last year, thus, as its popularity rises, so do the scams involving it. Luckily, cryptocurrencies are not as anonymous and esoteric as some believe.
There are many misconceptions about what cryptocurrencies are and what information is possibly obtainable from the transactions involving them. Nowadays, criminal individuals and organizations have turned to the use of those virtual currencies because, supposedly, it brings them the anonymity they need. Additionally, law enforcement agencies are quickly finding themselves left behind by the rapid evolution of the blockchain and the various new methods used by those criminals. Investigating on the blockchain is time and resource-consuming, hence, high-profile law enforcement agencies in the USA and other countries have instead resorted to the private sector in order to save money and resources. For now, they have reached the conclusion that training their own agents to be capable of tracing cryptocurrencies and, at the same time, to be updated on the current methods of criminal groups, might be expensive and could take plenty of time.
We understand the challenges inherent in dealing with cases involving stolen cryptocurrencies, especially for law firms and other companies whose activities involve their use. They are facing these challenges primarily due to the lack of regulation present in this field, as well as due to the relative inexperience of the research units present within law enforcement agencies.
