Understanding Bitcoins and Cryptocurrency Technologies

Mining, Blockchaining and Investigative Techniques

Published 1 month, 1 week ago

Objective

When a new technology is created, criminals are among the first to embrace it and use it for their purposes. This happens with cryptocurrencies, and particularly with bitcoins. The use of bitcoin allows quick and cheap transactions and its flows are difficult to monitor and trace.
This online seminar will provide participants with an understanding of how bitcoin works, how transactions can be analysed and the special investigative techniques that can be applied. During the sessions participants will be immersed in a simulated investigation and will learn to analyse the blockchain to trace the proceeds of a crime.

  • Latest technical developments in cryptocurrencies
  • Blockchain and mining
  • Practical (mis)use of cryptocurrencies
  • Search and seizure
  • Investigative techniques
