FinTech and Cryptocurrency
Not all persons using cryptocurrencies are criminals, however, cryptocurrencies are the vehicle of choice for the new, sophisticated criminal, to launder illicit funds.
The compliance industry was shaken to the core with the advent of the Blockchain and subsequently the introduction of Cryptocurrency. The global industry is fast-paced and constantly updating.
Blockchain can be simply described as a growing list of records which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data.
Cryptocurrency is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses strong cryptography to secure financial transactions, control the creation of additional units, and verify the transfer of assets. The first and most common cryptocurrencies currently traded worldwide are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, among many others that are being created every day.
Cryptocurrencies open the door for many new, creative possibilities in the realm of currency. Early on, cryptocurrencies attracted many bad actors looking to exploit the young, fragile industry. Mass adoption of crypto was first accepted on the Dark Web. Criminals use anonymity to their advantage, using privacy coins to further distort the trail of unlawful money.
