Cryptocurrencies are disrupting traditional finance and, over the last few years, we have seen that they became increasingly popular. Indeed, more and more individuals as well as corporations and financial institutions are using crypto. But, cryptocurrencies can also be used for ill purposes such as fraud, theft, money laundering, or asset hiding for instance. Such incidents often require performing deep crypto investigations to trace the funds.
A blockchain is a public record used to store cryptocurrency transactions. This way, everyone has access to what is happening on the blockchain and there is no way to falsify the information. However, cryptocurrency transactions are pseudonymous, and identifying the person or entity behind a wallet is not always easy.
This is why cryptocurrency investigations are important. A crypto investigation is a very broad term that gathers numerous different aspects. But basically, a crypto investigation aims to ultimately discover the identity of crypto wallet owners through crypto transaction analysis.
Today more and more entities such as law firms, accounting firms, crypto-related companies, etc, are conducting crypto investigations and forensics as more and more legal procedures are involving them. Such organizations must conduct investigations for their procedures.
