Investigating cybercrime in general, particularly ransomware, relies more on blockchain analytics tools. This is because many attacks often use digital currencies to demand ransom. For example, the CryptoLocker campaign is under investigation using blockchain data. Researchers have been able to identify embedded digital footprints that can reveal relevant information about the identity behind them.
Cryptocurrencies rely on encryption protection and decentralized peer-to-peer system. Ownership of funds is aliased by default while the stream is public and visible. Blockchain analysis provides information on the movement of cryptocurrencies. And many investigators have access to crypto movements and transactions with the help of blockchain analytics tools.
Blockchain analytics aims at identifying, clustering, and representing data stored on blockchains.
More and more companies operating with cryptocurrencies are using Blockchain analytics tools to analyze transactions and assess the level of risks to meet regulatory requirements worldwide.
