The reliance and value of using data and tools to track and stop bad actors using cryptocurrency is quickly becoming one of the best ways for law enforcement, intelligence and other authorities to successfully protect citizens and businesses.

The huge increase in criminals moving money through cryptocurrency was one of the reasons why the Justice Department issued its first ever cryptocurrency enforcement framework in October 2020. One of the main takeaways is DoJ believes law enforcement professionals across agencies must continually develop and maintain the base of knowledge and skills necessary to identify threats involving cryptocurrency; conduct robust and efficient investigations of those threats; and employ the many appropriate legal tools available to bring individuals and entities that abuse cryptocurrency to justice.
