Europol and Interpol Partner to Fight Digital Currency ‘Abuse’
Europol and Interpol have agreed to work together on issues related to the criminal use of digital currencies.
A group of international law enforcement groups and government bodies are hosting a conference on money laundering and digital currencies this week.
Europol, the European Union’s top law enforcement agency has co-founded a new working group dedicated to digital currencies.
The international crime fighting agency led an operation to stem a plague of cryptocurrency mining malware afflicting computer routers across Asia.
Interpol conducted a war game scenario last week that centered on discovering the identity of a blackmailer demanding a bitcoin ransom.
Bitcoin and digital currencies are said to be an area of focus during an upcoming conference organized by Interpol.
