The webcast is timely, as Digital Frauds involving cryptocurrencies is trending up dramatically. The amount stolen from digital currency exchanges in the first half of 2018 was nearly three times more than in all of last year according to a new report by CipherTrace, a blockchain security firm. Sophisticated criminals in the United States and around the world are increasingly using cryptocurrencies in fraud and money laundering operations. Money laundering involving cryptocurrencies – a medium of exchange circulated over a computer network and generally not backed by a government – is a new twist on an old crime. This particular type of crime has broad implications for businesses, financial institutions and the accounting profession.
