Event Info.

Disappearing crypto assets, inflated asset values (e.g. NFTs) and even manipulated smart contracts: it's just what you'd expect.

But the technology that facilitates these crimes, that helps to take steps to reduce their incidence and to take action for recovery of losses is far from what most of us have any exposure to.

And then there's the out and fraud, theft and embezzlement. How do they do that, you might ask.

Let's see, shall we?

Dealing with Crypto-Crime is to be standing in buzzword central and it's daunting.

But it need not be.

Today's Forum will address some of the apparent complexities, tell you which you need to understand and which you need to know about and deal with and can safely outsource.

Much of the complexity comes from governments which failed to properly understand the entire crypto industry and let it run rampant. So here's my truth: instead of creating a labyrinth of complex new regulations, simply redefine existing terms so that they are flexible, not rigid, and can be applied to new developments as they arise rather than try to retrofit a regulatory regime onto businesses that have flourished in the gaps between prescriptive laws and regulations.

There is a better way but it's a long term strategy and for now we are where we are and we must deal with what we have.
