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?
