About the conference

Hosted this year by Europol at its headquarters in The Hague, the annual conference gathers cryptocurrency experts, investigators and other law enforcement representatives from around the world.

The aim is to increase the capabilities of all relevant actors to successfully investigate and prosecute virtual assets-based money laundering and other crypto-enabled crimes, as well as manage related risks to citizens, companies and national/global financial systems.

The conferences help to create a network of practitioners and experts who can collectively establish best practices and provide assistance and recommendations in this fast-evolving field.
