4th Global Conference on Criminal Finances and Cryptocurrencies - Interpol

4th Global Conference on Criminal Finances and Cryptocurrencies 2020

The 4th Global Conference on Criminal Finances and Cryptocurrencies, hosted by Interpol, will take place virtually this year on 18-19 November 2020. 

Co-organised by the Basel Institute on Governance, Interpol and Europol, the conference gathers cryptocurrency experts, money laundering investigators and other law enforcement representatives from around the world. 

The aim of the annual conference and partnership is to increase the understanding, knowledge and capacity of relevant actors to successfully investigate crimes in which virtual assets are involved. The partnership also aims to create a network of practitioners and experts who can collectively establish best practices and provide assistance and recommendations.

Since its first edition in 2014, attendance at the conference has grown by nearly 900% – an indication of how quickly cryptocurrencies are changing the AML/CFT sphere.
