8th Cryptocurrency Conference banner

Registration is now open for the 8th Global Conference on Criminal Finances and Cryptocurrencies (#8CrC). This year's conference is co-organised by Europol and the Basel Institute on Governance and will be hosted by UNODC at its headquarters in Vienna, Austria.

You can register here.

The hybrid conference explores trends, strategies and tactics in tackling crimes involving virtual assets. A joint initiative of the Basel Institute on Governance and Europol, the annual event now draws hundreds of experts and interested parties from around the world.

Multi-stakeholder discussions

Through short presentations, panel discussions and case studies, the conference participants seek to illuminate how criminals can abuse the virtual asset ecosystem and develop recommendations on what law enforcement, regulators and the private sector can do about it.

Confirmed speakers on day 1 span the private sector (including major virtual asset service providers and blockchain analytics firms), law enforcement and relevant regulatory or supervisory authorities.

Day 2 features international cryptocurrency investigators sharing case studies and typologies. Attendance on day 2 is strictly limited to law enforcement agencies and related public authorities such as financial intelligence units and supervisory authorities.

Hybrid conference

The conference will be held in a hybrid format, with 200 spaces available for in-person attendance on each day. Attendance is free but pre-registration is required. 

Update 21 July: In-person registration is now closed as we are at full capacity; you may register virtually and/or request to be placed on the waiting list.

Important: Attendance is subject to confirmation by the organising committee. Do not make travel arrangements before receiving written confirmation.
