About sixteen major cryptocurrency exchanges, payment processors and digital wallet providers have joined the EU’s law enforcement agency for an event about preventing money laundering. The three-day conference on digital currencies and cyber crime began on Tuesday in the Hague.
“Tracing and Attribution”
The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol), formerly known as the European Police Office and Drugs Unit, said that the event would primarily be about the “tracing and attribution” of cryptocurrencies. Attendees will also focus on methods to thwart services for hiding the source of funds, presumably such as coin mixers. Besides the representatives of the crypto companies and Europol, the event also includes people from the authorities of a number of European countries.
