Bitcoin and Crypto 201 - Beyond the basics (but not too far beyond)
So, you've heard the "bitcoin talk" and a maybe even an explanation of bitcoin, which was no doubt full of tech talk and beyond the scope of a financial crimes investigator. But, do you understand how the world of crypto intersects with traditional financial services?
This webinar will explore use cases for cryptocurrency beyond retail ATM and exchange transactions, both good and bad, as well as seek to expand your crypto vocabulary with practical terminology and applications for your compliance shop.
Bitcoin and crypto FIs and exchanges have introduced new and innovative products to market, including lending, peer-to-peer insurance, trading platforms, and payment solutions for the legalized cannabis industry. Join us for a discussion of bitcoin and crypto beyond the basics. (We promise not to go too far beyond.)
Attendee learning goals:
- How to gauge strong, and weak, compliance programs for virtual exchanges.
- What are the compliance risks and red flags when the financial worlds of crypto, lending, peer-to-peer payments and trading converge.
- What key terms in the crypto space represent and related risk strata
- Key tactics for compliance officers, investigators and others for assessing when crypto firms are illicit, including with ties to the dark web.
