Europol hosts its 6th annual cryptocurrency conference, major names attend

It has been revealed in a press release that Europol recently held their sixth annual cryptocurrency conference, dedicated to spreading awareness and cooperation between law enforcement and the crypto industry. It seems some major names have attended, to highlight their commitment to lawfully operating in the crypto space.

The conference has been held from the 12th to the 14th of June, at the Europol headquarters. The event was organised by Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and focused on "opportunities for closer cooperation and new partnerships to prevent and detect cryptocurrency-facilitated crime and to assist asset recovery."

All speakers were issued traceable certificates stored on the Bitcoin blockchain, for "practically demonstrating the benefits of the tamper-proof, decentralised ledger technology."

Quite a few big names were in attendance, to showcase their efforts to working with the law to bring decentralized tech to the world. The press release lists the following companies were present at the conference:

Binance, BitBay, Bitcoin.de, Bitfinex, BitFlyer Europe, Bitnovo, Bitonic, Bitpanda, BitPay, Bitstamp, CEX, Coinbase, Coinfloor, Coinhouse, Coinpayments, CoinsPaid, Ledger, Litebit, LocalBitcoins, OKCoin, Shapeshift, SpectroCoin, Tether and Xapo.

At the conference, it was announced that the law enforcement agency is developing a " cryptocurrency-tracing serious game," to train agents on aspects of cryptocurrency investigation.

It sounds like much of the industry is committed to acting within the law. Will this bring more acceptance of crypto to a wider audience? Stick with Chepicap for all updates!
