How can the difference in outcomes be so vast? Assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum and cryptocurrency in general, before treated as ‘anonymous’ and ‘high risk’, are now at the front line of advancement in anti-money laundering technology – usurping traditional finance at a fraction of the cost. And some have woken up.

Adrian Gonzalez the leader in crypto assets litigation and recovery in the US and a member of its Board CFE in the United States to further aid defrauded investors in recovering their wrongfully-taken cryptocurrency.

Misappropriated cryptocurrency funds related to hacks, scams, ransoms, drug and human trafficking and all other types of illicit and criminal activities tend to be passed through complex layering/mixing schemes aimed to conceal the trail of funds.


Afterwards, large and sophisticated hacking and scam operations typically pass funds through a deliberately designed chain of hundreds or thousands of ‘layering’ transactions – similar to traditional finance money laundering methods. But despite the sophistication of the schemes’ route, the blockchain ledger can be tracked and recover cryptocurrency.


The Blockchain System Counters

Crypto fraudsters and those in blockchain-driven compliance are forever in a technological arms race, but SecuredIntel1 is always a step ahead of the nefarious actors.


Fraud investigation engines often encompass several automatic analytical techniques allowing investigators to overcome even very complex layering schemes. The basic typology distinguishes three types of examinations – the destination of funds, source of funds and fingerprints of activity.


Destination of funds is aimed to identify blockchain addresses that hold or received funds originating from misappropriated wallets, as well as evidencing transaction paths (chains of consecutive transactions) between them.


Contrarily, the source of funds is designed to identify addresses that send funds to blockchain addresses related to criminal activity. The purpose of fingerprints of activity is to identify accounts of known blockchain services and methods used by the perpetrators. The aforementioned examinations are supported with numerous engine data mining techniques such as ownership analysis, clustering and e-discovery.


A Holistic Approach to Tracing Stolen Funds

SecuredIntel1 unique fraud investigation methodology uses multiple different tracing methods for the same investigation. This includes those widely adopted in bankruptcy law, such as first-in, first-out (FIFO), last-in, first-out (LIFO), pro-rata distribution (Proportional Distribution), lower intermediate balance rule (LIBR), with an additional comprehensive set of proprietary methods enhanced for the specifics of blockchain.


We take this holistic approach because courts tend to have different preferences when it comes to tracing methodologies. For example, pro-rata distribution may be preferred in cases of Ponzi schemes where multiple, similarly situated victims are being paid with other victims’ deposits.


Well prepared, verifiable evidence of tracing analysis and impartial interpretation, such as multiple methods presenting similar findings, makes it far easier (and less costly) when it comes to decisions.
