RUSI Cryptocurrency Risk, Recovery and Regulations Panel

Later today, our co-founder & CEO Aidan Larkin will be taking part in a panel discussion on Cryptocurrency Risk, Recovery and Regulations for the Centre of Financial Crime & Security Studies (CFCS) at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).

It's no secret that criminals often use cryptocurrency to launder their ill-gotten gains and fund criminal activities like drug trafficking, child exploitation or terrorism, but are policymakers doing enough to protect consumers from these bad actors?

In his first appearance for RUSI since being appointed as an associate fellow, Aidan will discuss his thoughts on the risks and rewards of regulating complex digital assets like cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). He’ll be joined by David Carlisle, the Vice President of Policy and Regulatory Affairs at Elliptic, a blockchain analytics company specialising in security, and Allison Owen, a Research Analyst from the CFCS at RUSI. The panel will be moderated by Scott Chipolina, a Digital Assets Correspondent from the Financial Times.

They’ll discuss how regulatory bodies, supervisors and law enforcement agencies could be doing more to protect consumers by addressing the links between the cryptocurrency ecosystem and the criminal underworld.

If you'd like to join us this afternoon (Oct 19th) at 4pm, you can register your attendance on the RUSI website.
