Cybercrime is one of the biggest law enforcement challenges today. Personnel must be constantly increased and trained to keep up with new technologies. Investigators are now relying on blockchain technology.

Austrian Albert Sperl is an expert in cybercrime. In 2014, he specialized in blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies. He founded a company that aims to support public authorities and private individuals in the fight against cybercrime. His associates previously worked in the military or the police.

Just as with the original law enforcement, the team builds trust in the perpetrators in order to bring them to justice. The DLT is a great help for Sperl. There he monitors transactions and can extract the perpetrator’s wallet.
