95% of Cryptocurrency Crimes Linked to Bitcoin: Analyst




NEW YORK CITY – Jonathan Levin, the co-founder, and COO of Chainalysis, on one of the episodes of Fortune’s “Balancing the Ledger” said that Bitcoin is the favorite cryptocurrency crime of criminals to carry out illicit activities. The analyst said that despite the availability of 2000 different cryptocurrencies and many privacy coins, about 95% of cryptocurrency crimes are linked to Bitcoin. It is so because Bitcoin is the top digital coin in the market and enjoys the highest value among all cryptocurrencies. Also, the transaction volume of Bitcoin is the highest in trading and spending, among all the other cryptocurrencies.

The firm, Chainalysis has been responsible for developing software to help cryptocurrency firms and law enforcements in tracing the public ledger of transactions on 10 different blockchains. Also, many dollar-backed stablecoins have been added under this. Levin said that most of the illegal activities in the US have been conducted to buy opioid drugs such as fentanyl and other drugs from pharmacies in China by paying in bitcoin cryptocurrency. Homeland Security and the DEA have managed to seize people involved in illegal activities related to cryptocurrencies.

Out of all latest blockchain & cryptocurrency news, this bitcoin mystery gained the attention of a huge number of people all across the world. Chainalysis, in its earlier attempt, could not manage to crack the mystery behind the lost access to 190$ million of customer funds through the Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, QuadrigaCX post the death of its CEO. However, in the end, it was explained by Levin that Quadriga never had those customer funds and where that money went is an intriguing subject to ponder.

From television to the internet platform, Jonathan switched his journey in digital media with Bigtime Daily. He served as a journalist for popular news channels and currently contributes his experience for Bigtime Daily by writing about the tech domain.
