Credits Awarded: 1 CAMS, 1.25 CRCM
Since we last held a presentation of cryptocurrencies, new entrants such as Monero have joined the fray, making tracking of virtual monetary transactions challenging. The blockchain with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are relatively new concepts in the banking world. These unconventional payment technologies can pose threats to anti-money laundering efforts, yet we can expect the industry’s year-over-year usage continue to grow in 2017.
This session will cover how cryptocurrencies are used and steps that financial institutions can take to enhance their due diligence on cryptocurrency transactions.
