In the second episode of our English series our guest on the podcast is Marlon Pinto. Mr Pinto leads the investigations team at Another Day, a global intelligence, security and investigations advisory based in London. He and Dr Rosinus talk about the work of Mr Pinto’s team around crypto currency issues.
Mr Pinto explains that he has a great deal of expertise in the field of cryptocurrency investigations due to his previous experience in law enforcement. In doing so, he talks about how the work differs from the private sector.
Mr Pinto explains that he and his team work together closely with litigators who are approached by victims of potential cryptocurrency crimes and how they try to recover funds and find evidence. He describes that their main job is to gather and curate evidence which may be used in court. In order to do so they analyse blockchains, trace cryptocurrency transactions and visualise the transaction chains for the judges.
Mr Pinto also explains how it is possible to identify the person behind a cryptocurrency crime and in which jurisdictions investigations tend to be more difficult.
Furthermore, Dr Rosinus und Mr Pinto talk about trends in cryptocurrency crimes. Mr Pinto gives an overview of crypto-fraud schemes and states that in the near past there was an influx of wire fraud. Finally, Mr Pinto and Dr Rosinus give advice about the course of action when a person becomes a victim of a cryptocurrency crime.
