Stamp of Privacy on Monero –
In a recent turn of events, Europol, The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement, has encountered a cybercrime involving Monero. Europol officials have attended a Blockchain Alliance Webinar on Privacy Coins. Jerek Jakubcek, an E3C Europol officer explained his view on Monero with an example.
The cybercriminals have used a combination of Tor and Monero to hide the money. Europol explained that they could easily trace back any Bitcoin crime on the blockchain. However, their efforts have come to a dead-end with Monero blockchain.
“Once funds are moved to Monero – regardless of by which means this happens, criminal investigations tend to hit a wall. “
