New Study Shows Crypto Continues to be Used in Terrorism

A new study by Chainalysis says crypto terrorism funding is becoming more sophisticated and harder to track for authorities; terrorist groups are able to raise funds quicker than ever before and some have started top use videos to teach followers how to fund the group without detection; crypto exchanges are starting to follow this more closely and have started to work with groups like Chainalysis to root out the problem; “Once we identify these campaigns, our exchange customers are starting to block payments or filing suspicious activity reports based on information we are providing,” Jonathan Levin, co-founder of Chainalysis, said in a phone interview to American Banker. “I think there’s an increase in collaboration between the exchanges and the law enforcement community when it comes to this.” American Banker
