Cryptocurrencies in their many forms, based on the blockchain concept, are here to stay and will increasingly pervade the way people trade and create contracts. This poses a significant challenge for investigators in many different fields, since they must face transactions that seem anonymous and untraceable.

Designed by widely renowned and respected investigator and researcher Nick Furneaux, this course makes investigators understand blockchain technologies and teaches them how to investigate transactions in a confident way, so that they are able to provide expert findings and robust evidence.
In a first step, we mine and then trade a simple cryptocurrency in the classroom (NickCoin!) to understand all the basic concepts underlying encryptions. We learn about the hashing algorithms used and what they can teach us about a transaction. Next, we set up wallets and trade on a primary blockchain.
In a second step, we learn how to find and extract addresses from paper wallets, computer disks/memory and the web. Then we look at how to extract raw data from all the primary blockchains using their APIs and discover numerous techniques to de-anonymize users within the blockchain and even how to extract attributable Bitcoin addresses from a wiretap or seized device. Now, we are finally able to fully understand how to seize and protect coins used in criminal activity.
We are not aware of any course available that digs this deep into the subject. Although we cover Bitcoin and Ethereum in specific, the skills taught enable investigators to examine any given cryptocurrency.
