The Cyberchain Event 2021 which hosted experts in the Blockchain and Cybersecurity space, had our senior partner, Mr Adedeji Owonibi speak on the topic: “The Need for Forensics Experts in a Digital Economy”.

In his speech, he spoke about the different opportunities that the blockchain technology has to offer especially to youths which includes: coding, blockchain gaming, and becoming crypto forensics investigators . He mentioned that the space is still very new and everyone is still learning including the governments around the world and law enforcement agencies.

He reiterated on the fact that the criminal elements gave the popularity to Bitcoin, hence the need for the ecosystem to be regulated so as to prevent crypto currency related crimes. Going further, he mentioned that anyone could be a victim of these crimes as a result of becoming our own banks, and called on all crypto currency users to take responsibilities and ensure security of our assets.

Conversely, in becoming our own banks, there have been reported cases of cryptocurrency related crimes and the appalling situations victims experience simply because we neither know what to do nor where to report. In addition, the law enforcement agencies and various cooperate bodies involved in crime prevention are yet to understand the technology behind cryptocurrency which makes it pseudonymous, the blockchain technology.

As a result, there is a need for intensive education and trainings for individuals, cooperate bodies, government agencies and law enforcement agencies so as to enable us to be proactive. To make this education easier, A&D Forensics has partnered with Blockchain Intelligence Group (BIG) to bring this training home.

While concluding his speech, Mr Adedeji Owonibi expressed that the rate and amount of needed cryptocurrency investigations by law enforcement is becoming alarming, and called on to the bad actors who think that they could easily leverage on cryptocurrencies to note that the transparency in Blockchain will give them out swiftly, whether they use Dexes, swap NFTs or use unhosted wallets, because all are now visible with a click on Crypto Forensic Tools.

He further advised crypto traders to trade clean so that help can be rendered from the industry at needed times.
