1 min read

The U.S. Secret Service has established new web page dedicated to sharing information on cryptocurrencies and raising the public’s awareness on the technology’s illicit uses.

The new cryptocurrency public awareness hub will feature the Secret Service’s latest response work against the illicit use of digital assets, as well as information on securing them from threats.

“Our obligation to enforce crimes against the nation’s financial systems includes both informing the public on how digital assets work and partnering with them to identify, arrest and prosecute those engaging in crimes involving digital assets,” said Jeremy Sheridan, assistant director of the U.S. Secret Service’s Office of Investigations.

Sheridan added the agency will continue to grow its collaborative efforts and capabilities that address financial crimes.
