US ANNOUNCES NATIONAL CRYPTOCURRENCY ENFORCEMENT TEAM

A news release from the US DoJ on 6 October advised that Deputy Attorney General Lisa O Monaco had announced the creation of a National Cryptocurrency Enforcement Team (NCET), to tackle complex investigations and prosecutions of criminal misuses of cryptocurrency, particularly crimes committed by virtual currency exchanges, mixing and tumbling services, and money laundering infrastructure actors. NCET will draw and build upon the established expertise across the DoJ Criminal Division to deter, disrupt, investigate, and prosecute criminal misuse of cryptocurrency, as well as to recover the illicit proceeds of those crimes whenever possible.
