Crypto Crime Hits Record $20 Billion In 2022 Says Chainalysis Report, Cricketers Shivam Dube, Ravi Bishnoi Enter NFT World
Illegal cryptocurrency use reached a record $20.1 billion last year, as transactions involving organisations subject to US sanctions increased sharply, according to data from Blockchain analytics company Chainalysis, which was revealed on January 12, 2023.
In 2022, the cryptocurrency market struggled, as risk-taking decreased, and several crypto businesses went under. Regulators increased requests for more consumer protection as a result of the significant losses suffered by investors.
Despite a decline in overall crypto transaction volumes, Chainalysis reported that the value of crypto transactions involving illegal activities increased for the second year in a row.
