Europol, the law enforcement agency of the European Union, has just concluded its sixth cryptocurrency conference, a June 14 press release notes.

The event, which was hosted by the European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) of Europol from June 12 to 14, invited members of both the public and private sectors to discuss cybercrime and cryptocurrencies.

“Experts shared best practices and law enforcement techniques using examples such as investigations into phishing, thefts of funds and DDoS extortion. The conference also included lessons learned from some recent investigations like the takedown of Wall Street Market and Bestmixer,” the release reads.

In the spirit of conference, Europol issued speakers with publicly available digital certificates stored on the Bitcoin blockchain.

It also announced it is developing a “serious” game to help training law enforcement officials trace cryptocurrencies used in cybercrimes. The game, which is being co-developed with CENTRIC (Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research), is slated to be released in time for the seventh Europol-INTERPOL Cybercrime Conference in October this year.
