"Threats and Risks in Cryptocurrencies"


Cryptocurrencies have exploded in popularity in the last few years. These cryptographic systems aim to provide freedom from government-backed fiat currencies. This presentation examines the traditional and novel risks to cryptocurrency systems. Special attention is paid to documented attacks on cryptocurrency infrastructure, criminal use of cryptocurrencies, and the policies affecting cryptocurrency systems.
