Distributed ledgers give us unprecedented insight into illicit economies...

This podcast was made possible thanks to the support of the Hewlett Foundation’s Cyber Initiative. They’ve provided us with grant funding so we can do feature podcasts that will be of interest to people working in policy roles. The idea is educate people working in policy about issues that they’re in a position to do something about.

In this interview we spoke with Kim Grauer, the head of research at Chainalysis.

Chainalysis makes software that cryptocurrency exchanges, regulators, law enforcement and intelligence services use to get insight into what’s happening in terms of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies moving around. You would have heard us talk about their reports in the news segment of Risky Biz a few times because they have a habit of publishing really interesting insights into things like the ransomware economy.
