Crypto risk extends beyond the chain.
Your compliance data should too.

Case study: Cryptocurrency exposure

Case study: Cryptocurrency exposure

Illicit networks utilize cryptocurrencies as a means to raise and move funds. Governments, law enforcement, and regulatory regimes have been targeting these networks with new guidance for institutions operating within both cryptocurrency and traditional financial systems.

This case study highlights how Alexander Zhuchkovsky, sanctioned by the U.S. government as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist for his support of the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM), uses crypto services to store and transfer funds. Zuchkovsky runs and promotes the so-called Terricon Project to raise funds for Russian troops in Ukraine via crypto donations. Terricon Project’s website states that its use of cryptocurrency can help evade international sanctions. The Terricon Project has also utilized a New York-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) marketplace to host NFTs used for additional RIM fundraising.

Additionally, the Nordic Resistance Movement — an affiliate of RIM — also hosts a number of crypto wallets (Bitcoin, Etherum, LiteCoin, and more).
