Sharon Cohen Levin, Tony Lewis, Kamil Shields and Tracy Nelson Wirth co-authored the chapter “Money Laundering through Digital Assets” in Global Investigation Review’s The Guide to Anti-Money Laundering. The authors note that “[t]he very attributes that make digital assets unique … make them particularly vulnerable to use as a money laundering tool,” and discuss how regulatory agencies and law enforcement are addressing these challenges.
Sharon also served as editor of the guide. “Money laundering has become an international concern,” she writes in the introduction. “It facilitates and conceals crime, enabling criminals to disguise the proceeds of their illicit activity and allowing them to move these illegitimate funds through the global financial system without detection.”
