Around the world, interest in bitcoin and other cryptos continues to grow. To help with crypto education, Binance wants to launch a training program for government agencies.
Also, for several years, Binance has played an important role as a big brother to the crypto industry by helping recover funds from users who have been victims of theft, scams or hacks. But now they’re aiming higher with a cybercrime training program. That’s the reason for this brand new training program for government agencies.
Binance to work hand-in-hand with regulators around the world
Announced on September 27, this training program is for several countries around the world. The list includes France, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Sweden, South Korea and the United Kingdom. We note the absence of the United States in this list.
According to Tigran Gambaryan, director of Binance’s Intelligence and Investigations team, this program is the result of a strong demand from government agencies and legislators. Indeed, countries have a growing need to adapt to new technologies in order to combat crimes in the crypto world and more broadly on the internet.
“As more regulators, government law enforcement agencies, and private sector stakeholders take a keen interest in crypto, we are seeing an increase in demand for training to help educate and combat crypto-related crimes,” said Tigran Gambaryan, global head of intelligence and investigations at Binance. “To meet this demand, we have strengthened our team to conduct more training and work hand-in-hand with regulators around the world.”
Specifically, Binance will be offering one-day training programs that include intensive in-person workshops on blockchain, cryptos, legal issues and anti-money laundering policies.
According to Binance, the training program is led by a team of highly trained professionals. This includes former government agents and security experts on the team. Among them are law enforcement officials who helped shut down the illegal deep web platforms Hydra and Silkroad.
