The 2021 Crypto Crime Report


Everything you need to know about ransomware, money laundering, and more.

Cryptocurrency-based crime fell 54% in 2020, but ransomware attacks skyrocketed.

Ransomware payments more than quadrupled in 2020 to reach nearly $350 million worth of cryptocurrency – however, ransomware is just one piece of the puzzle.

Featuring in-depth case studies and original research, this report highlights the key trends in crypto crime including: 

  • How cybercriminals rely on a select group of cryptocurrency exchanges to launder illicit assets
  • The rise of DeFi platforms and their unique vulnerability to hacking
  • How COVID-19 has created emerging opportunities for bad actors to exploit
