Cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies are changing the way that value and data is transferred and stored. Bitcoin was the genesis that turned the wheel to the development of blockchain and is subsequently extensively written about. In this talk Simon explores the difficulties that investigators face with the new wave of privacy currencies, decentralised exchanges and smart contracts. As non-permissioned blockchains develop the new web technologies that can host persistent secure decentralised websites or content a new paradigm is born. Storage solutions, messaging applications and decentralised social media are all deployed or in development. Incident response is explored using examples of when blockchain goes bad. The talk gives a unique take by looking through the lens of those who are required to adapt to new technology and to serve the public.
