Expert Witness for Cryptocurrency: Testimony on Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum and other Digital Assets
Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrency
CipherBlade is a team of credentialed experts for matters involving cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. We’re available to offer expert witness testimony in cases pertaining to blockchain technology including cybercrime, cryptocurrency wallet & exchange hacks, SIM-Swapping, fraudulent ICOs, investment fraud, romance scams, cryptocurrency compliance and AML policies and procedures, hidden or non-disclosed cryptocurrency assets, as well as other cases involving civil litigation.
The technical aspects of cryptocurrency ownership and blockchain forensics often need to be explained to judges and other legal professionals in an easy-to-understand way. This is because they often have little to no knowledge of blockchain technology, how cryptocurrency can be tracked, or how ownership of a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be attributed to an individual even though it’s strictly digital in nature.
CipherBlade is an elite team of analysts and experts that is geographically distributed around the world. We have been called upon as experts in many different jurisdictions around the world, including most notably the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and other countries around the world.
We are well-known cybercrime investigators with a focus on cryptocurrency and have an extensive network of law enforcement, legal and exchange contacts, and most importantly, deep experience with hundreds of cases. Multiple CipherBlade personnel are Chainalysis Reactor Certified (CRC), among other certifications, and we utilize tools we’ve developed in-house as well. Furthermore, we’re members of the Crypto Defenders Alliance.
If you are looking for an expert witness who can explain the facts about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, renowned industry expert Richard Sanders can help.
Rich has extensive experience “writing the book” on mapping blockchain transactions and explaining the movement of assets to laymen with little or no blockchain experience in a way that simply makes sense, with meticulously constructed graphics to illustrate typically hard-to-understand flows in an easily interpreted way.
Having offered testimony on matters pertaining to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency numerous times, as well having authored a considerable number of expert reports and declarations, in addition to having led a lengthy list of investigative cases, Rich is widely considered to be one of the only “seasoned” experts that is qualified to opine on cryptocurrency-related cybercrime.
Rich is seen as a subject-matter expert by the FBI and at the “top of the Rolodex” for Special Agents who have questions concerning blockchain-related cybercrime. Rich maintains very strong working relationships with various law enforcement and regulatory agencies both in the US and around the world and helps advise them on best practices, and events that are unfolding in the industry.
Paul Sibenik is a leading expert in the domain of blockchain forensics. As the Lead Case Manager at CipherBlade, he has led investigations into a considerable number of cybercrime cases, including those involving investment frauds, hacks, and thefts, as well as a range of civil cases. He’s also led cases involving security audits of blockchain businesses to help them become more secure and far less susceptible to a breach.
He has produced expert reports for courts on a number of cases that involve cryptocurrency where there are often allegations of money laundering and has a considerable amount of experience working with legal professionals who often have minimal knowledge of cryptocurrency.
Paul, who is based in Canada but works on cases internationally, initially started working on investigative cases involving cryptocurrency in the divorce sector, investigating cases and providing advisory to attorneys who previously had little success with forensic accountants. But his work has since gone far beyond that, with a considerable amount of experience in almost all investigative niches pertaining to cryptocurrency.
While CipherBlade is often engaged with the hope that our work will uncover perpetrators of various types of frauds, CipherBlade has also been engaged on cases where our work has led to the exoneration of multiple people falsely accused.
