Expert Witness for Cryptocurrency: Testimony on Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum and other Digital Assets

If you are looking for an expert witness who can explain the facts about blockchain-based digital assets, renowned industry thought leader Richard Sanders is the man for you.

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.

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 prides himself on a very strong working relationship with the FBI and sees the opportunity to help law enforcement and the government with this new technology as a blessing.

Rich has consulted for numerous blockchain projects (Chromaway, Dusk) on optimizing their security posture, preventing the potential loss of millions of dollars worth of assets. He has also assisted in the development of procedures for major exchanges, including Binance, regarding asset theft and policies such as the GDPR.
