The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation, better known under the name Europol, has announced it's developing in close cooperation with CENTRIC (Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research) a serious cryptocurrency-tracking game.
According to the official statement, the game, which is planned to be launched in October at the seventh Europol-INTERPOL Cybercrime Conference, will be the first law enforcement training opportunity on cryptocurrency and investigation using gamification.
"It will allow law enforcement officers to get hands-on training and advice on tracing cryptocurrencies in criminal investigations," states the announcement.
Last year, the United States and Canada faced with a group of anonymous bomb threats from bitcoin scammers. Police stations in New York and Oklahoma reported on their tweets that several businessmen received emails with threats of a bomb explosion and demands to pay with bitcoin.
