SlowMist Provides Blockchain Investigation Training for the Hong Kong Police Force’s Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB)

3 min readMar 18, 2024

Recently, SlowMist was invited to conduct a training session on tracking illicit cryptocurrency funds for the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB) of the Hong Kong Police Force. This initiative showcased the Hong Kong Police Force’s proactive stance towards embracing new technologies and their dedicated efforts to safeguard the lawful rights and interests of the public within the realm of virtual assets.

Given the challenges posed by “information silos,” the intricate movements of cryptocurrencies across on-chain and off-chain platforms, concealed transaction routes, and anonymous trading platforms, tracking blockchain-related criminal activities has grown significantly more complex. Recognizing these difficulties, SlowMist tailored its training for the Hong Kong Police Force to concentrate on tracing illicit cryptocurrency funds and addressing criminal behaviors.

Throughout the training, the Hong Kong Police Force was deeply engaged and responsive, clearly demonstrating their unwavering dedication to safeguarding the rights of users and their efforts to position Hong Kong as a leading global center for virtual assets. SlowMist holds a strong belief that as members of this ecosystem, it is everyone’s duty to contribute to its security improvement. This training aimed precisely to bolster the overall security of the ecosystem and ensure the safety of all participants by enhancing the collective efforts to secure the blockchain environment. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the Hong Kong Police Force for extending this opportunity.
