This content in EVOLVE is available to all users to ensure they have a base level understanding and consider the digital investigation and intelligence opportunities available from Cryptocurrencies.

A CRYPTOCURRENCY is a digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds independent of the need for a central bank.

The module uses Bitcoin, the most popular and high profile currency to educate the user about some standard cryptocurrency terminologies and technologies including Blockchain, addresses, wallets and the concept of mining.
