Brazil is taking active measures to ensure that crypto-related crimes in the nation are tackled with dedicated precision. The public prosecution office of Brazil’s central-western Federal District is behind the launch of this cryptocurrency investigation unit. The newly formed wing will also contribute in driving education and awareness around the crypto sector in the nation. The development comes at a time when the virtual digital assets (VDA) industry is undergoing expansion in the Latin American country.
The name of this new investigation unit is ‘Crypto’. The division will be roping in members of the public ministry, judiciary, and the police to impart education on digital assets.
