This training course will cover the fundamentals of cryptocurrency to include how to obtain it using cryptocurrency wallets, peer to peer networks, CoinJoin multi-party services, and various other methods. Anti-money laundering laws as it relates to cryptocurrency to include when “Know your Customer” laws are applicable will be discussed in detail.
