WazirX, India's largest crypto exchange, conducted a day-long training program for Bhopal Cyber Crime Cell officers.

The virtual asset industry is pegged at a trillion-dollar valuation and has witnessed INR 6 lakh crore trading volume in 2021. However, every emerging technology has its challenges and it is important to update the law enforcement agencies on methods to tackle these using innovative solutions
Committing to its vision to make crypto accessible to everyone in India, WazirX has devised a training module for the law enforcement community, pan-India. The training includes knowledge of basics of the blockchain, on-chain analysis to flag off suspicious trading activities as per regulatory frameworks, and education on using tools that can prevent such crimes and also identify fraudulent and fair transactions
Lauding the training module, Sachin Atulkar, Police Commissioner, Bhopal, said, “We appreciate the initiative of WazirX to impart commendable training sessions for our officers. The learning for this session will certainly help our able officials to unearth crypto scam-related cases efficiently. We would look forward to more of such sessions from the crypto experts, which will be a win-win for the public-private partnership in this segment.”
