Testimonial from a Detective who attended my in-person version of this course in Salt Lake City, UT:

"I attended Larry Nielsen’s FinTech Crypto Tracing course in March 2023. Since learning the basics of crypto tracing from his class, I have had much success tracing and seizing crypto funds.

In the past few months, I have seized about $50,000 USD in crypto from all over the world. I’ve also created crypto investigations policy and a government-controlled wallet account for our Department.

I highly recommend this course for any investigator looking to expand their financial cases into cryptocurrency."

Written by a law enforcement Detective Sergeant:

"I recently attended a block of Cryptocurrency Investigations training instructed by Larry.  I’ve sat through several presentations over the years on this topic and never left feeling any more knowledgeable about the subject.

The cryptocurrency world is replete with its own language, much of which is unique to the crypto industry.  Larry has a way of explaining the terms in an understandable way that is relatable to daily life.

His instruction was able to remove the veil of mystery and confusion surrounding cryptocurrency and the investigative process and left me and my team feeling more confident and capable of diving into these types of cases."
