Binance Team Visits Nigeria, Assures of Commitment to Safety of Virtual Asset Ecosystem

Binance remains committed to upholding the safety of the global virtual asset ecosystem. Recently, in collaboration with Nigerian law enforcement, including the Nigeria Police Force and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Binance’s Compliance team collaborated with Nigerian agencies to orchestrate a thorough Seminar on Investigating Virtual Currency Crimes

Attended by over 35 law enforcement officers, the seminar focused on digital asset trends, investigative techniques, and strategies to prevent and combat crypto-related crimes.

Previously, a half-day online session was exclusively tailored for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Nigeria.

With the backing of Nigerian authorities, Binance aims to broaden its partnership with law enforcement agencies across the country. The company has provided comprehensive training courses to these agencies, equipping Nigerian officers with the latest knowledge to effectively combat virtual asset-related crimes.

Nils Andersen Röed, Head of Law Enforcement Training, noted: ‘For years, Binance has played a pivotal role in guiding the crypto industry, aiding in the recovery of funds for users who have fallen victim to theft, scams, or hacks. Now, with an e-crime training program, our ambitions are even higher.’

Binance’s Compliance team collaborated with Nigerian agencies to orchestrate a thorough Seminar on Investigating Virtual Currency Crimes in 2023. Attended by over 35 law enforcement officers, the seminar focused on digital asset trends, investigative techniques, and strategies to prevent and combat crypto-related crimes.

Jarek Jakubcek, Head of Law Enforcement Training at Binance, emphasized: ‘At Binance, we firmly believe that a close partnership between industry players and law enforcement agencies is essential in the fight against cybercrime, including the combatting of fraud. We are thrilled to engage with prosecutors from across Africa, supported by law enforcement agencies, in our joint mission to safeguard user assets. In addition to participating in public consultation, Binance’s dedication to protecting users significantly contributes to fostering a safer virtual asset ecosystem across Africa.’

In 2023, globally, the dedicated Law Enforcement Training Team, in collaboration with the Investigations Team, delivered 120 onsite and online training sessions and workshops, consistently earning high praise and positive feedback from the law enforcement community.

Simultaneously, Binance processed over 52,700 law enforcement requests from January 1 to November 13, 2023, serving 12,699 registered law enforcement officers worldwide through its Government Law Enforcement Request System. This exceeded the number of requests handled in 2022, which totalled over 50,000
