Title: La utilización de la Blockchain en la ciberdelincuencia. Análisis de la ocultación de la actividad delictiva en internet
Author: Antelo Castelo, Ana
Tutor: Gretenkort, Tobias  
Abstract: Blockchain technology has garnered significant attention in recent times due to its criminogenic potential and its association with criminal concealment in cyberspace. This study investigates its use by cybercriminals and the link to criminal concealment through real cases in legal literature. When researching their characteristics and functionality, numerous difficulties arise in finding detailed information on their operation, with money laundering being the most associated crime with blockchain and cryptocurrencies in the literature. As a result, the analysis reveals a connection to criminal concealment due to the technology's pseudoanonymity and low traceability. However, it concludes with a much higher presence as a facilitation tool in the actual commission of crimes, and therefore, as a new complement to the perpetration of traditional criminal activities in cyberspace.
