Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The market for digital assets has exploded over the past few years. Digital assets consist mostly of speculative investments, such as cryptocurrencies, decentralised finance (DeFi), initial coin offerings (ICOs), and nonfungible tokens (NFTs). These assets are being embraced by governments, and both major financial and non-financial institutions. As a result of their great potential and the rising popularity of these technological systems, digital assets are vulnerable to anomalies and fraud that can have serious consequences for the integrity and security of these assets. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of papers from leading experts in the area of anomaly and fraud detection in digital assets. The topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Blockchain networks
  • Nonfungible Tokens
  • Web 3.0
  • Stablecoins
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Digital Banking
  • Criminology
  • Cybercrime
