Design/methodology/approach: Focusing on service-percentages and reputation-mechanisms in underground bitcoin laundering services, this paper presents the results of a cash-out experiment in which five mixing and five exchange services are included.
Findings: Some of the examined services provide an excellent, professional and well-reviewed service at competitive cost. Whereas others turned out to be scams, accepting bitcoin but returning nothing in return.
Practical implications: The authors discuss what these findings mean to law enforcement, and how bitcoin laundering chains could be disrupted.
Originality/value: These cash-out strategies are increasingly facilitated by cryptocurrencies, mainly bitcoin. Bitcoins are already relatively anonymous, but with the rise of specialised bitcoin money laundering services on the Dark Web, laundering money in the form of bitcoins becomes available to a wider audience.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Bitcoin money laundering: mixed results? An explorative study on money laundering of cybercrime proceeds using bitcoin'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
