Terrorists exploit crypto-currency: Dutton

November 7, 2019

Terrorists are exploiting crypto-currencies to fund their deadly missions, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has warned.

Mr Dutton says the anonymity of the online currencies allows extremists to escape scrutiny.

"The anonymity afforded by such technologies enables terrorist financiers to obfuscate their activities," he will tell a counter-terror conference in Melbourne on Thursday.

"The increasing use of digital and crypto-currencies, stored-value cards, online payment systems and crowd-funding platforms provide new channels through which terrorism may be financed."

He says countries need to stay ahead of modern financing measures, while also warning terrorists continue to use traditional methods, like ransom money and fraudulent charities.
