There has been an increase in demand of various medical equipment due to the ongoing coronavirus. While some were caught profiteering from this, companies like Binance and Huobi both stepped in and each offered 10M CNY ($1.5 Million USD) to help citizens who were affected by the virus outbreak. The sum will be used to purchase protective equipment for Wuhan medical staff working at the front line.

According to “The 2020 State of Crypto Crime” report published by Chainanalysis, in 2019, scams crimes were the highest by transaction volume out of all crypto-related crimes. Despite this, illicit crypto transactions only occupies 1.1% of all crypto activities. Chainanalysis foresees more sophisticated crypto crime evolution in terms of scope and technology, and proposed crypto businesses, law enforcement, and regulators to collaborate and prevent new emerging forms of crypto crimes.
