The Royal United Services Institute and the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (RUSI-ACAMS) is collaborating with YouGov, conducted a survey on authorities’ perception of the crypto industry.

The survey says:

“The RUSI-ACAMS Cryptocurrency Risk & Compliance Survey provides unprecedented insight into how governments, the cryptocurrency industry, traditional financial institutions, and others view the use of cryptocurrency, including its inherent risks and the robustness of compliance controls within the cryptocurrency sector.”

It has been reported that the endeavor questioned authorities worldwide, ultimately receiving 566 different insights, as the survey reveals a number of results, including disagreement on the safety of crypto-asset use.

Mainstream entities polled see the asset class as risky. Crypto industry participants polled also see the asset class as risky but felt that they possessed the knowledge, skills, and tools to bring possible threats down to a benign level, based on their responses to the survey. This includes industry participants who are savvy around Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism procedures.

The survey mentions unease from both camps on the topic of nefarious crypto use, anticipating further future guidance and regulation.

The survey says:

“While cryptocurrency use by criminals only accounts for around 1% of all transactions, it remains an attractive venue for those avoiding the traditional financial system.”

The findings also report:

“Respondents also indicate that despite current skepticism over the role of cryptocurrency in promoting financial inclusion, there might be more space for it in the future. Respondents predict both an increased role for cryptocurrency in day-to-day payments in the future as well as a decrease in cryptocurrency use for illicit activities, especially as compared to how it is viewed now.” 

Thus, given the bevy of hacks and mishaps over the last few years, participants in the crypto industry should strive to be aware of the involved risks, making prevention measures a key component of the space.
