Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology enable new ways to transfer value and are bringing about unique new business models to the world. But as with most technological innovation, these new tools also bring risks. This session will cover how criminals and other illicit actors are leveraging crypto/blockchain tools, how financial authorities around the world are working to investigate and counter such use, and the long term security implications of an emerging cryptocurrency ecosystem that operates outside the current financial system.

The Ichimoku Cloud is a technical indicator that is designed to help you spot market trends. There are five different elements that make up the Ichimoku Cloud. Though it looks like abstract art, the interpretation of this indicator is fairly easy. Each element represents a price that happened 26 days ago, and the first portion of the cloud is called the Kumo. To determine the trend of the market, you must divide the lagging span line by the highest high and lowest low of the previous 52 periods.

crypto option market making are derivatives that enable you to buy and sell a digital asset at a specific price on a specific date. The terms of the option contract are based on a number of factors, such as the amount of time you can expect to hold the digital asset before the contract expires, and the premium you will pay for the option.
