Aidan Larkin, Asset Reality

The session will look at the enforcement perspective:

• What are virtual currencies and why does it matter to me?
• What are the challenges for Asset Recovery practitioners (legal and practical)
• How is it investigated and seized/recovered?
• What are the options for Management & Realisation of seized crypto?
• How have other countries/entities faced this challenge?

Aidan Larkin is CEO of Asset Reality, the world’s first dedicated Asset Manager for seized crypto assets. As the multi-trillion dollar crypto industry continues to grow, law enforcement, regulators and the wider industry have no way to deal with seized or illicit crypto assets. Asset Reality’s team of experienced crypto asset recovery practitioners has launched the world’s first end to end solution for investigating, recovering, managing and selling seized crypto assets. In partnership with the world’s leading blockchain analysis companies and digital custodians, they manage a diverse portfolio of crypto and other complex assets on behalf of law enforcement agencies and asset recovery practitioners around the world.

Prior to founding Asset Reality, Aidan was the Asset Recovery Director for the Wilsons Auctions Group. His role involved managing a diverse portfolio of law enforcement & government asset realisation contracts, including insolvency appointments. This included advising, managing and realising assets worldwide, including crypto assets. During his time there he presided over the worlds first seized bitcoin auction.
