Virtual Currency Alerts

Three children lying in the grass - caption: All children deserve to be protected from sexual exploitation

Improve your cryptocurrency analysis and services by getting real-time alerts when a virtual currency wallet is associated with online child sexual abuse material

You’ll be able to identify a whole payment network associated with the virtual currency wallet being used to sell and buy online child sexual abuse images and videos by signing up to our real-time Virtual Currency Alerts.

Our expert analysts assess more than 1,000 webpages every week. At the same time, they also look for any information relating to virtual currencies like Bitcoin. We’ve seen an increase in the amount of virtual currency wallets (including Bitcoin) being used for buying and selling child sexual abuse content in the past year.

Get Virtual Currency Alerts in place before the problem becomes too big to manage – email members@iwf.org.uk today.

How our Virtual Currency Alerts can help you:

  • You get immediate notification when we see virtual currency wallets associated with online child sexual abuse images and videos, anywhere in the world.
  • You can send us suspicious webpages you’re concerned about and our specialist analysts will assess them.
  • We can give you personalised information for your business, including transaction amounts, to help you with payment tracking and cryptic keyword terms associated with paedophilic content.
  • By becoming an IWF Member you’ll get all our relevant technical services at no extra cost.
