VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIGG Digital Assets Inc. ("BIGG" or the "Company") (CSE: BIGG; OTCQX: BBKCF; WKN: A2PS9W), owner of Blockchain Intelligence Group
(www.blockchaingroup.io) ("BIG"), a global blockchain investigative, visualization and risk mitigation software company is pleased to announce an agreement with Professional
Risk Management, Inc. (PRM), based in Leesburg, Virginia, to provide BIG Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator (CCI) training to 70 PRM financial investigators supporting U.S. law enforcement
efforts to stop the illicit flow of illegal proceeds back to transnational criminal organizations.
BIG’s Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator (CCI) on-demand training includes the history and inner workings of criminal uses of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. The CCI training provides a deep dive on the dark web from a law enforcement investigator's perspective, with a case study about the Silk Road, the largest online illegal drug distribution network, busted by law enforcement in 2013, which utilized Bitcoin as a method of payment. Anti-money laundering, cryptocurrency analysis and blockchain forensics are among the topics covered.
The training provided by BIG will include the 8-hour, online CCI course, live training webinars and access to BIG’s QLUE (Qualitative Law Enforcement Unified Edge) which is currently used by Law Enforcement, Banks, Exchanges, and ATM Operators on five continents to perform due diligence and forensic investigations exploring crypto transactions. BIG’s proprietary analytical tool QLUE, specifically developed with the law enforcement investigator and intelligence analyst in mind, allows for the exportation of public blockchain ledger raw data, and converts it into easy to follow graphs and charts, which can be used as evidence in court.
Lance Morginn, President, BIG, commented, “This training sets a foundation for investigators to confront criminals who utilize cryptocurrency to further their illegal acts. Together with QLUE, financial investigators have a powerful tool to identify bad actors and take the profit out of crime.”

For over 20 years, PRM financial investigators have been at the forefront of contract financial services that support agency mission objectives.
