We hired Karim for a commercial dispute, with a UK based entity that breached our P.O. terms. The difficulty with the case was that we have paid a down payment without much leverage to recover it.

Cryptocurrency Lawyers FAQs

Cryptocurrency is a revolutionary digital form of currency that operates independently of traditional banking systems. It is based on blockchain technology, a decentralised and secure ledger that ensures transparency and immutability of transactions.

Unlike traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies do not have a physical form; they exist purely in digital format on the blockchain.

At its core, cryptocurrency is designed to enable secure, peer-to-peer transactions, allowing individuals to exchange value directly without intermediaries. Bitcoin, the pioneering cryptocurrency, was introduced in 2009, and since then, numerous other cryptocurrencies, often referred to as “altcoins,” have emerged.

Cryptocurrencies offer unique advantages such as enhanced privacy, lower transaction fees, and the potential for borderless transactions. They have also gained traction as an investment vehicle due to their potential for high returns. However, their digital nature and complex technology have also led to legal complexities and disputes.

As the landscape of cryptocurrencies continues to evolve, legal considerations become paramount. Our cryptocurrency lawyers specialise in navigating the intricate legal challenges associated with cryptocurrencies, ensuring that your digital assets are safeguarded and your interests protected. Whether you are a trader, investor, or part of a cryptocurrency project, we are here to provide you with strategic guidance and effective solutions.

Blockchain technology is the foundation that underpins cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and has far-reaching implications beyond digital currencies.

At its essence, blockchain is a decentralised and distributed digital ledger that records transactions across multiple computers securely and transparently.

In a traditional centralised system, transactions are controlled by a single entity like a bank or a government. However, blockchain shifts this paradigm by enabling peer-to-peer transactions without the need for intermediaries. Each transaction is grouped into a “block,” and these blocks are linked together in a chronological chain, forming the “blockchain.”

One of the most compelling features of blockchain is its immutability. Once a transaction is recorded on the blockchain, it cannot be altered or deleted. This inherent transparency and security make blockchain an ideal solution for various industries beyond finance, including supply chain management, healthcare, real estate, and more.

Blockchain’s potential to improve industries such as supply chain management and voting systems, However, as this technology evolves, legal challenges arise particularly with cryptocurrency fraud.

Our expert cryptocurrency lawyers provide strategic counsel and expert representation to navigate the intricate landscape of blockchain technology, ensuring that your interests are protected in this transformative digital era.

If you have any questions how blockchain technology may be used to help with your business, please call us for a Free Consultation today on 0207 459 4037.

A smart contract is a revolutionary aspect of blockchain technology, redefining how agreements are executed and enforced in the digital age.

It is essentially a self-executing contract with the terms of the agreement directly written into lines of code. Once the predefined conditions are met, the contract automatically enforces the agreed-upon actions, without the need for human intermediaries.

For example, a traditional contract for buying a house: typically involves property agents, lawyers, banks, and a lengthy process. Now, imagine a smart contract streamlining this entire process. When the buyer transfers the agreed-upon amount in cryptocurrency to the smart contract, ownership of the property is automatically transferred to the buyer, and funds are released to the seller—all within seconds and without human intervention.

Smart contracts have extensive use cases beyond real estate, extending to supply chain management, insurance, intellectual property rights, and more. Their efficiency, transparency, and security make them an attractive proposition for future innovation. However, like any technology, they come with legal implications that require expert guidance.

Our cryptocurrency lawyers in London are experts in cryptocurrency regulation, disputes and fraud recovery. Whether you are dealing with a dispute involving a smart contract, would like to create a smart contract or seeking to ensure your rights are protected when using this innovative technology, we are here to provide comprehensive advice and representation.

Cryptocurrencies are not currently regulated in the UK. Customers of regulated firms benefit from Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) protection for their real or fiat currency where they could be entitled to up to £85k in compensation if things go wrong. However, there is no protection available from the regulator or the government if you are scammed or lose your cryptocurrency because of fraud.

Notwithstanding the above, there has been a push within the industry for regulation to protect retail and non-sophisticated customers. On 8 January 2024, the UK government launched the Digital Securities Sandbox which aims to provide a clear framework for businesses to navigate the complexities of digital securities and test out new technologies with real customers.

In the rapidly evolving world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, distinguishing legitimate projects from potential scams is of paramount importance to us and our clients. With the rise of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), where new cryptocurrencies are launched every day, it is crucial to exercise due diligence to protect your investments and interests.

Our cryptocurrency fraud lawyers provide some tips below to help you verify the legitimacy of a cryptocurrency project or ICO:

  1. Research the Team: Investigate the background of the project’s founders and team members. Look for their experience in the field, previous successful projects, and their online presence. A credible team is often transparent and accessible.
  2. Whitepaper Analysis: Carefully review the project’s whitepaper, which outlines its goals, technology, use cases, and roadmap. Ensure it provides comprehensive and detailed information about the project’s purpose and functionality.
  3. Community and Social Presence: Legitimate projects maintain an active and engaged community. Check their social media channels, forums, and communication platforms to gauge the project’s credibility and community involvement.
  4. Partnerships and Advisors: Genuine projects often collaborate with established industry partners and reputable advisors. Investigate the legitimacy of these partnerships to validate the project’s authenticity.
  5. Code and Technology: If the project is open-source, review the code on platforms like GitHub. A transparent and active development process indicates a commitment to the project’s success.
  6. Regulatory Compliance: Verify whether the project complies with relevant regulations and legal requirements. Projects that prioritise compliance demonstrate a commitment to long-term viability.
  7. Red Flags: Be cautious of projects promising unrealistic returns, lack of clear use cases, incomplete whitepapers, and teams that are difficult to verify.

It is important to be aware of common types of cryptocurrency fraud to protect your investments. Some common fraud scenarios we have experienced and seen with some clients include:

  1. Phishing Scams: Fraudsters impersonate legitimate organisations or individuals to trick you into revealing your private keys or login credentials. They often use fake websites or emails that look real.
  2. Ponzi Schemes: These promise high returns with little risk. They rely on new investors’ funds to pay returns to earlier investors, creating a cycle that eventually collapses.
  3. Fake Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs): Scammers create ICOs for non-existent projects or simply take your money and disappear. Always research thoroughly before investing in an ICO.
  4. Impersonation: Fraudsters pose as well-known figures in the cryptocurrency world on social media or email, urging you to send them cryptocurrency in exchange for promised returns.
  5. Fake Wallets and Exchanges: Fraudulent apps and websites mimic real wallets and exchanges, stealing your assets when you transfer them there.
  6. Malware and Hacks: Malicious software can infiltrate your device and steal your private keys, while hacks target exchanges and wallets, potentially causing loss of funds.
  7. Investment Clubs: These groups promise pooled investments and share profits. Be cautious, as these can easily turn into scams.
  8. Celebrity-Endorsed Scams: Fraudsters use celebrity endorsements to gain credibility. Remember that celebrities rarely endorse cryptocurrency projects.

There are several ways in which you can protect yourself against cryptocurrency fraud including:

Protecting yourself from phishing scams involving cryptocurrencies is crucial in today’s digital landscape. These scams can trick you into revealing sensitive information or sending your cryptocurrencies to fraudsters.

At Go Legal our lawyers have extensive experience in recovering cryptocurrency for clients and we have developed the Crypto Recovery Group which has the sole purpose to recover and education on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. We suggest that to protect you from phishing scams that you do the following:

  1. Verify URLs: Always double-check the website’s URL before entering any information. Fraudulent sites often mimic legitimate ones with slight variations. Make sure the URL starts with “https://” and has a padlock icon, indicating a secure connection.
  2. Beware of Emails: Be cautious of unsolicited emails asking for your personal or cryptocurrency information. Avoid clicking on links or downloading attachments from unknown senders. Even if the email looks genuine, verify its legitimacy independently.
  3. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Enable 2FA wherever possible. This adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification, like a text message or authentication app, in addition to your password.
  4. Use Strong Passwords: Create strong, unique passwords for your cryptocurrency accounts. Avoid using easily guessable information like birthdays or names. A combination of letters, numbers, and special characters is recommended.
  5. Educate Yourself: Stay informed about common phishing tactics. Scammers often use urgency, fear, or promises of easy gains to manipulate victims. Educating yourself can help you recognise red flags.
  6. Use Secure Wallets: If you’re holding cryptocurrencies, use reputable and secure wallets. Hardware wallets, also known as cold wallets, provide an extra layer of protection as they are offline and less susceptible to hacking.
  7. Keep Software Updated: Regularly update your operating system, browser, and antivirus software. Security patches help protect against known vulnerabilities.
  8. Check Social Media Accounts: Scammers might create fake social media accounts impersonating cryptocurrency projects or experts. Verify accounts through official websites or trusted sources before engaging.
  9. Trust Your Gut: If something feels off or too good to be true, it probably is. Take your time to research and verify information before making any decisions.

The best defence against phishing scams is a combination of vigilance and knowledge. By following these steps, you are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of your hard-earned cryptocurrencies. At Go Legal, we are here to support you in case you encounter any fraudulent activities or need legal assistance in cryptocurrency matters.

Yes, there is a government agency in the UK that handles cryptocurrency fraud complaints. It is called the “Action Fraud” agency which is part of the Police. Action Fraud is the national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime incidents in the UK. If you have fallen victim to cryptocurrency fraud or suspect fraudulent activities related to cryptocurrencies, you can report it to Action Fraud.

Reporting to Action Fraud is an important step as it helps law enforcement agencies understand the scale of cryptocurrency fraud and take appropriate actions.

What is Action Fraud?

Action Fraud is the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime. It is run by the City of London Police, and its primary purpose is to collect and analyse reports of fraud and cybercrime incidents from across the country.

How to Report Cryptocurrency Fraud to Action Fraud:

  1. Visit the Action Fraud Website: Go to the Action Fraud website ( to report the incident online. You will find a simple and secure online reporting form.
  2. Provide Details: Fill in the required details about the cryptocurrency fraud incident. Be as specific as possible and provide any evidence you have, such as transaction records or communication with the fraudster.
  3. Receive a Crime Reference Number: After submitting the report, you’ll receive a unique crime reference number. This number is important and can be used for reference when communicating with law enforcement or your legal counsel.

Reporting cryptocurrency fraud to Action Fraud serves multiple purposes:

  • Data Collection: Your report contributes to a better understanding of the scope and nature of cryptocurrency fraud in the UK. This helps law enforcement agencies tailor their responses and strategies.
  • Investigation: Action Fraud shares relevant information with law enforcement agencies, such as the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB). This information can aid in ongoing investigations and potentially lead to the identification of fraudsters.
  • Support: Reporting to Action Fraud can lead to support and guidance for victims. They provide advice on steps to take after reporting and how to protect yourself from further fraud.

Remember that reporting to Action Fraud is just the first step. If you have lost cryptocurrency due to fraud, seeking legal advice is crucial. At Go Legal, we specialise in cryptocurrency claims and can guide you through the legal process to recover your funds and hold fraudsters accountable.

Acting against cryptocurrency fraud not only helps you recover your assets but also contributes to a safer digital environment. By reporting fraud incidents, you are also playing a part in building a stronger defence against cybercrime in the UK.

Yes, you can pursue a claim against the cryptocurrency exchange for the mishandling of your transactions. If you have encountered issues like lost funds, unauthorised transactions, or technical glitches that affected your crypto trades, you can pursue a claim.

It is essential to document all relevant information, such as transaction details and communications with the exchange. Seeking legal advice from our cryptocurrency experts is important. At Go Legal, we are dedicated to assisting you in resolving such matters effectively and advocating for your best interests.

Recently we have seen several large cryptocurrency exchanges go bankrupt such as FTX. If a cryptocurrency exchange goes bankrupt, it can have significant implications for wallet holders who have large cryptocurrencies held. Your funds and assets held on the exchange could be at risk. However, there are steps you can take to navigate this challenging situation.

If you have any indications that the exchange might be facing financial troubles, it is wise to act promptly. Withdraw your cryptocurrencies and assets to a secure wallet under your control. This minimises your exposure to potential losses in case of bankruptcy.

You should also stay informed about the legal proceedings surrounding the exchange’s bankruptcy. Bankruptcy procedures involve court-appointed trustees who manage the distribution of remaining assets to creditors, including exchange users. It is crucial to provide any necessary documentation to establish your claim as a creditor (such as proof of debt). It is useful to stay connected on twitter and reddit, and other community forums to see if there are any relevant information.

Crucially it is important to engage experienced legal professionals specialising in cryptocurrency claims. Our expert lawyers can guide you through the legal processes, represent your interests, and advocate for a fair distribution of remaining assets. At Go Legal, we are well-versed in cryptocurrency-related matters and can help protect your rights.

By taking proactive steps and seeking professional guidance, you can navigate this situation with more confidence.

Yes, there is a time limit, commonly referred to as the limitation date, that applies to bringing cryptocurrency disputes to court in the UK. The time frame within which you must initiate legal action varies depending on the nature of the dispute and the specific legal grounds on which you are basing your claim. The applicable limitations are outlined in the Limitation Act 1980, which sets out the rules for various types of claims, including those involving cryptocurrencies.

  1. Contract Claims (Section 5): For contractual disputes related to cryptocurrencies, the Limitation Act generally stipulates a limitation period of six years. This means that you have six years from the date of the breach of the contract to file a claim in court.
  2. Tort Claims (Section 2): If your cryptocurrency dispute involves a tort, such as negligence or fraud, the limitation period is also six years from the date on which the cause of action occurred. This could be the date when you suffered harm or became aware of the fraudulent activity.
  3. Fraudulent Misrepresentation Claims (Section 32): In cases of fraudulent misrepresentation, where someone intentionally misleads you, the limitation period is extended to six years from the date when you discovered the fraud or could reasonably have discovered it, even if that’s more than six years after the initial fraudulent act.

It is important to remember that the limitation periods mentioned above are subject to certain exceptions and nuances, and they can vary based on individual circumstances. Missing the prescribed time limit may result in your claim being time-barred, meaning you lose the legal right to pursue it in court.

To ensure that you do not miss any deadlines and to understand the specific limitations that apply to your cryptocurrency dispute, it is highly advisable to seek legal counsel from our lawyers. Our experienced team of cryptocurrency legal experts can assess your case, provide you with accurate advice, and guide you through the process of initiating legal action if necessary.

Funding a cryptocurrency legal dispute is a crucial consideration, and there are several options available to help you navigate the financial aspect of pursuing your case. At Go Legal, we understand that legal expenses can be a concern, and we are here to assist you in exploring the best approach for your situation.

  1. Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs), or “No Win, No Fee”: This arrangement is designed to minimise your financial risk. With a CFA, commonly known as “No Win, No Fee,” you will not have to pay legal fees upfront. Instead, our fees are contingent on the success of your case. If you win, we are paid a percentage of the compensation awarded or awarded a success fee.
  2. Legal Expenses Insurance: If you have legal expenses insurance, it may cover the costs of your cryptocurrency legal dispute. This insurance is often included as an add-on to other insurance policies, such as home or car insurance. Check your insurance policies to see if legal expenses coverage is available and applicable to your case.
  3. Private Funding or Third-Party Funding: In some cases, individuals or organisations may offer to fund your legal dispute in exchange for a share of any compensation awarded. This option can help you proceed with your case while sharing the financial risk. It is important to carefully review the terms of any third-party funding arrangement.
  4. Self-Funding: If you are financially able, you can choose to self-fund your cryptocurrency legal dispute. This involves paying your legal fees and associated costs directly. While this option provides you with greater control, it is important to assess the potential costs and risks involved. We can agree discounted fixed fees or agree for our work to be carried out on an hourly rate basis. Our fees are always reasonable and transparent, and we will discuss this with you further in our initial consultation at the outset.

At Go Legal, we recognise that each case is unique, and we are committed to helping you find the funding solution that works best for you. Our team of experienced cryptocurrency legal professionals can assess your case, discuss your funding options, and provide you with a clear understanding of the costs involved.

When you approach us with your cryptocurrency legal dispute, we will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the potential expenses, guide you through the funding options, and help you make informed decisions. Our goal is to make the legal process as transparent and manageable as possible, enabling you to pursue your case with confidence and peace of mind.

Yes. We consider each claim on a case-by-case basis and we will discuss the different funding options with you to assess what type of funding arrangement would be in your best interest including whether you have an existing insurance policy in place which may provide a contribution towards your legal costs.
