MATRIS @MARBLE 2023
On the 13th of July, Marlene Koelbing from the DEFSYS team of MATRIS attended the 4th International Conference on Mathematical Research and Blockchain Economy (MARBLE) for a talk about a paper on a mathematical approach to the use of integer partitions for smurfing in cryptocurrencies (by Bernhard Garn, Klaus Kieseberg, Ceren Culha, Marlene Koelbing, and Dimitris Simos). In her talk, she showed how to utilize the integer partitions to generate splittings of money amounts to avoid falling under regulations. Furthermore, she proposed a proactive offensive approach for anti-money laundering, in contrast to the common ex-post analysis of transaction data. The talk continued later with a Q&A session, leading to an engaging discussion.
