About WalletFind

According to Investopedia, the field of cryptocurrencies is constantly expanding, with around 8000 cryptocurrencies in existence currently. Of that according to the WalletFind team – the criminal share of all cryptocurrency activity was around 10B in transaction volume in 2020; and tens of billions worth have been locked by people who’ve forgotten their key.

As a solution, the collaborators have developed WalletFind – a standalone automated cryptocurrency e-discovery and auditing software that can be used to identify and extract cryptocurrency artefacts. 

WalletFind offers customers the ability to perform automatic deep cryptocurrency forensics to recover their forgotten passwords or restore their corrupted or deleted data for software and hardware-based wallets. It also has the capability of conducting e-Discovery forensics to track, trace and monitor illicit transactions associated with a digital wallet; or perform auditing tasks.

The WalletFind Team

With experience in Forensics, Security, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain, this innovation is the result of a collaboration between academics from the University of Bristol, the University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University. 

The team consists of:  

  • Dr Sana Belguith, Security Expert and Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Cyber Security at University of Bristol 
  • Dr Tooska Dargahi, Security Expert and Lecturer in Computer Network Security and Cyber Security, University of Salford
  • Prof. Mohammad Hammoudeh, Blockchain Expert and Chair in Cyber Security, Manchester Metropolitan University

“CyberASAP made us discover a whole new world. We have learnt a lot about business processes and we feel that we are now capable of taking our project to the next stage.”

Dr Sana Belguith
