The vast majority of the online crime cases, we don’t even know which continent the attacks are coming from. And even if we are able to find online criminals, quite often there is no outcome.

Prices are important not because money is considered paramount but because prices are a fast and effective conveyor of information through a vast society in which fragmented knowledge must be coordinated.
