1. A method, using a computer processor and a physical memory, comprising:

  • determining that a propagation packet is a transaction of a cryptographic currency propagating across a network for integration into a peer-verification ledger, the transaction comprising a value transfer of the cryptographic currency between an input key-address of an input of the transaction and an output key-address of an output of the transaction;

    extracting an IP address from a TCP/IP layer of the propagation packet associated with the transaction;

    extracting, from the transaction, a transactional hash associated with the input of the transaction, the transactional hash referencing a previous output of a previous transaction;

    analyzing the peer-verification ledger to determine the input key-address associated with transactional hash referencing the previous output;

    extracting the input key-address of the input of the transaction of the cryptographic currency propagating across the network for integration into the peer-verification ledger;

    linking the IP address from the TCP/IP layer of the propagation packet with the input key-address of the input of the transaction; and

    determining the input key-address of the input of the transaction is under a suspected control of a user of interest based upon an association between the user of interest and the IP address extracted from the TCP/IP layer of the propagation packet of the transaction.
