A whistleblower award is a payment you can receive from the U.S. government for providing information on companies who commit fraud, bribery or tax evasion. This can be an FCPA, SEC, CFTC or IRS violation. This includes violations relating to cryptocurrency and fraud or bribery in a public procurement. In 2012 the U.S. government started rewarding brave individuals (often called whistleblowers) for providing information on corporate crime and so far has paid out over $2 billion. The average SEC award now stands at over $4 million.
