Following the excellent and informative presentation on 16 May 2019 by Elmar Sonnenschein on Blockchain technology, Steve Swientozielskyj from CIMA has sent us a link to the CIMA website which provides further details and information on Blockchain. We provide the links in the text below.

Technology is creating new opportunities for the accounting profession, and we are working to help members like you stay ahead. I am pleased to share with you our latest insights, this time on the emerging world of blockchain.

Whilst it may be on the periphery of your thinking right now, according to theWorld Economic Forum 10% of global gross domestic product (GDP), or several trillion pounds’ worth of value, is likely to be stored on the blockchain by 2027. It is no wonder the likes of JPMorgan, Starbucks and Porsche, and the Big Four accounting firms are all exploring its potential for transformative impact.

Take our quiz to see whether you are blockchain ready. Our free blockchain guidewill introduce the technology and guide you on how it will affect the world of business. This adds to the Digital Mindset Resource Centre we have created through the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants to help you exploit the world of digital finance.

Stay connected over the next few months as we release new resources on digital disruption, including cybersecurity, data analytics and ethics.
