Implications of Blockchain Technology in Financial Markets Logo aicpa

  Free |   AICPA |   28 Apr 2017 |   Specialized Knowledge and Applications |   AICPA Store

Blockchain, distributed ledgers and smart contracts represent a seismic shift in how financial markets, and all aspects of the global economy, operate. In the same way that the internet gave us a powerful way to share and access information, blockchain technology now gives us a powerful way to share and access value.
