Training accounting and auditing professionals in blockchain technology

Blockchain is an emerging technology with potential to create new foundations for our economic and social systems, and it is therefore critical for professional services such as accounting and auditing to broadly understand how it works and what it can do. However, like many new technologies, blockchain is difficult to initially comprehend, and is hampered by negative rhetoric and connotations. To address this, this project aims to demystify blockchain for professionals by reducing the technology to its core principles, understand how these impact accounting and auditing processes and the profession more broadly. It will then build on these insights to design training materials and tools that convey blockchain in plain language to build a foundational understanding amongst accountants and auditors, and empower them and their organizations to enable and benefit from the emergence of blockchain-based applications.
