Connecticut CPA Magazine Feature: How Blockchain Is Becoming an Essential Tool for the Exchange of Value


By Geoff Hopkins, Director, Technology and Management Consulting, RSM US LLP

In the November/December 2017 issue of Connecticut CPA magazine we provided an introduction to the peer-to-peer autonomous ledger system known as blockchain in Geoff Hopkin’s piece, “Blockchain Brings Exponential Disruption, Growth Potential to Accounting.” In that article, Geoff discussed how blockchain could completely change the face of the accounting profession.

In this second piece, Geoff will delve deeper into the rapidly evolving world of cryptocurrencies and how businesses and governments are harnessing the power of blockchain to track the exchange of value.
