Need an audit for your blockchain/crypto/DLT company? What to expect and how to prepare
3rd Floor | Rotunda Room (Deloitte lounge)

Blockchain, distributed ledger, and cryptocurrency companies come with their unique set of risks and challenges. Audits of financial statements and IT systems/platforms can provide reasonable assurance to stakeholders related to the financial statements. Specifically, assurance for IT systems can be important to customers who rely on your blockchain solution as part of their business process. And audits of financial statements can provide reasonable assurance to users of financial statements including current and potential investors, boards, regulators, and customers. We will also highlight some of the more popular risks and challenges along with some leading practices in how to navigate. The word “audit” sounds scary, but it doesn’t have to be!
