Course Description

Course Description

One of the most talked about emerging technologies that has the potential to significantly disrupt the accounting profession is BLOCKCHAIN. This CPE webinar is designed to bring you up to speed on what this revolutionary technology is all about. Blockchain has the potential to enhance the accounting profession by reducing the costs of maintaining and reconciling ledgers, and providing absolute certainty over the ownership and history of assets. Blockchain could help accountants gain clarity over the available resources and obligations of their organisations, and also free up resources to concentrate on planning and valuation, rather than record-keeping.

In this CPE webinar, Gilded CFO Joey Ryan, CPA will discuss :

  • Why it's imperative for accountants to understand digital assets (also known as crypto, cryptocurrency, digital currency)
  • How you can grow your practice by accepting digital asset clients?
  • How Gilded uses blockchain technology to enable triple-entry accounting—a new technology that improves the automation and audibility of accounting records
  • Tax and GAAP implications
  • DeFi & CeFi
  • Triple Entry Accounting

Blockchain technology will irrevocably change the course of the accounting industry. But this is not the end of the profession—this is an opportunity. Are you prepared for the future? No prior knowledge of blockchain or cryptocurrency is necessary. At the end of the webinar, there will also be a Q&A session. 

Learning Objectives

  • To recall the origins of cryptocurrency and how it's being used today by both businesses and individuals.
  • To identify the fundamentals of blockchain technology in accounting terms and how this technology will ultimately impact the profession.
  • To identify how digital assets are accounted for and other special considerations for this new asset class.
  • To identify the fundamentals of DeFi/CeFi and the initial accounting considerations surrounding these new fintech systems.
  • To identify the tools available to simplify and automate the accounting process for digital assets.
  • To identify about the next era of accounting innovation and what it means for your practice today.
