Distributed ledgers and blockchain are powerful and challenging technologies for business and accounting. They are powerful because of their potential to create new social and economic models much like the new business models enabled by Internet technology; they are challenging because of their complexity and our lack of understanding.
To reduce the mystery and to highlight the power of these technologies, we are pleased to present this publication on distributed ledger technology and blockchain in collaboration with an important academic stakeholder, the Master of Management and Professional Accounting (MMPA) Program at the Institute for Management and Innovation, University of Toronto.
The thought papers gathered within this publication complement our existing guidance publications on cryptocurrency and blockchain. These thought papers introduce the possibilities, limitations, and disruption the technologies present and open readers' eyes to new ways of becoming involved.
As influential leaders in their respective disciplines, these thought leaders bring a unique and valuable perspective on blockchain.
We invite you to read on and join the conversation. If you have blockchain ideas impacting CPAs that you want to share, email Michael Wong, principal, Technology, Research, Guidance and Support, CPA Canada.
