ICAEW International Thought Leadership Roadshow
The Future of Money (crypto-currencies)
Will Bitcoin take over the world? Many say they are the next step in the evolution of money as cash usage diminishes and new ways of paying like mobile phones increase in prevalence. Crypto-currencies also offer the advantages of financial privacy and offering peer-to-peer interactions. However, Mark Carney (Bank of England) and Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan) are not so sure they will be the next big thing.
The presentation will look at the benefits and risks around crypto-currencies. It will discuss the different regulatory approaches around the world, how to think about the accounting treatment, the tax treatment and the underlying technology. The recent ICAEW publication and tech essential guide will be discussed.
