Dubbed the Big 4, the four largest accounting firms in the world are officially part of the blockchain revolution that's actively changing the world! The Big 4 includes: Deloitte, Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and KPMG.
Let's breakdown how each of them are implementing CryptoCurrency.
Deloitte has been dabbling in Crypto for years. Beginning in 2014, they launched Rubix, "a blockchain offering that provides advisory services and builds distributed applications for clients across sectors, including the government." In 2016, they launched their first and second Blockchain labs, AND joined the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance (EEA) as well as the Hyperledger Project by the Linux Foundation in May 2017. Most recently, they've partnered with Waves Platform for “providing clients with comprehensive initial coin offering (ICO) services and customized blockchain solutions tailored for specific business tasks.” These guys have embraced crypto to such extremes that they've even installed a BTC ATM in their Toronto Office!
Ernst & Young
