Smart Contracts for Accountants

Includes a Live Web Event on 02/22/2023 at 2:00 PM (EST)

This course provides a concise overview of smart contracts. These are computer codes that automatically manage business agreements and execute legal contracts. They are triggered when predetermined conditions are met, and can automate many enterprise processes and tasks. While still emerging and standards continue to evolve, smart contracts are on course to radically transform commerce.  The technology eliminates many middlemen and frictions to accelerate transactions, improve accuracy, sharpen transparency, and increase the velocity of money.   You’ll walk away with a foundational awareness of smart contract principles, and how accountants can use this technology to boost their relevance, value and revenue.
