PwC to provide its expertise to help shape the future cryptocurrency ecosystem

Most investors in the cryptocurrency space are in search of stable fiat-pegged cryptocurrencies, but such assets need to have a reserve ledger that can provide 100 percent transparency, in order to provide value. PwC brings to the table its experience that will provide a valuable outlook on how to enhance standards to facilitate an even more transparent set of stablecoins and reserve functions. It will also offer valuable insights when it comes to risk management, security, and governance to help shape the future of cryptocurrency ecosystem as well as any associated industry practices.

The world is moving towards decentralisation, transparency, and accountability

Speaking about the commitment of PwC’s in the partnership, the co-founder and President of Cred, Dan Schacht, explained:

PwC’s commitment to the crypto community at large sends a very strong message to retail investors, mainstream financial services providers and the crypto enthusiasts that the world is moving toward decentralisation, transparency and accountability in a system that will evolve beyond the need for trusted intermediaries.

He further noted that:

This will help the ecosystem evaluate key considerations as standards are enhanced relative to the creation and management of stablecoins and universal digital assets that support mass adoption of crypto assets.
