Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers

PwC's Academy


Start: Ondefinéiert


Blockchain and distributed ledger technology has the potential to transform various activities that are fundamental to our businesses such as payments, back-office processes, contracts and agreements, record keeping, reconciliation and settlement. In fact, this transformation could already be witnessed thanks to the efforts of numerous financial institutions, industries, governments, as well as major stakeholders of the technology sector in exploring the opportunities, risks associated, and in evolving the overall domain. Such developments are bound to generate higher adoption of the blockchain technology in the near future.

In this context, you may face challenges such as the following:

  • Which blockchain uses cases could transform my business processes and improve transparency and trust across the value chain?
  • What is the impact of joining the blockchain ecosystem comprising my partners and/or clients?
  • What tokenization will change in my current business?
  • How to develop a Decentralised Application?
  • What are the risks involved?
  • Which set of tools are useful to track assets?

PwC Luxembourg has developed a course that will help you in gaining in-depth awareness and in tapping the real potential of this disruptive domain. For this course, we have combined our unique blockchain expertise with our depth of industry knowledge so that you could kick-start and accelerate your blockchain strategy in a robust and effective manner.
