We believe that Blockchain has the potential to powerfully disrupt many aspects of how businesses and economies work; even how societies are organised. Blockchain goes to the core of the role of trust in markets – an area that is central to PwC’s purpose.
We understand how Blockchain can revolutionise a broad range of industries – not only financial services, but also government, healthcare, education, energy, entertainment and media, and consumer markets.
We focus on a set of core Blockchain offerings in cryptocurrency and payments, smart contracts, supply chain, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) security, DLT assurance, and identity. Transform your business in the digital age from strategy, through design, to execution.
Our Blockchain team is supported by a global workforce of over 5,000 digital experts spread across 11 experience centers in PwC’s global network of firms. Our experience centers are focused on innovation and design thinking, delivering development expertise and ultimately helping one build and implement digital projects.
We are key participants in the ecosystem that is defining the way forward for Blockchain technology with our membership in the Crypto Valley Association.
