The Challenges in Auditing Digital Assets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this course we'll cover the challenges in getting comfortable with the auditing of digital assets: Custody, existence and ownership, accuracy and completeness of data, valuation and smart contracts.

You will learn the tools that are available and how a traditional auditor can get comfortable with these types of assets to then give investors the comfort they need. We'll take a look at blockchain explorers and look at some live examples of Ethereum smart contracts.

What will students learn?
You will leave the session with an understanding about block explorers, how to use private key signatures, and Exchange API's, as well as a high level look at smart contract reliance.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry and professionals who want to understand the basics of auditing digital assets.
