The Challenges in Auditing Digital Assets
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.
