Blockchain as a carrier technology for crypto currencies and smart contracts, among other things, is becoming increasingly important. Grant Thornton Austria offers comprehensive audit and confirmation services for block chain technologies and business models.

The auditing of crypto currencies and other block chain-based digital assets is characterized by a high degree of complexity. This is due to the rapid changes and volatility of the market, the lack of comprehensive regulations on crypto-assets and the fact that certain technologies are still under development.
