KPMG Report: Total BlackBoard Investment 2018 Total 2017
Fresh analysis from KPMG shows that blockchain investment in the U.S. in the first half of 2018 has exceeded the overall total seen in 2017, according to its biannual “The Pulse of Fintech” report released today, July 31.
KPMG is one of the world’s largest auditing firms, collectively known as “The Big Four” — alongside Deloitte, Ernst & Young and PwC.
It highlighted that the U.S. has already seen total investment in blockchain outstrip the annual total posted in 2017.
New blockchain consortia have continued to “crop up,” in particular those that are focused on developing blockchain-powered supply chain management solutions.
In the wider fintech landscape, KPMG indicates that U.S.-based fintech firms have seen a surge in venture capital (VC) funding — exceeding $5 billion in the first half of 2018.
