SEC Accountant Wants Auditor to Keep an Eye on Cryptocurrencies
The U.S Securities and Exchange Commission’s top accountant has a message: private practitioners should hone their cryptocurrency skills.
That recommendation of sorts was featured in a speech today by Wesley Bricker, who serves as chief accountant for the U.S. securities regulator.
Bricker revealed that his office is investigating “cryptocurrencies, coins, tokens and so forth,” as well as the ways in which they are exchanged and traded.
I have not heard particularly good rationales for turning off – or never turning on – the profession’s lamps at this time.”
The group said in its report that the technology could reshape the way in which accountants make money.
