Description

After more than 10 years in the market place, Bitcoin has been firmly planted in the global financial system as the de facto leader in the crypto currency market. Bitcoin is no longer looked at as a mystical concept of money made of pixie dust. Bitcoin has evolved to be a major force in the financial technology (FinTech) industry. At this point in time, the total market valuation of Bitcoin is over $750 billion and if it were a company, it would be among the top 10 companies in terms of market capitalization.

As a CPA advising your clients on financial matters, it is imperative that you have a fundamental understanding of Bitcoin and how it all works. This course provides you with a solid base of Bitcoin knowledge so that you will be confidant in having those client conversations, as well participating in the Bitcoin ecosystem.
