Deloitte and Digital Asset Announce Alliance to Help Organizations Drive Business Transformation in the Emerging Digital Economy

Deloitte and Digital Asset today announced a strategic alliance to help organizations develop, build, and launch smart-contract and blockchain-based solutions.

Blockchain and digital asset technologies present an incredible opportunity for businesses, whether in banking, capital markets, insurance, healthcare or bringing transparency to the supply chain. According to Deloitte’s Tech Trends 2023 report, “blockchain-powered ecosystems are becoming key not only to developing and monetizing digital assets but also to creating digital trust.” By joining forces, Deloitte and Digital Asset can reinforce this trust, helping clients use the technology to solve complex problems while working within the required regulatory frameworks. 

Why this matters
One of the biggest challenges to adopting blockchain and digital assets technology is the lack of understanding and expertise in the technology, in addition to the regulatory uncertainty surrounding the use of blockchain and digital assets. 

This alliance will combine Deloitte's experience in strategy, implementation, and operations, as well as risk, regulatory, cyber security, and tax, with Digital Asset's proven technology to help drive innovation and create new business opportunities. Together, Deloitte and Digital Asset will provide customers with a comprehensive set of solutions for their business needs.
