Deloitte seeks crypto experts

Big Four accounting firm Deloitte is ramping up its crypto expertise, actively seeking individuals with cryptocurrency knowledge to join its team. While other “Big Four” accounting firms like Ernst & Young, KPMG, and PricewaterhouseCoopers have no crypto-related job openings, Deloitte has over 300 in the United States alone, with almost all of them posted just a week ago on LinkedIn.

Deloitte has several job titles related to cryptocurrency, such as Blockchain & Digital Assets Manager, which is available in 97 different locations across the United States. Other job titles include Tax Manager, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency, available in 18 U.S. locations, and Tax Manager, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency in NFTs, with openings in three US locations.

The role of Blockchain & Digital Assets Manager lists responsibilities to include providing various services such as financial statement audit, internal controls specific to blockchain and digital assets, audit readiness for blockchain and digital asset transactions, IPO readiness and SEC reporting services, SPAC transactions and accounting advisory services for digital asset transactions.

Applicants for the role of Tax Manager will manage teams providing tax advisory and compliance services to a diverse range of clients, including those in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries. The responsibilities include leading clients in legal entity structuring and analyzing tokens and deals, among others.

This move comes as Deloitte signals its continued support and interest in Web3 and crypto. In February, the firm announced a partnership with Vatom, a Web3 platform, to provide immersive experiences to different industries. This collaboration offers various opportunities for companies looking to enhance culture using virtual reality, as well as for brands aiming to improve community engagement.

Circle reportedly hired Deloitte to audit its proof-of-reserves in January, further solidifying Deloitte’s interest and involvement in the crypto space.

As of now, LinkedIn has received over 1,000 applications from multiple locations for the different job roles, and there are several crossover listings on Deloitte’s website. It is unclear if these positions that Deloitte seeks to fill were advertised previously.

This move by Deloitte reflects the increasing demand for cryptocurrency experts as more businesses and industries explore the potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies. With its extensive reach and expertise in accounting, consulting, financial advisory, risk advisory, tax, and legal services, Deloitte is well-positioned to provide top-notch services to its clients in the crypto and blockchain space.

Binance expands with blockchain hub in Georgia

Binance, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, is expanding its global reach with the opening of a new blockchain hub in Georgia. The move is aimed at promoting further adoption of cryptocurrencies in the country, creating more job opportunities, and attracting talent to the Georgian blockchain sector.

Binance referred to the hub as a “Web3 outpost,” and it intends to use it to promote industry education and innovation, as well as to organize educational and hackathon events. The hub is expected to create dozens of new jobs by the end of 2023, in addition to the 25 people already employed by Binance’s Georgia division.

Georgia has become a hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain companies due to its favorable regulatory environment and low electricity costs. In recent years, the country has attracted a growing number of blockchain startups and has become known for its progressive approach to crypto regulation.

Binance’s expansion into Georgia is part of the company’s broader strategy to expand its global reach and promote the adoption of cryptocurrencies around the world. The company has been actively seeking out new markets and partnerships, and has launched a number of new initiatives aimed at increasing awareness and adoption of cryptocurrencies.

In addition to its blockchain hub in Georgia, Binance has also launched a number of other initiatives aimed at promoting the adoption of cryptocurrencies. These include Binance Academy, an educational platform that provides free online courses on blockchain and cryptocurrency, and Binance Launchpad, a platform that helps blockchain startups raise funds through initial coin offerings (ICOs).

Binance’s expansion into Georgia is a positive sign for the global crypto industry, which has faced regulatory challenges in many countries. By opening a new blockchain hub in a crypto-friendly country like Georgia, Binance is helping to further legitimize the use of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, and is paving the way for greater adoption and innovation in the industry.
