Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Use Case: May 2022 Coffee Q&A: Eric Cohen
Friday, May 20, 2022 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (EDT)
We’ll take a deeper dive into how a blockchain works, what is “store of value” and practical industry use during part two of our Cryptocurrency Coffee Q&A.
Technology expert Eric E. Cohen, owner of Cohen Computer Consulting, will lead the discussion.
Eric is a national expert on ISO/TC 307 blockchain, distributed ledger technologies and the ITU-T Digital Currencies Global Initiative. He believes in the vision that soon a piece of business information, once entered into any computer, anywhere, will never need to be retyped as it flows through the audit reporting supply chain.
Cohen Computer Consulting is an accounting technology consultancy. Educated and licensed as a Certified Public Accountant, Eric was drawn to computers early in his career (although the attraction has not always been mutual). From programming a check reconciliation program for the IBM 5110-2 (a precursor to the IBM PC), to gaining a reputation as a Lotus 1-2-3 wizard, to a long career implementing accounting software (from the days when “user friendly” was only a dream and even “user tolerable” was still rare), Eric gained a unique perspective on how accounting, audit and technology should work together.
