Blockchain is a business and accounting tool that has the prospect of changing the way organizations handle money. Its built-in safeguards prevent electronic hacking of financial accounts. Beyond accounting, it has the potential for securing the authenticity of court documents and even identities. But are we willing to pay the cost of Blockchain technology? Paul Embley and Di Graski explore the opportunities to courts and the limits of this technology.
This is a fascinating episode for listeners interested in trial courts, court administration, emerging technologies, digital security, and accounting and finance, and emergency response plans.
