As the digital currency bitcoin continues to make inroads into the financial world, more and more finance professionals, advisors, attorneys, and accountants are coming into contact with it. But there isn’t any kind of standardized base of knowledge for them to draw upon. That gave one man an idea.
On Tuesday, the Digital Currency Council, a consultancy and education center that aims to be a resource for legal, accountants, and finance professionals and the brainchild of David Berger, opened its doors in lower Manhattan. Essentially, the idea is to bring bitcoin’s proverbial three R’s to Wall Street. The group will offer certificate-level classes and courses designed to provide a broad understanding of digital currencies.
