For episode 24, I could not be more excited to have Will White, a Chartered Accountant, who completed his ICAEW course and has had a unique career trajectory.

Will started working at PWC where he was part of the administrators team of the famous Lehmann Brothers case, and continued to be an advisor at numerous Fintech companies, Neo Banks and Venture Capital Firms.

Will is not your typical accountant, and being also a tech enthusiast, was an early advocate for crypto.

Today Will is a founding team member at Twali, a decentralized job marketplace for freelancers.If you’re an expert in accounting, tax, legal, HR and a lot of more, Twali is building a platform to help you cross the chasm and work in Web3.

In this episode, you will learn;


The different ways to work in Web3 today;
The idea of building on chain verificable reputation;
How can contributor in DAOs earn bounties/rewards for work done;
Emerging skills for accountants and finance professionals to have for Web3 and much more.



This episode is brought to you by AuditChain - the world's first decentralized continuous audit and real time reporting protocol.

Traditional audit methodology focuses on “materiality”, not accuracy. We are constrained by time and cannot audit 100% of the transactions, and therefore we perform sampling.

AuditChain decentralizes audit and uses an independent assurance methodology that automates auditing tasks, and continuously audits 100% of the transactions.

With AuditChain, Chartered Accountants and professionals will write and own Process Control NFTs that automate internal and disclosure controls, where these NFTs pay royalties in return.

With more and more automation, accountants will increasingly find themselves becoming redundant. If you are a forward thinking CPA or Chartered Accountant, and want to participate and be in touch with the latest developments from AuditChain in decentralizing the audit profession using blockchain, you should apply for membership by visiting DCARPE Alliance.

If you enjoy the podcast, would you please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes. It takes less than 60 seconds, and it really makes a difference in helping to convince hard-to-get guests. Together we can help accountants prepare themselves for a blockchain future.
