KPMG Switzerland has agreed a strategic partnership with the Crypto Valley Association, one of the world’s leading blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystems. This commitment reflects KPMG’s ongoing investment in digital innovation and transformation.
A leading provider of audit, tax and advisory services, KPMG Switzerland is an innovator in the area of digital transformation. Its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and Blockchain specialists already operate from the heart of Zug’s Crypto Valley, where they effectively help blockchain and cryptocurrency start-ups navigate the ICO process, structuring and compliance in Switzerland and abroad.
Against this background, KPMG Switzerland has agreed a strategic partnership with the Crypto Valley Association (CVA), one of the leading blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystems. This commitment reflects KPMG’s ongoing investment in digital innovation and transformation.
The CVA’s mission is to develop the world’s best ecosystem for blockchain and other cryptographic technologies and businesses. Its major activities are driven by targeted working groups with the support of key players from the startup community, industry, science and government.
KPMG applies its multidisciplinary approach for blockchain and ICO organizations, advanced knowledge of their specific cyber risks as well as a deep understanding of business needs, regulatory demands and legal requirements. This, combined with extremely close cooperation with the authorities, makes KPMG the ideal strategic partner to lead the new working groups on Tax/Accounting/Structuring and Cyber Security.
Frank Lampert, Partner Tax and responsible for blockchain and crypto business at KPMG Switzerland, says: “Blockchain technology is set to revolutionize many aspects of business, industry and society. We are proud to actively contribute to the success of digital Switzerland through a strategic partnership with the CVA.”
Oliver Bussmann, President of the Crypto Valley Association, said: “This announcement marks a significant milestone for our organization. Over the past six months the CVA has enjoyed explosive growth, far surpassing our expectations. While welcome, this growth has stretched our resources. Our new Strategic Partners will help us build a more solid foundation.”
