“What is certain [...] is that Bitcoin kept its promise as the first peer-to-peer payment mechanism that cannot be compromised and is based on a decentralised trust model,” said the firm.

PwC Luxembourg did not provide details on its tech partner for the move, except that it has “closely collaborated with a local regulated exchange” to provide the “best” payment experience.

Earlier this year, PwC launched an updated auditing solution for its clients who hold cryptocurrencies. The auditing solution, called Halo, offers a full breakdown of clients’ crypto treasury and tracks blockchain transactions to provide “independent, substantive evidence [...] needed to establish ownership of cryptocurrency.”
