The consulting firm Pwc (PricewaterhouseCooper) will create, together with the blockchain company Bitfury Group, a series of new blockchain products
Pwc and services to companies
You have to know that Pwc as a company service company is second only to the giant Deloitte, with a turnover of 41 billion dollars in the last year.
It provides companies all over the world with guaranteed strategic, tax, legal advice and audit services.
Pwc and Exonum
The PricewaterhouseCooper isn’t new to the blockchain technology, it has in fact already used Bitfury’s open source framework, called Exonum, for seminars and courses.
Exonum uses the Rust language, which allows very high levels of security and performance
The study just concluded by the Pwc on the blockchain technology in the energy sector, has highlighted its enormous potential.
The “block chain” could in fact revolutionize the entire global energy sector,
thanks to automated business processes, reduction of personnel costs, and infrastructure.
The Bitfury company sells components used by miners to extract cryptocurrency, is based in London and was founded in 2011, it also has offices in many countries in the world.
It’s known by mining farms for its famous BlockBox, a standard 40-foot container with 176 servers inside it, with a 14 PH/s hashrate.
Last year they inaugurated Bitfury Surround, which with its blockchain platform called SurroundTM, allows you to share music on the web.

Blockchain acceleration, PwC’s short term projects
