By CCN: Consensus 2019 is in full swing; booth and aisles are bustling with people, taking over the Hilton Midtown Hotel. We sat in on sessions with Deloitte, wanting to hear why they recently moved from Ethereum to VeChain.
After the panel, we were able to sit down with Antonio Senatore, global CTO of Deloitte’s blockchain project, and discuss the firm’s involvement in blockchain development.
