Request Network, a blockchain based payment solution platform, announced earlier that it has forged an alliance with PwC France and Francophone Africa Blockchain Lab.

The collaboration between the three entities will accelerate research and development for customized blockchain solutions pertaining to business and financial functions.

Request Network along with the Blockchain Lab of PwC France and Francophone Africa will contribute with their collective experience to achieve the aforementioned goal and deploy blockchain solutions that could serve the needs of a corporation as large as PwC, while also facilitating systems such as Francophone Africa.

Speaking on the development, co-founder of the Request Network Foundation, Christophe Lassuyt, stated that the organization is looking forward to develop blockchain solutions with its new partners, mentioning that the collaboration will act as “a bridge between the corporate and blockchain industries.”

Another founder, Etienne Tatur, commented:

“Combining our cutting edge blockchain technology with the experience of a trusted business partner offers corporations the best of both worlds. It allows a smooth business transformation.”

This partnership will shape and collectively develop the future of professional services, taking a leading role in offering solutions to clients’ needs of on-boarding blockchain to their business practices.

The request network pwc partnership is an important one for Request Network which is seeking to make a significant difference in the payments era through automated tax accounting, decentralized payments and more interesting features.  This partnership ahead of their mainnet launch allows their investors and collaborators to have more confidence in the team, and the foundation, letting them know that the team is capable focusing on the right activities that will make a difference in the short term and the long term.

In addition, the thought leadership group that will be formed as a part of this request network pwc collaboration may allow the Request Network team to have a say and influence in one of the leading multinational professional services network and auditing firms in the world.

A representative commented that “this partnership is great way for us to share knowledge and expertise. We are working very hard to build a common centre of excellence dedicated to the financial industry, which will accelerate mainstream adoption of financial blockchain products.”

As Request Network is focusing on providing solutions to both consumers and professionals in automating and accounting for auditing, it seems like the request network pwc  partnership could have significant bearing for both parties.

Pwc is serious about blockchain development

While this is a major development for Request Network, Francophone Africa and PwC France, it is not PwC’s first foray into blockchain.

The company, being one of the largest corporations in the world with offices in more than 158 countries, has been working with blockchain technology in order to find a right fit for its global presence.

PwC China is currently availing solutions from VeChain, another blockchain platform, which is focusing on aiding PwC’s Asian markets to adopt blockchain technology in an optimal manner.
