Investment in blockchain technology for the financial industry is booming in the U.S., according to KPMG.

The accounting firm says in its “Pulse of Fintech 2018” report that U.S. venture capital investments in financial-related blockchain firms during the first half of the year exceeded the total for 2017.

KMPG says the investments this year have focused on more experienced companies and consortia looking for additional funding rounds rather than on startups.
