Accounting Metaverse

There's a lot going on in the accounting metaverse! We've got a ton of takeaways from Sage Transform (the annual Sage Intacct conference), some excellent listener feedback on crypto, to which we provide clarification on our crypto "beliefs," and questions. There's a ton of techy accounting app news, including Expensify's IPO, Xero's Square of Locate Inventory, Toast earnings, and new feature releases from, Melio, and Relay Financial. We'll also discuss Legal Zoom's acquisition of Earth Class Mail, and inspect funding rounds by Wrapbook, ZenWork, and Knowify.
