Revenue Recognition Daily Rate

I'm trying to find a source that explicitly states straightlined revenue needs to be done on a daily rate.  Any help would be appreciated.  I'd prefer something authoritative (FASB or SEC), though an accounting firm article or guide would be helpful as well.

I don't think you'll find it. I've been at companies where the auditor allowed software maintenance to be monthly, or mid-month convention, and elsewhere where the auditor required it to be allocated/amortized to a specific day. But if you're at a public company it's more likely it will need to be daily.

My current client is transitioning into daily rev rec based upon virtual currency transactions. I have asked a similar question of PWC (client's auditor). When I get the guidance I can forward on. J.D. Floyd
