[ENG] #220 - Florian Wimmer (Blockpit) - Track crypto investments and outsmart your taxes

CEO and co-founder

Season 1, episode 220
31 min / Published

About three years ago, I began to explore the story of Florian, an early cryptocurrency advocate and tax expert with experience at one of the Big Four accounting firms.

Nearly a decade ago, Florian grappled with the tax declaration challenges that all crypto holders face. Currently, a minority accurately report their crypto earnings, but this may shift in 2026 due to the impending introduction of DAC 8.

This directive aims to give tax authorities the information they need to track and assess the tax implications of crypto-generated income by creating a standardised framework for cross-border reporting.

The potential market for Blockpit is vast. Our conversation spans Blockpit's technological core, their client base, and their global expansion efforts. I find the complexities of audit trails and risk management, especially regarding cyber risks, particularly challenging. You'll see just how seriously this Austrian start-up takes these challenges.
