Blockpit collects $ 10 million and wants to develop Cryptotax further

The Fintech Blockpit wants to support investors with tax returns with regard to their crypto assets and mediate between traders, tax advisors, institutions and the tax office.

Fintech, founded in 2017 Blockpit has developed a legally secure and verified tax return solution for the treatment of crypto assets, according to the founders. Cryptotax, as the software is called, is intended to enable investors to use a tax declaration For Krypto-Investments to create. In addition, it should also be possible to prove where and when which transactions took place and whether these can possibly be sold tax-free within the one-year period.

The solution is aimed on the one hand at end customers who, if they only had a maximum of 25 transactions per year, even free receive the tax-correct list for inclusion in the tax return. If there are more transactions, there are costs of 199 euros per year. The tool supports all common crypto trading venues via API and can, for example, transfer data from Coinbase, bitpanda, Bitfinex or Kraken and import transactions via CSV. When it comes to tax treatment, such as income from staking, defi, lending, mining and margin trading, the tool should also support the user, explains founder Florian Wimmer.

Blockpit promises data import in real time

The data is imported in real time from popular crypto exchanges and wallets, standardized and then consolidated in a country-specific report that shows taxable profits and other important data. According to Wimmer, this is particularly elegant at Defis. “Decentralized finance is an exciting new topic where blockchain can be used optimally. I can collect all the data with my public key alone. ”In the future, some of the premium functions will increasingly be reserved for paying customers as part of a freemium model. For example, founder Florian Wimmer is thinking of tax simulation or precalculation.

Cryptotax was most recently localized for Spain and France, but can already be used in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as in the USA. By 2024, the company wants to offer suitable solutions for tax returns for the entire EU area.
