-The NODE40 Team

In 2021, over 40M taxpayers will report owning or trading cryptocurrencies

Currently available off-the-shelf solutions are wildly inaccurate and not auditable. With traditional investments, there are typically long-established financial statements made available on demand by your financial institution that make it pretty easy to determine your tax liability. This is unfortunately not the case for crypto investments.

With cryptocurrency, you are on your own, but not because online cryptocurrency exchanges don't care or don't want to provide the necessary financial statement. It is because they do not have the information to do so. 

When they do report activity, cryptocurrency exchanges will almost always report incorrect numbers to the IRS, due to the exchanges not knowing the cost basis of your asset as you move currency from one exchange to another. This is a technical problem, not a legal problem, and NODE40 Balance was built to solve it.

A “QuickBooks” for crypto

After generating significant business revenue from their own crypto advisory business, founders Perry Woodin and Sean Ryan needed a way to determine their own corporate tax liability from their cryptocurrency invoices. After an extensive evaluation of the limited platforms that already existed and a deep dive into IRS property law, Perry and Sean realized that they'd need to build a solution themselves.

NODE40 has removed the complicated barriers to enabling cryptocurrency tax compliance

NODE40 is an intuitive and transparent cryptocurrency tax platform that simplifies the increasing complexity of tracking on-blockchain and off-blockchain transactions—enabling financial professionals to be leaders in blockchain and cryptocurrency accounting and ensure proper compliance management. NODE40 aggregates transactions from multiple sources, assigns cost basis, simplifies tax filing preparations, and more with unprecedented speed, transparency, and accuracy.

NODE40 offers cost basis tracking for the cryptocurrency industry. It is an essential software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for accountants and auditors—going beyond traditional audit and tax services to simplify blockchain compliance.

NODE40 is a freemium subscription model, with paid subscriptions starting at $75 with seasonal promotional offers. Additional features are included with tiered plans leading up to a la carte pricing for customers or organizations with sophisticated or portfolios.

NODE40 analyzes the raw cryptocurrency transactions so that customers don’t have worry about the complexity.

The raw transaction data is processed through NODE40’s proprietary algorithms and the customer is presented with a familiar ledger similar to a bank statement.

The processed transaction data can then be used to generates tax forms that customers can file directly with the IRS.

The data processed by NODE40 goes well beyond tax compliance. Our unique ability to track the actual transaction data provides insights into overall portfolio health, reports that support business accounting, and other compliance needs.

NODE40 brings order to what sometimes appears to be chaos, at a competitive price point.

Bookkeeping/Tax Platforms

It’s still early, but within the next few years, the established bookkeeping and tax platforms will need to support cryptocurrency transactions. Acquisition of an existing platform makes the most sense.

Cryptocurrency Exchanges

The top-tier U.S. based exchanges all need to provide tax compliance support for their users. Due to the technical nature of cryptocurrency, the only way to provide that support is through a third-party platform like NODE40. A strategic acquisition by an exchange would provide a value-add and build customer loyalty. In addition, an acquiring exchange would gain insight into how their customers interact on competing exchange platforms. NODE40 is currently in talks with 2 of the top 4 crypto exchanges.

Audit Firms

Firms that specialize in accounting and audit require tools to assign and track cost basis.


Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued News Release 2020-98 granting federally chartered banks authority to provide cryptocurrency custody services for customers.

The founders have contributed around $1.1 million in capital since starting the company. The Issuer anticipates that the total cost needed for continued or expanded operations will be approximately $750,000. NODE40 is seeking to crowdfund an amount between the minimum of $200,000 and maximum of $750,000 through the Offering. The minimum of $200,000 will be for ongoing operations. If NODE40 is able to complete a successful Offering, the members of the Issuer have committed to provide or arrange for sufficient financing for the Issuer to cover the remaining balance of the cost to achieve company objectives.
