“Compliance related to crypto trades and investments can be tricky, error-prone and time-consuming. Binocs is mitigating these pain points for retail users and institutions to have a seamless crypto experience. Moreover, the lack of information around crypto tax regulations is a hurdle to investing in the asset class.”

Crypto tax reporting app Binocs has raised $4 million in a funding round led by BEENEXT and Arkam with participation from Accel, Saison Capital, Premji Invest, Blume and Better Capital.

The raised funds will help Binocs pursue its plan of catering to institutional crypto investors and entering geographies like the US, UK, Australia, etc.

The firm sees value in its crypto tax reporting app because now more than 300 million people around the world have crypto assets in their investment portfolio, and that number is expected to double by 2025. Binocs will be there to help crypto holders stay on top of their regulatory responsibilities.

Compliance related to crypto can be tricky

Tonmoy Shingal, Co-Founder and CEO at Binocs, commented: “Compliance related to crypto trades and investments can be tricky, error-prone and time-consuming.
