Flo­ri­an Wim­mer

Flo­ri­an fin­ished his tech­ni­cal diplo­ma at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences Hagen­berg in Aus­tria and then worked over four years for KPMG in mar­kets and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. The com­bi­na­tion of acquired tech­ni­cal and eco­nom­i­cal know-how, paired with his ear­ly inter­est in cryp­tocur­ren­cies and blockchain, led him to co-found Block­pit in 2017. The RegTech com­pa­ny is devel­op­ing com­pli­ance soft­ware to tack­le the issues of com­plex tax­a­tion and mon­ey laun­der­ing when it comes to blockchain-based assets.
