HaHa’s mission is to lower the barrier to entry for crypto by providing cost tracking and analytics to the mainstream user. He bought his first Bitcoin as an undergrad in 2013 and have been investing heavily ever since. After getting his BS in computer science and working for big tech for a few years, he decided to try his hand at entrepreneurship. At around the same time, he got fed up with calculating his crypto gains/loses and average cost basis using excel. He tried some existing solutions, but they proved inaccurate and hard to use. After realizing that this was a problem many others have as well, he decided to put together a team to tackle this issue. Today, they are working tirelessly to help onboard the next few billion users onto crypto.
