Defi has exploded in popularity in recent years, with many people turning to these decentralized platforms to manage their finances. But with this new technology comes new challenges, including how to properly report and pay taxes on cryptocurrency transactions. We discuss the current state of Defi and how it's changing the way we think about taxes and accounting in the crypto world.
