About Us

Our Story

Co-founded in 2020 by Sharon Yip, CPA, and Phil Gaudiano, CPA, Chainwise CPA, a trade name of Polygon Advisory Group, was born from the shared passion of two seasoned tax practitioners with extensive backgrounds in serving crypto clients. Both licensed CPAs in Virginia, Sharon and Phil first collaborated in 2016 within the corporate tax department of a Fortune 500 company. After leaving the corporation, they each established their own successful tax practices and began an informal partnership in 2018. This collaboration eventually led to the formation of Chainwise CPA, driven by their shared vision and synergy.

Recognizing the revolutionary impact of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, Chainwise CPA specializes in providing tailored accounting and tax services for individuals and businesses in the crypto ecosystem. Our commitment to excellence, integrity, and innovation quickly earned the trust of a diverse clientele. In alignment with this commitment, we rebranded from Polygon Advisory Group to Chainwise CPA to enhance brand recognition and reflect our expertise in crypto taxation. As we launch our new branding, we are excited to announce a new initiative that positions us as a leading crypto tax service provider for CPA firms across the United States. This service allows firms lacking internal capabilities to effectively manage crypto tax cases by partnering with us, ensuring their clients receive the highest standard of crypto tax services.
