According to a recently posted Wall Street Journal report, the IRS is gearing up to deploy a change to the 2020 tax form that directly affects crypto investors. By now, it is no secret that there is an ongoing plan for increased IRS enforcement on crypto.

For context, 2019 was the first time the IRS asked if an individual had participated in buying, selling, or holding digital assets by putting the question on the Schedule 1 form — not necessarily requiring an answer. But fast-forward just 1 year later, and the IRS has chosen to highlight the question on the…

When cryptocurrency investing first became popular, hardly anyone paid taxes on profits. However, as the market became more regulated, authorities tightened taxation. Let’s dig into cryptocurrency investment and taxation together and discover ways to optimize your crypto taxes.

A unique feature of investing and trading cryptocurrency is that cryptocurrency is a cross between an asset (for example, stocks) and currency (for example, the US dollar). An analysis of the basics of cryptocurrency is very different from an analysis of any other financial asset. Traditional methods of measuring value do not work in the crypto industry, mainly because in many cases…


Cutting your tax bills is always desirable. But it’s even more important to do it the right way to avoid any potential trouble with the IRS. If you are a crypto holder, you know perfectly well that trading cryptocurrencies is a risky business because the value of crypto coins fluctuates wildly. It’s simply impossible to foresee when the next to-the-moon price spike may happen to your favorite coin. The same is almost true for sudden price downfalls that can leave you nearly bankrupt! But it’s good that the IRS is tolerant of risk-taking investors. …


The global economy is plunging into crisis. The COVID-19 first paralyzed production in China, and then stopped hundreds of enterprises in Europe and Asia, followed by the United States. The sudden disruption in the global economy could instigate a global recession in 2020. According to S&P analysts, the annual growth of world GDP will not exceed 1–1.5%, and the second quarter of the year will be the hardest.

In order to prevent poverty and a serious economic crisis, all the countries considered plans to increase budget support for their economies. Support is expressed in an increase in direct budget allocations…


The beginning of the 21st century was marked by the digital revolution. The trends of digitalization in the financial sector are becoming increasingly apparent. It is known that at one time, gold and silver coins were gradually replaced by paper money. Today, digital money has turned into a new challenge to the generally accepted traditions of money circulation and is turning into a purely conditional (virtual) reality and a key element of a virtual economy.

The Importance of Cryptocurrency Legalization and Taxation

Cryptocurrencies are a brand-new phenomenon of the 21st century, which has become a subject of research for both economists and political scientists. The history of…


Nowadays, the issue of cryptocurrency taxation is more relevant than ever. Because we live in the era of information technology, it is important for each of us to understand what is meant by virtual assets and their taxation. Unfortunately, it is impossible to answer this question unequivocally, since each country has its own vision of cryptocurrency taxation. Moreover, the very concept of cryptocurrency differs from country to country, but in some places, it does not exist at all.

In this article, we will consider the most common cryptocurrency tax mistakes and how to avoid them.
