That’s very true. I think in some countries, if you don’t switch back to fiat then it’s not a taxable event, unless I understand that wrong. I hope not anyway because I haven’t been paying attention at all and just look at the first and last number and how much I profited hahaha!
Many governments are unsure of what to class cryptocurrencies as, currency or property. The U.S in 2014 introduced cryptocurrency trading rules that mean digital currencies will fall under the umbrella of property. Traders will then be classed as investors and will have to conform to complex reporting requirements. Details of which can be found by heading to the IRS notice 2014-21.
However, it is impossible to give the exact figure of users because of the possibility of some holders owning several wallets and the fact that some bot accounts may also be in existence. Whatever the case, one thing is certain: the number of Bitcoin transactions is on a steady increase.
The government is also asking financial institutions to step up their oversight of the virtual currency sector. Lenders were told to closely monitor crypto trading that exceeds 10 million won ($9,338) a day or 20 million won ($18,676) per week, and also crypto trading accounts owned by corporations or groups and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.

The Bitcoin network was eventually born in January 2009, with the release of the pioneer open source Bitcoin client and then the issuance of the first Bitcoins. The first block Bitcoin ever, referred to as ‘genesis block’ with a reward of 50 Bitcoins, was mined by Satoshi Nakamoto.
SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s government said on Thursday it plans to ban cryptocurrency trading, sending bitcoin prices plummeting and throwing the virtual coin market into turmoil as the nation’s police and tax authorities raided local exchanges on alleged tax evasion.
Robinhood runs a relatively lean operation, which allows the app to forego typical trading fees. Unlike similar stock trading services like E*Trade and Scottrade, Robinhood does not employ sales representatives or national marketing campaigns, meaning the platform incurs less overhead costs. The company profits by collecting interest on the money customers give Robinhood to hold. It also sells Robinhood Gold subscriptions, which give customers the ability to borrow money from the company for trades.

Cryptocurrency is more than just a bunch of digital numbers that people have decided to use as money. The technology that was brought forth by Bitcoin is essentially a decentralized public ledger system, known as the Blockchain. This cryptographic Blockchain technology is what makes Bitcoin, Litecoin, Darkcoin, and other Bitcoin-alternatives a “cryptocurrency.”
What’s important to note is that bitcoin accounts for about 50% of the entire cryptocurrency market, and has the highest volume. It is undoubtedly the most important currency today. You’ll also notice a difference between the original version of bitcoin, Bitcoin Classic (BTC), and a newer version of bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Bitcoin Cash is a spinoff off of the original bitcoin blockchain. I’m not going to get into the technical differences between Bitcoin Classic and Bitcoin Cash, but understand they are separate currencies. So far, Bitcoin Classic seems to be favored by the public over Bitcoin Cash, and has an 8X higher market cap. But when people say “bitcoin” (lowercase) they could be referring to to either currency.
The government’s ban on Bitcoin-related sites and platforms signaled its intent to essentially disallow any cryptocurrency activity within the country, given that the usage of virtual private networks (VPNs) is against the Chinese law.
I feel compelled to spread the word; cryptocurrency is an amazing chance to make a fuck ton of money with a relatively small investment. The problem is, the window is closing.

Bitcoin is great and I’m definitely going to be making use for it in the near future, however, trading it back-n-forth is something I’m not interested in. The whole idea of Bitcoin is to get away from this fraudulent system presently controlled by the banksters. The banksters, and their never-ending bailouts and market manipulation, has destroyed any confidence of an ordinary investor smart enough to stay away from them. The entire global financial financial system, starting with Wall Street/City of London should be reorganized in bankruptcy court and every bankster responsible for architecture of QE TARP ZIRP 0% unlimited bailouts should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and incarcerated.

“The ban did not stop them [Chinese investors] from buying cryptocurrencies. In the last few weeks, we have seen a lot of mainland customers opening up accounts at TideBit. They still want to play the game. I see a growing need in that they will come to Hong Kong or Singapore to buy cryptocurrency.”
