Potential Tax Considerations for Cryptocurrency

There are some interesting tax options when it comes to various forms of cryptocurrency.  For example, while you hold a cryptocurrency, it is treated like a stock.  Regardless of gain or loss you may enjoy while owning the cryptocurrency, there are no taxes due.  However, when you liquidate an investment into cash, the gain or loss is subject to taxation.  This is true for cryptocurrency as well.  You will need to know your initial investment and the ending value which you would include in your annual tax reporting.

The Rise of Digital Currency

Surviving the Next Inflation Event

Surviving Inflation CryptocurrencyAs we close out 2021, we are feeling the impact of inflation with dire warnings that things inflation is going to drastically cut the "Buying Power" of everyone.  If you are wealthy, you can ride out the storm, but the average family and most businesses are in for some rough times.

The Story of Barter Town

Imagine a frontier town where the people of this modest community make their living by hunting, farming, raising livestock, chopping wood, and plain hard work.  When in need of help or some commodity, they shared what they have or trade with another person.  While the commodity was small, one-to-one barter was fairly simple, and there was the occasional bazaar where there was opportunity to conduct business more easily.

Barter is Community instead of Politics

What is Crypto Barter?

Crypto Barter with CryptoCurrencyCrypto barter is yet another road to explore in the new world of Cryptocurrency.  Cryptocurrency can digitally accomplish everything that cash can do, but is capable of doing it more efficiently and greater speed.  For example banks have sped up their process with computer and Internet-aided services, but cryptocurrency has no tellers, no need for ATMs, or cash back during a purchase.

Regardless of the banking elite, cryptocurrency is here to stay and cash mongers fear that there operations will do the way of 8 track tape players and CDs as people now eagerly learn to buy music, art, and even stock with NFTs and cryptocurrency.
