House Bill Would Offer Tax Exemption for Small Crypto Transactions

For digital currency users in the United States who might want to use their cryptocurrency for real-world commercial transactions, the rules under the existing tax regime are both complex and inexplicable. Those rules can turn even the most minor transactions into reportable capital gains – which is why digital currency users currently need to carefully record their transactions to track any potential tax obligations that may arise. A new bill in the U.S. House of Representatives could help to ease that burden.

Op-Ed: Separating Wealth Creation from the State – Does DNotes Have the Answer?

Did you know that digital currency is already providing a degree of monetary sovereignty for countries whose governments have abandoned their nation currencies – like Greece and other countries in Europe where citizens are forced to use the Euro? There is no denying that Bitcoin can fulfill this function up to a certain point. However, it’s important to consider whether the consensus of direction required for large-scale mass adoption is possible without a more centralized leadership model. After all, where money is concerned, individuals without a common set of interests will always look out for their own interests first and foremost. Strong and united leadership can not only aid in protecting the value of any cryptocurrency; it can also help to unite large groups of individuals and provide them with the common interests and long-term goals needed to help stabilize that currency’s value.

Over the course of the next few months, it struggled to gain traction for the upward price momentum so many observers were anticipating as the new year dawned. My, how quickly things can change.
