In April , economist John Quiggin stated, "bitcoins will attain their true value of zero sooner or later, but it is impossible to say when". In December , finance professor Mark T. The "death" of bitcoin has been proclaimed numerous times. Forbes magazine declared bitcoin "dead" in June ,  followed by Gizmodo Australia in August Peter Greenhill, Director of E-Business Development for the Isle of Man, commenting on the obituaries paraphrased Mark Twain saying "reports of bitcoin's death have been greatly exaggerated".
Some economists have responded positively to bitcoin while others have expressed skepticism. Velde, Senior Economist at the Chicago Fed , described it as "an elegant solution to the problem of creating a digital currency". Louis , stated that bitcoin is a threat to the establishment, which he argues is a good thing for the Federal Reserve System and other central banks , because it prompts these institutions to operate sound policies. Free software movement activist Richard Stallman has criticized the lack of anonymity and called for reformed development.
Marcus calls bitcoin a "great place to put assets" but claims it will not be a currency until price volatility is reduced. In November , three US government officials testified at senate hearings that "Bitcoin has legitimate uses". According to the Washington Post , "Most of the other witnesses echoed those sentiments.
Most bitcoin transactions take place on a cryptocurrency exchange , rather than being used in transactions with merchants. Prices are not usually quoted in units of bitcoin and many trades involve one, or sometimes two, conversions into conventional currencies.
In and bitcoin's acceptance among major online retailers included only three of the top U. Bitcoin is "not actually usable" for retail transactions because of high costs and the inability to process chargebacks , according to Nicholas Weaver, a researcher quoted by Bloomberg. High price volatility and transaction fees make paying for small retail purchases with bitcoin impractical, according to economist Kim Grauer.
Bitcoin started to be accepted also for real estate payments in late The first recorded sale of a house in exchange for bitcoin happened in September , when Texas based Kuper Sotheby's International Realty brokered the deal using bitpay. Two months later, a first recorded sale of apartment in the world and first real estate property in Europe was sold for bitcoin in November in the Czech republic. The Czech real estate agency HOME Hunters brokered a deal of a 3-room apartment for a Russian buyer without using a payment service providers at all.
Some U. Merchants accepting bitcoin, such as Dish Network, use the services of bitcoin payment service providers such as BitPay or Coinbase.

Other types of cryptocurrencies are Ethereum, which is faster than Bitcoin; Cardano, which is considered to be technologically superior; and Litecoin, which has a newer algorithm. To say that the tax treatment of cryptocurrencies is uncertain would be an understatement.
The IRS has released some guidance on the reporting and tax rules for the sale, purchase, and trade of cryptocurrency. These tend to involve the taxation of some very technical aspects of cryptocurrency such as staking and forking, topics beyond the scope of this article, as well as gift and estate taxation of digital assets including cryptocurrencies.
Currently, transactions in cryptocurrency are not subject to the wash sale rules but there have been proposals in Congress to change that. Our digital currency and blockchain practice group — among the industry leaders — is on the cutting edge of developments in this area, tax and otherwise. Your Friedman LLP advisor is well positioned to keep you up to date. Contact us now with any questions.

Also, many cryptocurrencies are experimental open-source projects and there is disagreement about how they should evolve among developers, miners, and early investors who have large holdings, and therefore a lot of influence. Cryptocurrencies have been called everything from the future of currency to outright scams and Ponzi schemes. Cryptocurrencies, also often referred to as coins, are digital currencies that are secured through cryptography, the enciphering and deciphering of messages in secret code or cipher.
Unlike traditional currencies, they are not controlled by any central government or authority. In the case of some of them Bitcoin, Monero, and Litecoin for example , the supply of new coins is controlled by a process called mining, a computationally intensive process where computers mining nodes compete against each other to secure the network by solving mathematical equations, collecting bitcoins as a reward if they are the first to create a new valid block, which is then broadcasted to the rest of the network and added to the blockchain.
Other coins are pre-mined, where the mining occurs before the public launch of the coin. Pre-mined coins are sometimes viewed in a negative light as they are often heavily promoted to increase demand and drive up the price, allowing developers to cash out. Since many of them have been created as open-source software, they continue to evolve as developers work to implement solutions to address problems that arise. Some of the common problems include scalability and security issues.
From a market cap perspective, Bitcoin is far and away the largest. One of the big innovations of Bitcoin was creating a system that did not rely on trusted third parties to process electronic payments; instead it relied on the consensus of the nodes on the network. It also created a currency where the supply could not be altered by any central bank or government. That might not seem like as big of a deal in a country like the U. Beyond bitcoin, according to data on coinmarketcap. The features and purpose of different coins vary.
Several were created by developers looking to solve shortcomings of certain coins or provide additional features not present in others. The ledger can be viewed by anyone and the flow of funds can be traced to and from different Bitcoin addresses, although there is no private information linking you to your Bitcoin address.
Other coins have been developed to provide full anonymity. Even though some of them have very high prices, they are divisible into very small fractions. Some companies have created ATMs where you can use U. There are also companies that have created debit cards where you can convert bitcoin into dollars and use just like you would any other debit card.
Other cryptocurrencies have more specific uses and are used to pay for services on a certain network. For example, Ether is the digital currency used for operating smart contracts on the Ethereum network. One way is to research what kind of equipment miners are using. There are also different companies that accept bitcoin as payments. Square SQ also recently announced it would allow a small number of users to buy and sell bitcoin on Square Cash.
There are several U. It is a highly speculative investment and, historically, the product has traded at a high premium to its net asset value. If you are thinking about investing in this product, there are other unique risks to consider. For traders with a high risk tolerance, both the Cboe and CME recently rolled out bitcoin futures. While it might not be possible for governments to regulate cryptocurrencies directly, they can regulate exchanges and third-party wallet providers, making it more difficult to use them.
This could drastically alter the dynamics of supply and demand and limit their potential use. Cryptocurrencies can be extremely volatile and cryptocurrency-related securities can experience similar price swings.

On 9 June , El Salvador announced that it will adopt Bitcoin as legal tender, the first country to do so. At present, India neither prohibits nor allows investment in the cryptocurrency market. In , the Supreme Court of India had specifically lifted the ban on cryptocurrency, which was imposed by the Reserve Bank of India. But it is being contemplated that the Indian Parliament will soon pass a specific law to either ban or regulate the cryptocurrency market in India.
The legal status of cryptocurrencies varies substantially from country to country and is still undefined or changing in many of them. At least one study has shown that broad generalizations about the use of bitcoin in illicit finance are significantly overstated and that blockchain analysis is an effective crime fighting and intelligence gathering tool. Various government agencies, departments, and courts have classified bitcoin differently. China Central Bank banned the handling of bitcoins by financial institutions in China in early In Russia, though owning cryptocurrency is legal, its residents are only allowed to purchase goods from other residents using Russian ruble while nonresidents are allowed to use foreign currency.
The Japanese platform Line and the Russian platform Yandex have similar prohibitions. Bitcoin is therefore subject to capital gains tax. As the popularity of and demand for online currencies has increased since the inception of bitcoin in ,  so have concerns that such an unregulated person to person global economy that cryptocurrencies offer may become a threat to society.
Concerns abound that altcoins may become tools for anonymous web criminals. Cryptocurrency networks display a lack of regulation that has been criticized as enabling criminals who seek to evade taxes and launder money. Money laundering issues are also present in regular bank transfers , however with bank-to-bank wire transfers for instance, the account holder must at least provide a proven identity. Transactions that occur through the use and exchange of these altcoins are independent from formal banking systems, and therefore can make tax evasion simpler for individuals.
Since charting taxable income is based upon what a recipient reports to the revenue service, it becomes extremely difficult to account for transactions made using existing cryptocurrencies, a mode of exchange that is complex and difficult to track.
Systems of anonymity that most cryptocurrencies offer can also serve as a simpler means to launder money. Rather than laundering money through an intricate net of financial actors and offshore bank accounts, laundering money through altcoins can be achieved through anonymous transactions. Cryptocurrency makes legal enforcement against extremist groups more complicated, which consequently strengthens them.
In February , the world's largest bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox , declared bankruptcy. Likely due to theft, the company claimed that it had lost nearly , bitcoins belonging to their clients. Gox blamed hackers, who had exploited the transaction malleability problems in the network.

In May , Bitcoin Gold had its transactions hijacked and abused by unknown hackers.
On September 13 , Homero Josh Garza was sentenced to 21 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release. The U. The SEC's complaint stated that Garza, through his companies, had fraudulently sold "investment contracts representing shares in the profits they claimed would be generated" from mining. A EU report found that users had lost crypto-assets worth hundreds of millions of US dollars in security breaches at exchanges and storage providers.
Between and , reported breaches ranged from four to twelve a year. In , more than a billion dollars worth of crypto assets was reported stolen. Stolen assets "typically find their way to illegal markets and are used to fund further criminal activity". According to a report produced by the United States Attorney General 's Cyber-Digital Task Force, the following three categories make up the majority of illicit cryptocurrency uses: " 1 financial transactions associated with the commission of crimes; 2 money laundering and the shielding of legitimate activity from tax , reporting, or other legal requirements; or 3 crimes, such as theft, directly implicating the cryptocurrency marketplace itself.
According to the UK national risk assessment—a comprehensive assessment of money laundering and terrorist financing risk in the UK—the risk of using cryptoassets such as Bitcoin for money laundering and terrorism financing is assessed as "medium" from "low" in the previous report. According to Bloomberg and the New York Times, Federation Tower, a two skyscraper complex in the heart of Moscow City, is home to many cryptocurrency businesses under suspicion of facilitated extensive money laundering, including accepting illicit cryptocurrency funds obtained through scams, darknet markets, and ransomware.
Properties of cryptocurrencies gave them popularity in applications such as a safe haven in banking crises and means of payment, which also led to the cryptocurrency use in controversial settings in the form of online black markets , such as Silk Road. In the year following the initial shutdown of Silk Road, the number of prominent dark markets increased from four to twelve, while the amount of drug listings increased from 18, to 32, Darknet markets present challenges in regard to legality.
Cryptocurrency used in dark markets are not clearly or legally classified in almost all parts of the world. In the U. Various studies have found that crypto-trading is rife with wash trading. Wash trading is a process, illegal in some jurisdictions, involving buyers and sellers being the same person or group, and may be used to manipulate the price of a cryptocurrency or inflate volume artificially.
Exchanges with higher volumes can demand higher premiums from token issuers. In , cryptocurrencies were already discussed as a tool to evade economic sanctions for example against Russia and Iran , but also Venezuela.
In April of that year, Russian and Iranian economic representatives met to discuss how to bypass the global SWIFT system through decentralized blockchain technology. In , cryptocurrencies have again attracted attention, when Western nations imposed severe economic sanctions on Russia in the aftermath of its invasion of the Ukraine in February.
However, American sources warned in March that some crypto-transactions could potentially be used to evade economic sanctions against Russia and Belarus. The Bank for International Settlements summarized several criticisms of cryptocurrencies in Chapter V of their annual report. The criticisms include the lack of stability in their price, the high energy consumption, high and variable transactions costs, the poor security and fraud at cryptocurrency exchanges, vulnerability to debasement from forking , and the influence of miners.
Cryptocurrencies have been compared to Ponzi schemes , pyramid schemes  and economic bubbles ,  such as housing market bubbles. Regulators in several countries have warned against cryptocurrency and some have taken measures to dissuade users. Many banks do not offer virtual currency services themselves and can refuse to do business with virtual currency companies. One of the features cryptocurrency lacks in comparison to credit cards, for example, is consumer protection against fraud, such as chargebacks.
In October , a paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that Bitcoin suffers from systemic risk as the top 10, addresses control about one-third of all Bitcoin in circulation. A paper by John Griffin, a finance professor at the University of Texas , and Amin Shams, a graduate student found that in the price of Bitcoin had been substantially inflated using another cryptocurrency, Tether. As the first big Wall Street bank to embrace cryptocurrencies, Morgan Stanley announced on 17 March that they will be offering access to Bitcoin funds for their wealthy clients through three funds which enable Bitcoin ownership for investors with an aggressive risk tolerance.
On 20 April ,  Venmo added support to its platform to enable customers to buy, hold and sell cryptocurrencies. In October , financial services company Mastercard announced it is working with digital asset manager Bakkt on a platform that would allow any bank or merchant on the Mastercard network to offer cryptocurrency services. Mining for proof-of-work cryptocurrencies requires enormous amounts of electricity and consequently comes with a large carbon footprint.
Critics have also identified a large electronic waste problem in disposing of mining rigs. Bitcoin is the least energy-efficient cryptocurrency, using A few papers concluded that variable renewable energy power stations could invest in Bitcoin mining to reduce curtailment , hedge electricity price risk , stabilize the grid, increase the profitability of renewable energy power stations and therefore accelerate transition to sustainable energy.
There are also purely technical elements to consider. For example, technological advancement in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin result in high up-front costs to miners in the form of specialized hardware and software.
Additionally, cryptocurrency private keys can be permanently lost from local storage due to malware, data loss or the destruction of the physical media. This precludes the cryptocurrency from being spent, resulting in its effective removal from the markets. It covers studies of cryptocurrencies and related technologies, and is published by the University of Pittsburgh. The journal encourages authors to digitally sign a file hash of submitted papers, which will then be timestamped into the bitcoin blockchain.
Authors are also asked to include a personal bitcoin address in the first page of their papers. The investors Warren Buffett and George Soros have respectively characterized it as a "mirage"  and a "bubble";  while the business executives Jack Ma and J. Fink called bitcoin an "index of money laundering ". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Encrypted medium of digital exchange.

These crypto crime statistics could help us understand better. Given these cryptocurrency statistics and facts, the answer to this question seems clear: cryptocurrency is far from plateauing. It is, in fact, on its way toward continuous growth.
Although cybercrimes, including cryptojacking, fraud, and money laundering threaten to mar its reputation, developments in technology and regulation help keep it afloat. For one, advancements in blockchain technology will continue to make it easier to track cryptocurrency transactions. This will result in a reduced likelihood of cryptocurrencies being used illegally or stolen. Furthermore, tighter regulations, including but not limited to cryptocurrency taxation , may discourage illicit transactions.
Nevertheless, cryptocurrencies and their growth are not stopping anytime soon. As more huge personalities take an interest in them and more businesses accept cryptocurrencies as payment for products and services, more consumers may also adopt them in the near future. As such, it will be wise to watch cryptocurrency and fintech statistics and trends to see which path this virtual currency will eventually take.
