What's Happening At Dash? | Continually Updated News & Announcements Thread

Welcome to dashpay!
If you are new to Dash, we encourage you to check out our wiki, where the Dash project is explained from the ground up with many links to valuable information resources. Also check out the menu bar on top and the sidebar to the right. We have very active Discord and Telegram channels where the community is happy to answer any and all newcomer questions.

Purpose of this post

This post is directed towards community members who wish to rapidly access information on current developments surrounding the Dash cryptocurrency.
Lately we've noticed how the pace of events picked up significantly within the Dash project due to many years of hard work coming together and pieces falling into place ("Evolution" is finally here. It's called Dash Platform). For the purpose of keeping these many pieces of information together, however, singular Reddit submissions are insufficient. Thus we decided to maintain a pinned thread collecting blog posts, interviews, articles, podcasts, videos & announcements. Check back regularly, as this thread will always feature the latest news around Dash, while also serving as a mid-term archive for important announcements and developments.
Journalists looking for news and contact opportunities wrt Dash, please bookmark:

Why I'm buying again at This price.

Thank you IOTA sellers.
Have been buying crypto for 2 years, and right now for me is a wonderful time to load up on IOTA. Yes, it may drop some more sats but I'm not bothered. When the alt coin markets turn, I believe I will see a greater return over the next 2-3 years with IOTA than BTC and most other cryptos.
Why?
Qubic
Coordicide
Reusable address
Jaguar (subsidiary of Indian automotive company Tata Motors)
Possible VW & Ford Germany integrations to be created or announced (if already created by VW)
IBCS Group (Track and Trace Supply Chain Solutions)
Taipei / Austin smart cities
European smart city consortium
Official banking and electricity projects in Norway
Crypto Storage AG
Cybercrypt
EVRYTHNG
Nova
http://iotaarchive.com/listing.html
...and on and on building incredible technology, exciting partnerships and a massive ecosystem in the making.
Edit: and Bosch of course - exploring uses cases with their XDK sensor
https://www.bosch-connectivity.com/newsroom/blog/xdk2mam/

Let's say the Jaguar implementation tests go well and Tata gradually gets more involved. Just look at Tata Group's global coverage industrywide:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tata_Group
Auto, manufacturing, chemicals, coffee, insurance, hotels, telecommunications, commerce, energy, air conditioning and cooling technology... . Think about the possibilities via this one conglomerate alone.

Also,
No Bitcoin Cash little brother (or SV) messing around with the family brand. Bitcoin may become a major digital store of value but there will likely be continuous shenanigans from the major players and mining companies who control the majority of the Bitcoin network.
With time and now growing media exposure again in the U.S., IOTA will become completely free from that drama.

EDIT: Also, one main reason I'm buying IOTA right now at 0.00004547 BTC is because a huge amount of people are panicking and selling, have lost faith. It is the same for most alts. People are selling for BTC in panic. Why didn't they sell 3 months ago if they wanted BTC? This is exactly what the market whales want holders to do, and they'll scoop up alts shortly with their BTC. Don't be a Sheep! Hold or buy at this price.

All the best to IOTA Foundation, partners and investors.
Special thanks to Sergei Popov, David Sønstebø, Sergey Ivancheglo, and Dominik Schiener for this opportunity and incredible work.
Be Bold, Positive and Patient. Go IOTA.

Not financial advice for anyone, as I am just a humble speculator. Just my thoughts trying to bring some positivity to this IOTA board, and letting people know that some see real value to be had in the current market at this BTC ratio.

ChainLink - Rank 97 with no competitors. Undervalued Gem?

What Does ChainLink Do?
In a nutshell, ChainLink aims to solve the connectivity problem, a key limiting factor for smart contract usability, and whilst it's an ERC-20 token it will not be limited to just the Ethereum blockchain.
What makes $LINK so special? Well, it's the first decentralized oracle network; allowing anyone to securely provide smart contracts with access to key external data, off-chain payments and any other API capabilities. Anyone who has a data feed, useful off-chain service such as local payments, or any other API, can now provide them directly to smart contracts in exchange for LINK tokens.
Partnerships
I will keep this brief, as you can see a full list of current and potential partnerships on https://www.reddit.com/LINKTradecomments/7mob78/list_of_chainlinks_partnershipsprojects_using/
But the main ones to look at are
The Pros
ChainLink has steadily been gaining traction ever since its downfall after the 4chan/reddit SIBOS hypetrain crash (post September). It's remained around the 90-100 rank mark and has yet to really "moon".
The Cons
So what makes ChainLink valuable?
The LINK token is used by smart contract owners to pay chainlink nodes for getting data from them and the more LINKs an oracle node has, the more reputable it is. So oracle node providers are incentivized to hold as much LINKs in their chainlink nodes to appear more reputable to the chainlink network, gaining more usage and profit
(Taken from a comment on https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/7nwis4/why_i_believe_chainlink_link_is_the_most/)
Most importantly, LINK can (and will be) used for data request penalty payments to ensure that node operators provide the requested data. Penalty payments are LINK tokens that are required to be held in escrow by the smart contract. They are paid to the smart contract creator in the event any of the node operators do not meet the required data requests as stated in the smart contract. This provides an incentive for smart contract creators to trust node operators, knowing that they have a form of financial insurance (the penalty payment) in the event a node (or nodes) submit bad data.
For information that will trigger high value smart contracts, smart contract owners will want to require a proportionate amount of link to be held in escrow as penalty payments by the node operators. When link is tied up for penalty payments, it is released over the life of the contract. For example, let’s say party A wants an API snapshot sent every day for 30 days. If the penalty payment for the contract is 300 LINK (per node operator), then each node operator will have 10 LINK released to them at the end of each day – receiving the full 300 LINK at the end of the 30 days if they successfully performed the data request the smart contract asked for. Now imagine the smart contract creator wanted 10 node operators. That means 3000 LINK is taken off the market immediately, and 100 of that 3000 is released each day from the smart contract to the individual node operators (10 each per operator, assuming they provided the requested data). A cycle will be created where more and more smart contracts will make requests and node operators will be limited only by the availability of their LINK tokens to be used for penalty payments.
Add it all together and you have a singular payment method for a desired network (the most secure external data oracle), lots of supply constantly locked up to have enough link for signaling purposes (the reputation boost for a node operator), financial insurance for smart contract creators (penalty payments) for increasingly valuable triggering data in a wide variety of smart contracts, and a network poised for growth as more adapters are built and more API’s become available so that dapps can thrive on any blockchain network. Yes LINk is an ERC20 token, but it is blockchain agnostic and the adapter network can continue to grow.
LINK can also be staked!
LINK staking is another big thing that will do wonders for Chainlink's valuation. Turns out Chainlink oracles can be made into pools, similar to mining pools on bitcoin and ethereum where multiple people come and put their LINKs together to run a more secure oracle node and distribute the profits fairly between each other. This will be huge as it will effectively allow you to stake your LINK tokens and earn more of them passively without doing anything. One such pool in development is LinkPool (http://www.linkpool.io/).
Where do i buy and store LINK?
You can currently buy LINK at the following exchanges;
As an ERC-20 token, you can store LINK on your ledger or MEW wallets.
Here is a well written guide on how to purchase LINK https://www.reddit.com/LINKTradecomments/7gglfv/how_to_buy_link_chainlink_token/

IOTA and Tangle discussion/info, scam or not?

In the past weeks I heard a lot pros and cons about IOTA, many of them I believe were not true (I'll explain better). I would like to start a serious discussion about IOTA and help people to get into it. Before that I'll contribute with what I know, most things that I will say will have a source link providing some base content.
 
The pros and cons that I heard a lot is listed below, I'll discuss the items marked with *.
Pros
Cons
 

Scalability

Many users claim that the network infinitely scales, that with more transactions on the network the faster it gets. This is not entirely true, that's why we are seeing the network getting congested (pending transactions) at the moment (12/2017).
The network is composed by full-nodes (stores all transactions), each full-node is capable of sending transactions direct to the tangle. An arbitrary user can set a light-node (do not store all transactions, therefore a reduced size), but as it does not stores all transactions and can't decide if there are conflicting transactions (and other stuff) it needs to connect to a full-node (bitifinex node for example) and then request for the full-node to send a transaction to the tangle. The full-node acts like a bridge for a light-node user, the quantity of transactions at the same time that a full-node can push to the tangle is limited by its brandwidth.
What happens at the moment is that there are few full-nodes, but more important than that is: the majority of users are connected to the same full-node basically. The full-node which is being used can't handle all the requested transactions by the light-nodes because of its brandwidth. If you are a light-node user and is experiencing slow transactions you need to manually select other node to get a better performance. Also, you need to verify that the minimum weight magnitude (difficulty of the Hashcash Proof of Work) is set to 14 at least.
The network seems to be fine and it scales, but the steps an user has to make/know are not friendly-user at all. It's necessary to understand that the technology envolved is relative new and still in early development. Do not buy iota if you haven't read about the technology, there is a high chance of you losing your tokens because of various reasons and it will be your own fault. You can learn more about how IOTA works here.
There are some upcoming solutions that will bring the user-experience to a new level, The UCL Wallet (expected to be released at this month, will talk about that soon and how it will help the network) and the Nelson CarrIOTA (this week) besides the official implementations to come in december.
 

Centralization

We all know that currently (2017) IOTA depends on the coordinator because the network is still in its infancy and because of that it is considered centralized by the majority of users.
The coordinator are several full-nodes scattered across the world run by the IOTA foundation. It creates periodic Milestones (zero value transactions which reference valid transactions) which are validated by the entire network. The coordinator sets the general direction for the tangle growth. Every node verifies that the coordinator is not breaking consensus rules by creating iotas out of thin air or approving double-spendings, nodes only tells other nodes about transactions that are valid, if the Coordinator starts issuing bad Milestones, nodes will reject them.
The coordinator is optional since summer 2017, you can choose not implement it in your full-node, any talented programmer could replace Coo logic in IRI with Random Walk Monte Carlo logic and go without its milestones right now. A new kind of distributed coordinator is about to come and then, for the last, its completely removal. You can read more about the coordinator here and here.

Mining-Blockchain-based Cryptocurrencies

These are blockchain-based cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin) that has miners to guarantee its security. Satoshi Nakamoto states several times in the Bitcoin whitepaper that "The system is secure as long as honest nodes collectively control more CPU power than any cooperating group of attacker nodes". We can see in Blockchain.info that nowadays half of the total hashpower in Bitcoin is controlled by 3 companies (maybe only 1 in the future?). Users must trust that these companies will behave honestly and will not use its 50%> hashpower to attack the network eventually. With all that said it's reasonable to consider the IOTA network more decentralized (even with the coordinator) than any mining-blockchain-based cryptocurrency
You can see a comparison between DAG cryptocurrencies here
 

IOTA partnerships

Some partnerships of IOTA foundation with big companies were well known even when they were not officialy published. Some few examples of confirmed partnerships are listed below, others cofirmed partnerships can be seem in the link Partnerships with big companies at the pros section.
So what's up with all alarming in social media about IOTA Foundation faking partnerships with big companies like Microsoft and Cisco?
At Nov. 28th IOTA Foundation announced the Data Marketplace with 30+ companies participating. Basically it's a place for any entity sell data (huge applications, therefore many companies interested), at time of writing (11/12/2017) there is no API for common users, only companies in touch with IOTA Foundation can test it.
A quote from Omkar Naik (Microsoft worker) depicted on the Data Marketplace blog post gave an idea that Microsoft was in a direct partnership with IOTA. Several news websites started writing headlines "Microsoft and IOTA launches" (The same news site claimed latter that IOTA lied about partnership with Microsoft) when instead Microsoft was just one of the many participants of the Data Marketplace. Even though it's not a direct partnership, IOTA and Microsoft are in close touch as seen in IOTA Microsoft and Bosch meetup december 12th, Microsoft IOTA meetup in Paris 14th and Microsoft Azure adds 5 new Blockchain partners (may 2016). If you join the IOTA Slack channel you'll find out that there are many others big companies in close touch with IOTA like BMW, Tesla and other companies. This means that right now there are devs of IOTA working directly with scientists of these companies to help them integrate IOTA on their developments even though there is no direct partnership published, I'll talk more about the use cases soon.
We are excited to partner with IOTA foundation and proud to be associated with its new data marketplace initiative... - Omkar Naik
 

IOTA's use cases

Every cryptocurrency is capable of being a way to exchange goods, you pay for something using the coin token and receive the product. Some of them are more popular or have faster transactions or anonymity while others offers better scalablity or user-friendness. But none of them (except IOTA) are capable of transactioning information with no costs (fee-less transactions), in an securely form (MAM) and being sure that the network will not be harmed when it gets more adopted (scales). These characteristics open the gates for several real world applications, you probably might have heard of Big Data and how data is so important nowadays.
Data sets grow rapidly - in part because they are increasingly gathered by cheap and numerous information-sensing Internet of things devices such as mobile devices, aerial (remote sensing), software logs, cameras, microphones, radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers and wireless sensor networks.
 
It’s just the beginning of the data period. Data is going to be so important for human life in the future. So we are now just starting. We are a big data company, but compared to tomorrow, we are nothing. - Jack Ma (Alibaba)
There are enormous quantities of wasted data, often over 99% is lost to the void, that could potentially contain extremely valuable information if allowed to flow freely in data streams that create an open and decentralized data lake that is accessible to any compensating party. Some of the biggest corporations of the world are purely digital like Google, Facebook and Amazon. Data/information market will be huge in the future and that's why there so many companies interested in what IOTA can offer.
There are several real world use cases being developed at the moment, many of them if successful will revolutionize the world. You can check below a list of some of them.
Extra
These are just few examples, there are a lot more ongoing and to explore.
 

IOTA Wallet (v2.5.4 below)

For those who have read a lot about IOTA and know how it works the wallet is fine, but that's not the case for most users. Issues an user might face if decide to use the current wallet:
Problems that could be easily avoided with a better understand of the network/wallet or with a better wallet that could handle these issues. As I explained before, some problems during the "congestion" of the network could be simply resolved if stuff were more user-friendly, this causes many users storing their iotas on exchanges which is not safe either.
The upcoming (dec 2017) UCL Wallet will solve most of these problems. It will switch between nodes automatically and auto-reattach transactions for example (besides other things). You can have full a overview of it here and here. Also, the upcoming Nelson CarrIOTA will help on automatic peer discovery for users setup their nodes more easily.
 

IOTA Vulnerability issue

On sept 7th 2017 a team from MIT reported a cryptographic issue on the hash function Curl. You can see the full response of IOTA members below.
Funds were never in danger as such scenarios depicted on the Neha's blogpost were not pratically possible and the arguments used on the blogpost had'nt fundamentals, all the history you can check by yourself on the responses. Later it was discovered that the whole Neha Narula's team were envolved in other concurrent cryptocurrency projects
Currently IOTA uses the relatively hardware intensive NIST standard SHA-3/Keccak for crucial operations for maximal security. Curl is continuously being audited by more cryptographers and security experts. Recenlty IOTA Foundation hired Cybercrypt, the world leading lightweight cryptography and security company from Denmark to take the Curl cryptography to its next maturation phase.
 
It took me a couple of days to gather the informations presented, I wanted it to make easier for people who want to get into it. It might probably have some mistakes so please correct me if I said something wrong. Here are some useful links for the community.
This is my IOTA donation address, in case someone wants to donate I will be very thankful. I truly believe in this project's potential.
I9YGQVMWDYZBLHGKMTLBTAFBIQHGLYGSAGLJEZIV9OKWZSHIYRDSDPQQLTIEQEUSYZWUGGFHGQJLVYKOBWAYPTTGCX
 
This is a donation address, if you want to do the same you might pay attention to some important details:
  • Create a seed for only donation purposes.
  • Generate a address and publish it for everyone.
  • If you spend any iota you must attach a new address to the tangle and refresh your donation address published before to everyone.
  • If someone sends iota to your previous donation address after you have spent from it you will probably lose the funds that were sent to that specific address.
  • You can visualize how addresses work in IOTA here and here.
This happens because IOTA uses Winternitz one-time signature to become quantum resistent. Every time you spend iota from a address, part of the private key of that specific address is revealed. This makes easier for attackers to steal that address balance. Attackers can search if an address has been reused on the tangle explorer and try to brute force the private key since they already know part of it.

Brief guide to calculating your capital gains and losses.

Hey all - full disclosure, I work for Bitcoin.Tax , which is the source of this information. Since Tax Day in Canada is approaching, I wrote up a quick guide to calculating your capital gains from trading/utilizing/selling crypto. We've been in the business of crypto taxation a long time, and we've been supporting Canadian users since 2014.
The full article has information about using Bitcoin.Tax to calculate your capital gains/losses, if anyone is looking for a software to use. Otherwise, feel free to utilize the information below to understand crypto capital gains a bit better. I know there are a lot of knowledgeable people here, so if I've missed the mark on anything, let me know (all info was sourced from official material).
Full Article Link
---
In Canada, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are considered commodities by The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The CRA treats cryptocurrency trades as barter transactions, which makes them subject to the income tax.
The gains and losses from these trades must be reported when filing your taxes, where most individuals would report these figures on their Schedule C. If your cryptocurrency trading is considered a "business", it may be taxed as income. It's always best to confer with a tax professional to determine what your trading constitutes.
Official information about capital gains taxation can be found on the Government of Canada's Website.
The normal deadline for tax reporting in Canada is April 30.

Taxable Events

A taxable event refers to any type of cryptocurrency transaction that results in a capital gain.
Here are the primary ways in which your cryptocurrency could result in a capital gain:
Variations of these events can also result in a taxable event occurring (i.e., trading with coins acquired from a fork/split or buying something with crypto that you received for services rendered).
Buying a cryptocurrency with fiat is not, in itself, a taxable event. A taxable event occurs once the crypto is disposed.

Capital Gains = Proceeds — ACB - Fees
ACB refers to "Adjusted Cost Basis", which is how much your coin cost to acquire, plus any expenses associated with it. Adjusted Cost Basis averages together all of your acquisition costs of a specific coin in order to calculate a cost basis.
For example, if you buy 1 BTC for $3,000, 1 BTC for $5,000, and 1 BTC for $10,000, your adjusted cost basis for your BTC would be $6,000. If there were fees associated with those buys, they would also be added to the cost basis.
Proceeds are determined by the value of the crypto, service, or fiat you received, at the time of the coin's disposition. Fees refers to amounts incurred to sell your coin.
Your capital gain or loss on crypto is determined by taking the proceeds from the disposed (i.e., traded or sold) coin and subtracting the coin's adjusted cost basis.
For example, if you acquired 1 BTC for $5,000, plus paid a fee of $100, the adjusted cost basis of your 1 BTC would be $5,100. If you later sold that 1 BTC for $6,000, you would realize a capital gain of $900 ($6,000 - $5,100).
If you did one or two trades throughout the year, it's not too difficult to determine how much of a capital gain has been realized. However, most people have a lot more than one or two trades, which makes manually calculating your gains extremely difficult.

Mining Crypto

The tax treatment for mining cryptocurrency is established on a case by case basis. If the mining being done constitutes a "business activity", it is taxed as income. If it constitutes a hobby, it is taxed differently. It is best to consult with a tax professional to assess whether your mining constitutes a business activity or a hobby.

Superficial Losses

If you realize a capital loss when trading or selling capital property, you can use it to offset capital gains you have elsewhere to lower your taxes. To deter abuse of this rule, the CRA enforces a superficial loss rule on capital losses. If you have a superficial loss, it cannot be used as a deduction against your taxable income.
A superficial loss occurs when you dispose of a cryptocurrency for a loss and then you (or, even someone affiliated with you, like a spouse or a dependent) buys the same cryptocurrency in the surrounding 61 day period (30 days before AND 30 days after the sale).
For example, let's say you have 2 BTC, and then you sell 1 of those BTC at a loss. If that 1 BTC was purchased 30 days prior to the sale, the loss would be superficial. Or, if after selling the 1 BTC, you bought another BTC within 30 days, the loss would also be considered superficial.

Capital Gain Rates

For individuals, the amount of capital gains tax owed is 50% of your capital gains, based off the Inclusion Rate. If your primary source of income is from trading crypto, your gains may subject to a different rate - it is best to consult with a tax professional if you are unsure.

Foreign Property Reporting

Cryptocurrency likely falls under the CRA reporting requirements for "specified foreign property". Given this, if the cost of the cryptocurrency exceeds $100,000 anytime throughout the year, it needs to be reported on form T1135.
This post is for informational purposes only and not intended as tax or financial advice. Please speak with your own tax professional on how you should treat the taxation of your own cryptocurrencies given your own circumstances.

2017 Taxes Megathread - Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax, and Mining

There's a lot of posts in /BitcoinCA popping up about tax questions and it's tax season so please post all tax related questions and discussions in this thread to clear up the clutter and this way we don't need to repeat ourselves.
I've been able to find the fallowing links on crypto taxes that can offer some guidance. I included some snippets with key take aways click the links to read the full articles for context.

CRA: What you should know about digital currency

Do tax rules apply when digital currency is used?
Yes. Where digital currency is used to pay for goods or services, the rules for barter transactions apply. A barter transaction occurs when any two persons agree to exchange goods or services and carry out that exchange without using legal currency. For example, paying for movies with digital currency is a barter transaction. The value of the movies purchased using digital currency must be included in the seller’s income for tax purposes. The amount to be included would be the value of the movies in Canadian dollars.
More information on the tax implications of barter transactions is available by consulting the Canada Revenue Agency’s Interpretation Bulletin IT-490, Barter Transactions.
Digital currency can also be bought or sold like a commodity. Any resulting gains or losses could be taxable income or capital for the taxpayer. Paragraphs 9 to 32 of Interpretation Bulletin IT-479R, Transactions in Securities, provide information that can help in determining whether transactions are income or capital in nature.

Inuit/TurboTax: How Bitcoins Might Impact Your Income Taxes

Trade and Barter Transactions With Virtual Currencies
Transactions made with bitcoins or other virtual currency are covered by the section of the tax code that governs barter and trade transactions. Under this portion of the tax code, you must declare any income received or expenses made, regardless of whether any actual cash was tied to the transaction.
For example, if you run a daycare and you accept eggs, bitcoins or any other type of trade in exchange for child care, you still are required to report these transactions on your income taxes. Since you can’t declare bitcoins, eggs or other material items on your tax form, you must declare the typical dollar amount that you would have otherwise claimed for those services.

The Globe and Mail: Here's what you need to know about the Canadian tax implications of cryptocurrencies

I "mined" cryptocurrency. What are the tax consequences?
Cryptocurrency miners should report as income the cryptocurrency they earn, and should be able to deduct associated losses, such as those hefty electricity costs.
I was paid in cryptocurrency. What should I do?
If your employer has paid you with cryptocurrency, it's like being paid with money. You will be required to pay income tax on your earnings.
If you are an independent contractor and you have been paid with cryptocurrency, again, from a tax perspective, it's like being paid with money. You need to pay income tax and collect GST/HST, but you can also deduct associated expenses and claim input tax credits.

About filing your tax return (U.S.)

I've noticed that just about every year (and multiple times per year) there are questions here about filing a tax return, what income must be reported, and who needs to file. Here's the tl;dr summary:
 
Q: If I made less than $600 on a Beermoney site and they don't report it, then I don't need to report it either, because they won't find out, right?
A: Even if the business entity is not filing their own 1099-MISC on you, they still keep detailed records on what they paid who, and how. PayPal cash, Amazon (or other) gift cards, and yes even crypto gains are legally subject to capital gains tax. Business entities in the United States, especially those handling transactions, are regularly reviewed by regulators and auditors. If you made less than $600 it is less likely that you will be caught and fined, but if you willfully neglect to report earned income from any source, that is called Income Tax Fraud and carries penalties of six figures, which is probably more than you'll make in Beermoney in a lifetime. I can't force you to report your earnings, but how much of a risk are you willing to take?
Q: My dad/buddy/Internet told me if I make less than $400 I don't have to report it, what about that?
A: If you ONLY made income from Beermoney in 2017, and it was less than $400, you do not have to file. If you made more than $400 in Beermoney OR you received income from other sources (job for wages), you must report ALL of your income including Beermoney, even if you made less than $400 during the year in Beermoney. Source.
Q: So how much do I have to cough up, anyway?
A: Misc. income is taxed at a rate of 15% on top of your your personal tax rate. So if your earned income (including Beermoney) puts you in a 12% tax bracket (which is over 30% of single folks and over 60% of couples according to 2016 numbers) then you'll be paying 27% tax on your Beermoney earnings. If you're getting a refund this will just reduce your refund, but if you owe then you'll need to budget for that. A good way to offset this for next year is to either re-evaluate your W-2 or squirrel away some of those earnings into a high-interest savings account (mine's in Ally getting me 1.25% right now) so that you're making a little back from your tax payment. EDIT: quickclickz has a helpful exception in their comment regarding higher income levels.
 
A good read from TurboTax.com:
Depending on how many different companies or people you receive payments from during the year, you may receive more than one 1099-MISC. Each payer must complete the form if during any year it pays you $600 or more. However, if you earn $500 from 20 different companies, you still must report your income even though you might not receive a single 1099-MISC. Full article
 
A look at this post initially makes it seem as though the IRS doesn't care if they don't get a 1099-MISC about you, but notice the person who answered the question assumes the filer is going to be tallying up their Internet and phone bills and considering that a deductible hobby expenses. But in order to do that, you have to itemize your deductions using Schedule A, and I'm not sure if the amount I would save in tax by doing that is worth the extra time it takes to itemize. You can make that call for yourself.
 
Please consider linking back to this post as new threads and questions inevitably come up in the next couple months by folks who forget to (or prefer not to) use the search feature. I will try to update this post if any new or helpful information comes up.
 
EDIT: ZippyTheChicken brought up a good point. There is a lot of misinformation going around that Beermoney income must always be reported as hobby income. This is not necessarily the case. Go ahead and tally up your Internet and phone bill for the year, and also estimate travel expenses if you did mystery shopping. If you made less than those expenses during the year, you should be safe to declare it as hobby income and expense, resulting in a net gain of zero (you cannot take a net loss on hobbies). If you made more than the total of your Beermoney expenses for the year, the IRS could make a case that you are trying to earn a profit and are therefore legally required to establish yourself as a business and file accordingly.

Long Term Capital Gains on Cryptos Less Than a Year Old

Hello, thank you in advance for the help, I'm a bit lost and confused as to how I should proceed here...
I just finished inputting all my trades and mining income into Bitcoin.tax and I went to the 'Calculate' tab to see what it estimates my tax bill should be. I sold some 0xBTC (which was created in February and I didn't start to acquire until March) and Bitcoin.tax is telling me I have some long term capital gains... How is this possible? Am I missing something obvious or is there an error?
I am in the US where the IRS classifies trades on assets held longer than 1 year a long-term gain/loss: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/capital-gains-and-losses-10-helpful-facts-to-know-0

Cryptocurrency companies use ‘backdoor’ listings to ease into mainstream

Representations of the Ripple, Bitcoin, Etherum and Litecoin virtual currencies are seen on a PC motherboard in this illustration picture, February 13, 2018. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/IllustrationFebruary 22, 2019
By Alun John and Anna Irrera
HONG KONG (Reuters) – Several cryptocurrency exchanges have moved closer to mainstream markets by buying listed companies, looking to raise funds and present themselves as embedded in the traditional financial services world they once spurned.
In the most recent deal, U.S. crypto broker-dealer Voyager Digital on Feb. 11 achieved a “backdoor” listing on Toronto’s Venture Exchange after it bought control of mineral exploration firm UC Resources.
Such purchases, also known as reverse mergers, allow companies to offer shares to the public without the rigors and regulatory scrutiny of a full initial public offering (IPO).
“Many (cryptocurrency) exchanges have put a lot of strategic effort into trying to legitimize their operations and their reputations, and for some there’s an assumption that having some exposure to the traditional public market will help,” said Fei Ding’an, managing partner at Ledger Capital, a digital asset investment firm.
Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) is the only major national regulator so far to have drawn up a definitive framework to govern digital assets and the platforms where they are traded.
In January, OKC Holdings, a company controlled by Star Xu, the founder of crypto-exchange OK Coin, bought 60.5 percent of LEAP Holdings,, a Hong Kong-listed construction firm, for HK$484 million ($61.69 million).
Days later, the parent of Korean crypto exchange Bithumb announced plans for a U.S. listing via the purchase of Blockchain Industries.
Last year, investors that included the co-founders of crypto-exchange software producer ANX International bought a controlling stake in Hong Kong-listed marketing firm Branding China, while Huobi, a Singapore based exchange, bought a 72 percent stake in Hong Kong-listed power electrical company Pantronics Holdings.
Voyager said its listed shares could help fund growth.
“Being a public company enables Voyager to operate with the transparency that the crypto market deserves from its institutions,” Voyager CEO Steve Ehrlich said in an email.
Neither Huobi nor OKCoin has given details of their plans for the purchases.
ANX International remains separate from the renamed BC Group, but since the change in ownership the listed unit has launched new businesses that include a digital asset trading and exchange platform.
A spokesman for BC Group said being publicly traded gave clients “additional confidence in knowing we are a credible company and here for the long game.”
Spokespeople for OKCoin and Huobi declined to comment.
Neither Bithumb nor its parent Blockchain Exchange Alliance responded to requests for comment.
LEGITIMACY
Crypto experts said the deals could help the industry gain greater mainstream acceptance.
The reputation of cryptocurrencies, and particularly exchanges, has been hit hard by fears of price volatility and possible uses for laundering money alongside high-profile hacks and infrastructure failures.
Last year, the New York attorney general’s office warned that several cryptocurrency exchanges were plagued by poor market surveillance and pervasive conflicts of interest, saying some may be operating illegally.
This month, $137 million in cryptocurrencies was frozen in the user accounts of Canadian digital platform Quadriga after the founder, the only person with the password to gain access, died unexpectedly.
The crypto market peaked in late 2017, when trading volumes surged and bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, reached a high just above $20,000. Bitcoin’s price has fallen more 80 percent since then, and trading volumes have slumped.
Some exchanges may also feel pressure from investors seeking a means of realizing their profits.
“With the market turning south and regulators not being happy, this is an opportunity to satisfy investors and founders who are looking for an exit,” said Zennon Kapron, director at financial technology consultancy Kapronasia.
WRESTLING WITH REGULATORS
Public listings of cryptocurrency exchanges also pose a challenge for regulators, who are only beginning to grapple with the issues of overseeing the trading of digital currencies.
Japan’s FSA became the first major jurisdiction to regulate the exchanges in 2016, but has since refined its rules to allow the industry to largely self-regulate.
In the United States, New York state has, so far, issued a handful of so-called BitLicences for companies doing any sort of virtual currency business.

Cryptocurrency companies use ‘backdoor’ listings to ease into mainstream

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Several cryptocurrency exchanges have moved closer to mainstream markets by buying listed companies, looking to raise funds and present themselves as embedded in the traditional financial services world they once spurned.
In the most recent deal, U.S. crypto broker-dealer Voyager Digital on Feb. 11 achieved a “backdoor” listing on Toronto’s Venture Exchange after it bought control of mineral exploration firm UC Resources.
Such purchases, also known as reverse mergers, allow companies to offer shares to the public without the rigors and regulatory scrutiny of a full initial public offering (IPO).
“Many (cryptocurrency) exchanges have put a lot of strategic effort into trying to legitimize their operations and their reputations, and for some there’s an assumption that having some exposure to the traditional public market will help,” said Fei Ding’an, managing partner at Ledger Capital, a digital asset investment firm.
Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) is the only major national regulator so far to have drawn up a definitive framework to govern digital assets and the platforms where they are traded.
In January, OKC Holdings, a company controlled by Star Xu, the founder of crypto-exchange OK Coin, bought 60.5 percent of LEAP Holdings,, a Hong Kong-listed construction firm, for HK$484 million ($61.69 million).
Days later, the parent of Korean crypto exchange Bithumb announced plans for a U.S. listing via the purchase of Blockchain Industries.
Last year, investors that included the co-founders of crypto-exchange software producer ANX International bought a controlling stake in Hong Kong-listed marketing firm Branding China, while Huobi, a Singapore based exchange, bought a 72 percent stake in Hong Kong-listed power electrical company Pantronics Holdings.
Voyager said its listed shares could help fund growth.
“Being a public company enables Voyager to operate with the transparency that the crypto market deserves from its institutions,” Voyager CEO Steve Ehrlich said in an email.
Neither Huobi nor OKCoin has given details of their plans for the purchases.
ANX International remains separate from the renamed BC Group, but since the change in ownership the listed unit has launched new businesses that include a digital asset trading and exchange platform.
A spokesman for BC Group said being publicly traded gave clients “additional confidence in knowing we are a credible company and here for the long game.”
Spokespeople for OKCoin and Huobi declined to comment.
Neither Bithumb nor its parent Blockchain Exchange Alliance responded to requests for comment.
LEGITIMACY
Crypto experts said the deals could help the industry gain greater mainstream acceptance.
The reputation of cryptocurrencies, and particularly exchanges, has been hit hard by fears of price volatility and possible uses for laundering money alongside high-profile hacks and infrastructure failures.
Last year, the New York attorney general’s office warned that several cryptocurrency exchanges were plagued by poor market surveillance and pervasive conflicts of interest, saying some may be operating illegally.
This month, $137 million in cryptocurrencies was frozen in the user accounts of Canadian digital platform Quadriga after the founder, the only person with the password to gain access, died unexpectedly.
The crypto market peaked in late 2017, when trading volumes surged and bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, reached a high just above $20,000. Bitcoin’s price has fallen more 80 percent since then, and trading volumes have slumped.
Some exchanges may also feel pressure from investors seeking a means of realizing their profits.
“With the market turning south and regulators not being happy, this is an opportunity to satisfy investors and founders who are looking for an exit,” said Zennon Kapron, director at financial technology consultancy Kapronasia.
WRESTLING WITH REGULATORS
Public listings of cryptocurrency exchanges also pose a challenge for regulators, who are only beginning to grapple with the issues of overseeing the trading of digital currencies.
Japan’s FSA became the first major jurisdiction to regulate the exchanges in 2016, but has since refined its rules to allow the industry to largely self-regulate.
In the United States, New York state has, so far, issued a handful of so-called BitLicences for companies doing any sort of virtual currency business.
Both Hong Kong’s market watchdog, the Securities and Futures Commission, and the Hong Kong Exchange declined to comment.

[US] Basic tax explanation from a non-CPA

Update: Turbotax says I was partially wrong about cap gain vs sales revenue :( https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tips/tax-payments/tax-tips-for-bitcoin-and-virtual-currency/L1ZOgU00q
https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-virtual-currency-guidance
tl;dr: The value of the sales revenue is based on the value of the BTC (or other coin) on the day you received it. If you HODL, it then gets treated as a gain or loss.
There seems to be a lot of confusion about how this is taxed and so people say fuzzy things like "it's a grey area" and "the IRS doesn't even know". For the most part, especially in terms of NiceHash sellers, this isn't complicated.
When you go to do your taxes there is a Schedule C form that is literally called "Profit or Loss From Business". If you're just a guy doing this out of your garage (or a girl from a dorm, or an agender potatoe doing it from the woods), this is the form you use.
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sc.pdf
So what do all of the lines mean? It's really simple. Anything you make from NiceHash that's converted to cash gets put here: should be valued as of the day you receive it and put here:
Part I Income 1 Gross receipts or sales.
"But hungrycapitalist, where do I put my expenses for the deduction?" Great question! If you move under Part II there is a section for expenses broken down by category. Line 13 is for depreciation and is where you put your equipment purchases (which actually can be a little complicated). Line 25 is where you put your utilities (whatever percentage you attribute to your mining equipment). If you look at the form, you get the idea.
"But hungrycapitalist, what about capital gains?" Capital gains is when you buy something you passively hold. For example, you go to CoinBase and buy $1,000 of BTC, then sit on it. If you sell it within a year it gets taxed at a higher rate than if you sit on it for more than a year. If you're mining and this is your form of payment, you simply sell it for whatever you sell it at and report it as line 1 Gross receipts or sales. Why? Think of it like this, if you build chairs as a business and they don't sell so well (or you think they'll go up in value) and you sell it a year down the road, it's still sales revenue, not a capital gains. Also, if you're reporting it as sales revenue, you won't get double taxed on it as a capital gain.
Is it complicated to understand the difference between a capital gain and business income? I guess, but the key difference is pretty clear if you look at the schedule C form and ask the question "is this pay from a business activity or a passive investment?"
As I said, I'm not a CPA nor am I qualified to give you definitive tax advice, but if you look at the IRS form you file your taxes on it makes it pretty clear.
Source: Run internet business and this is how my CPA explained it to me.
