Breaking News:U.S. Congress proposes that Crypto transactions below $200 shall be free from taxes!.

Quote
139 G.Gain from disposition of virtual currency

(a)In general
Gross income of an individual shall not include gain, by reason of changes in exchange rates, from the disposition of virtual currency in a personal transaction (as such term is defined in section 988(e)). The preceding sentence shall not apply if the gain which would otherwise be recognized on the transaction exceeds $200.

(b)Virtual currency
For purposes of this section, the term virtual currency means a digital representation of value that is used as a medium of exchange and is not otherwise currency under section 988.

pdf



That would be great if that goes through.  I have made a few small purchases that have been annoying to keep track of (esp. cost basis for coins, I use FIFO accounting).  The larger purchases (gold) I kept careful track of because they were larger transactions.

Tiny purchases with BTC should be tax-free, the man-hours of doing the accounting are maddening.

Zhao in response to Peter Schiff’s negative comments about bitcoin & forgetting his wallet passphrase.




@cz_binance
1. This is probably 0.01 btc someone gave him as a gift.

2. The thread is entertaining due to the hopelessly illogical-ness.

3/5. It is amazing someone so illogical can attract that many followers. I guess there are multiple reasons one can become famous.

@cz_binance
4. Finally understood why he likes gold over bitcoin. Gold doesn’t have a password.

5. Unless, of course, if he uses a vault with a password to store the gold...

This is super huge if it passes.  We will all become spenders as we rotate our hoards to a much higher cost basis.

I’d like to see something similar passed in the UK.

I don’t think it’s fair I’ll have to pay up to 20% capital gains tax on an investment that I mostly bought in 2014-15.

In Germany there is 0% capital gains tax on assets that you have HODLED for over 12 months.

I’ll figure a way around it, I’ve been playing the system in business for years.

Well, we do get a 12 grand or so tax free allowance per year which could be worse and covers some spending. I didn't realise the American rate was zero from the off which is nuts.

Capital gains is not one of those taxes that the average voter pays or gives a shit about so I can well imagine it'll rise at some point. It's a pretty soft target. And it would've been 90 billion per cent had Labour gotten in.

I’m really not happy at the thought of paying 20%, that sucks man. Why should I pay so much money when the majority of my coins were bought for so little.

The government does not deserve to take so much from us.

It is what it is. I priced it in from the off. And it can be much, much worse in other places. Ireland's 33% I think.

If I change my mind I have my eyes on this palace - https://www.rightmove.co.uk/overseas-property/property-88276847.html?currencyCode=GBP  but need to get my skates on before going abroad results in gammons stoning you to death.

even if congress passes it (I doubt it), POTUS would surely veto it (on advise of Sec Treas).

yea, in US it is similar (up to 20%) on longer term cap gains. 10% would have been more decent, but, whatever.
Brits have one up on us with all that offshoring business. No such thing (except weird Puerto Rico situation) for US citizens.
IF you love that future extra 15-20% so much that you want to live in PR at least 183 days/year, then...
I won't.

It’s so fucking cheap.

I refuse to move anywhere sweaty. And though I don't know how sweaty it is there it's certainly close enough to other places filled with people sweating to raise my suspicions to Defcon 1.

I could buy a rotating army of small Filipinos to sit in fridges and then run out and press themselves against me until they warm up, but I think I'd rather stay put and incur a bit more expense.

Where is the world it is pleasantly warm, but not hot at least 8-9 mo/year?
A sea and or a lake is required, preferably english speaking (at least in a large part) populace.
I cannot think of anywhere apart from few small places in The Caribbean, with a threat of hurricanes, etc.
I've been through several hurricanes already, it's a thing to avoid if possible.
Without considering language, I was also thinking about Greece (including Corfu), some Mediterranean islands (Crete, etc.), maybe Canary islands.
Maybe I should learn Spanish or Portuguese, finally.

Suggestions?

Good evening guys,

enjoying some greek wine and observing $8660... You guys with me?!
No! Far away from the greek wines and beaches. Not even close to your moon. Jupiter here! Equivalent of the Greek Zeus! Festivals of viniculture and wine were devoted to Jupiter.

Hawaii. Side of the volcano, pick your elevation and you can pick your climate. Then a few minutes to either the summit and wearing a winter jacket, or to the beach and wearing nearly nothing. Of course there's that little issue of cost of living.

I thought this had been settled years ago.

It's Jaywick of course.

Sun, sea, affordable property, 'community spirit' which is important as you get older and all a short hop from London.
