I've always wondered at what level it becomes 'communism'?

It becomes "communism" when China does it.

You don't pay for moving coins to a ledger anyway but not everyone will be 100% bitcoin when it goes above a million. Everyone in the US and on this forum may eventually get hit with the tax when bitcoin goes up combined with hyperinflation. Also, if the US goes to 43.8%, you can bet the EU will follow shortly. What happens when a million is equivalent to a current $100k because of inflation? Could happen in a few years at the current rate.

I think you do: If you move coins from an address to another then I thought it was a taxable event ("work" is being done, like those crazy Jewish sabbath rules). Maybe if it's not in your control, but if that's the case then the argument should be move coins around at will, tax when converted into fiat.

nah moving corn between addys under your control is not taxable. its like when you top your hot wallet up or xfer to/from an exchange. the taxable event occurs when you finally convert btc to fiat or anything else (altcoin, gold, etc), not from the coin itself moving around.


You are right, it is not, but somehow Coinbase used to portray (in their tax docs?) the move from their account to your personal one as a sell.
Not sure if it still holds true.
Yeah, something like 5 or 6 years ago I withdrew some USD from Coinbase and they sent me a 1099K recording the amount as a payment for services -- like Coinbase was paying me for something.  
Of course all such statements get sent to the IRS too.  
Funny thing is, it was money that I had deposited in Coinbase and later withdrew.  So it wasn't capital gains, it wasn't a payment, it wasn't anything.  I never made a single transaction, no buy or sell, nothing.  It was me moving my own money around.  Sending out a 1099K for shit like that is insane.  It's indefensible.
Even if I had sold some coins, and had capital gains, that has to be calculated from my exchange transaction records.  You can't go by bank transfers.  And you don't record capital gains on a 1099K anyway.  The whole thing is beyond idiotic.

Fortunately, the IRS apparently had enough sense to know that a 1099K from a bitcoin exchange made no sense and ignored it.
And from what I understand, Coinbase has stopped sending out 1099K's.

'Damn huge': Germany opens op to institutional crypto funds.

Quote
In Germany, new legislation enabling managers of the most popular institutional investment funds—the so-called Spezialfonds—to allocate 20% of them to crypto-assets is set to come into force on July 1.

The measure has been hailed as a big boost to Germany’s position as a financial investment hub, and experts believe it will nurture the crypto industry as a whole by further legitimizing the asset class.

It's time for MSM to start ragging on those bastards who leave their electrical appliances plugged in needlessly; wasting energy that could be used for moar bitcoin mining!  Of course that's not as sensational so I wont hold my breath.

hooray! more green devices. great. they may have their place in some applications. but i absolutely hate devices that power themselves down after a period of inactivity.

like, i prefer a media playing device (for example) to stay on "pause" for 6 hours (or 6 days), ready to play at my slightest whim, instead of having to boot up and find (probably manually) my spot when i cued it because it decided to power down.

soon all light bulbs will power themselves down. unless you prove youre still in the room there via flicking the switch every five minutes. i imaging those wifi controlled led lights can probably already do that.

Motion of no confidence against Mark Pinocchio Rutte and his cronies of the temporary Dutch cabinet.
Of course he survived a motion of no confidence himself just a few weeks ago, and the cabinet fell back in January before the already planned elections.
A new cabinet hasn't been formed yet.

I didn't know it was even possible a temporary cabinet could get a motion of no confidence.

Exactly how many lives does Mark Rutte and his cronies have you have to wonder?
It is definitely more than an average feline animal I reckon.

Does anything relating to citizens actually ever get discussed in the Dutch government?

They're making Italian politics look stable.

That is huge, for sure.  Grin
But will end in tight regulation for the little citizen who must be protected.  Embarrassed

Well it's interesting. I only really follow politics of the Netherlands, UK and the USA.

- Democrats in the USA are systematically trying to silence opposition and favour welfare over working (and if you disagree or want strong borders you are simply a racist), to become some type of Chinese communism as has been pointed out.
- The UK political opposition parties are more concerned over a flat decoration than anything related to citizens with regards to easing lockdown dates or worried about the economy. Any distraction is used to attack the sitting government rather than important issues.
- The Dutch politicians have given up caring about citizens completely or even notices they still exist it seems.

In all 3 cases I would argue we are obviously paying far too much tax for any of this nonsense / theatre to continue, nor is it necessary to continue for the average citizen.

They could literally shrink these governments to about 10% and the average citizen would only be better off I think.

thats about how i remember it too. iirc it was the year they 1st sent out 1099ks, the same year (i think) they 1st gave up the account info to the IRS for anyone who had transacted over some amount (10k?). as taxes are based on the actual trade history my accountant said dont worry about it so i didnt.

they still do 1099ks i got one for 2020. gemini sends 1099ks too.

Y'know, one alternative to taxation is for the government to just print the money it needs. We're basically there anyway and it avoids all that messy taxation business. This only works at the federal level obviously  'though it would be interesting if it extended to the state level too.'

 A bit of competition between currencies and the ability for people to express confidence in the various levels of government with exchange rates would probably be quite revealing.


You started really strong as I  love the idea of the fed government saying no federal taxes. We will simply print the money.  This will be a 5 year plan to get us over the covid.

I Would love to see the world's reaction to that bold move.

Getting pretty tired of this Bitcoin going essentially sideways for weeks on end while all the other shitcoins go up for no apparent reason. I mean shit look at all the large investors and institutions rushing out there to buy binance coin, what a stampede. /sarc

Waiting is the hardest part.
