Be careful with this, remember the Feds took down the mob by proving tax evasion, not actual crimes.

If the US government (with all of the data collected by NSA, etc) is able to prove that at one point you acquired a certain number of coins then it is easy for them to force to you admit to one of the following, either:
1) You sold the coins, in which case you better have reported that past sale to the IRS and paid taxes, or
2) You still control the coins

or

3) They got stolen...

If Bitcoin grows large, exactly how will governments tax the 'windfall'?

I'm guessing they could only enforce anything at the fiat interface (bank account level).

Taxing users for bitcoin to physical goods transactions could only be a written law that users might or might not abide by. The same goes for posting cash around in envelopes.

If Bitcoin becomes massive, I do not think the government can tax as efficient as they do now. The apparatus would shrink drastic due to lack of income. How will they tie millions of people to (by then) zillion Bitcoin addresses? It's a losing proposition, and the government would know and switch to proven tax strategies from way back + property taxes. If too suppressive, a massive black market would exist with Dark Coin/Monero (XMR) type of currencies.

If you think cryptos will be really big, it's time to move to a jurisdiction that does not tax capital gains of individuals.

DId Erik actually renounce his citizenship? I think Roger did...

Medvedev and Li signed over 40 other agreements at the meeting, including outlining plans to add another pipeline from Russia to China. Li is in Moscow for a three-day visit.

well, i guess if Europe doesn't want to use it, China will.

Meh.  We're talking about a 6% slide (not even technically a correction) from the ATH.  I'd hope that isn't enough to cause much heartburn.  Of course, it is the spooky month of October.

you also need to be careful in posting ridiculous amounts of bitcoin attributable to certain individuals.

My hypothetical example above was just that, a hypothetical example to outline how a future argument might be drawn in the public sphere. Not sure where there is a reaction there. I was replying to you in discussion and so used you as an example, that is common, there is nothing attributing there.

All I am trying to point out is that if the thesis of this thread come true, then the reality of the situation is developed world governments will be bankrupt with limited tax options and huge unfunded liabilities/promises to voters. The pressure to find funding mechanisms for past unfunded promises will be thundering.

It is important to anticipate this possibility if you are predicting bitcoin as future global money as a possibility.


So no money to bomb their enemies?
