Your taxes right that's one thing Another thing to that is if we're Specifically talking about paying taxes In general It's important to note that if you've Just purchased the cryptocurrency and it Was going down the entire year you were Probably a lot less likely to actually Sell that cryptocurrency and even if you Did the likelihood that it was at a loss Means that you would not actually pay Taxes on that capital gains but you Would file a loss on those capital gains Which of course they've limited to three Thousand dollars for an individual Because I don't really know why Um talk to your CPA about that as well Very very Backwards in my humble opinion but It is what it is There's too many factors to say that Right if the rates were higher for 2021 The rates were probably higher in 2021 Because more people actually profited Off of the purchasing and selling of Cryptocurrency and therefore you Actually had taxes to pay but let's see If they have any more insight here the Methodology used to arrive at the Estimates is questionable the report Itself qualifies the result by noting That search volume data may not Accurately reflect the actual number of

Is not complying and warned that those Who fail to report their crypto profits Now risk it catching up with them in Future years tall War emphasized that Although the risk of non-compliance for Crypto is comparatively higher than Other asset classes tax authorities in Many countries have processes in place To obtain data from crypto exchanges he Added that coinly had seen awareness of Crypto tax increase considerably among Investors in these jurisdictions with Only 15 percent of surveyed crypto Investors being unaware of crypto tax Reporting duties now I will say this in General just because I think it's Important the ease of tracking is Directly related to centralized Exchanges which means if you really want To protect your assets you want to mine Cryptocurrency because that gives you The Virgin cryptocurrency I'm not saying Don't report that virgin cryptocurrency But if it's being tracked by the Government it can be tracked by others As well and this means that you put Yourself at more risk purchasing Cryptocurrency through a centralized Exchange especially something like Coinbase Etc then you are at purchasing A piece of mining hardware and Mining it To a wallet that's never been touched by Any of that sort of thing because kyc And if we are talking about moving into

The future yes this does align with Cypherpunks the fact of the matter is is That like for your own Financial Freedom And autonomy it's important to make sure That you stand up for your right to Privacy as it pertains to your finances And to cryptocurrency and the thing is Is if you're doing nothing wrong and Reporting what you need to report and Paying your taxes then there should be No reason for them to track you in my Humble opinion so I do lean towards that From the mining perspective as being an Important factor especially when we Start to talk about things like Confiscation of cryptocurrency because As we saw with the sell-off of the Bitcoin by the US government that was Basically taken from Silk Road if you Had a wallet that had purchased through A centralized exchange that had some Bitcoin from Silk Road and then that Wallet that you had was doxed the Government technically has capabilities To confiscate that right and you didn't Do anything wrong you just purchased Some Bitcoin right but now your Bitcoin's confiscated and they're Selling it off Right That's it's just crazy so that that's All the reasoning behind that thanks for Checking out this clip from the crypto Mining show you can check out the full
