IRS addresses crypto and businesses

On Tuesday, the Internal Revenue Service announced that businesses are not obligated to report digital assets in the same manner as they do cash, until new regulations are established.

This new policy came into effect on January 1st, due to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which mandates that businesses report crypto transactions exceeding $10,000, as if it were cash.

CoinCenter, the crypto lobbying group, filed a lawsuit against the IRS, arguing that the rule “will impose a mass surveillance regime on ordinary Americans.”

“Treasury and the IRS intend to issue proposed regulations to provide additional information and procedures for reporting the receipt of digital assets, giving the public an opportunity to comment both in writing and, if requested, at a public hearing,” the IRS said in a statement.

“Nothing in this announcement affects the income tax obligations of persons engaged in a trade or business who receive digital assets and persons who use digital assets to make any payments in the types of transactions described above,” the tax authority said.

Earlier, we reported that Arthur Hayes, the co-founder of BitMEX, has shared his optimistic outlook on the future of Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital assets.

According to Hayes, the total market cap for these assets could potentially surge by more than $1.3 trillion in the current year.

In his recent essay, Hayes further predicted that by the year 2024, the total market capitalization for all digital assets could reach or even surpass the all-time high (ATH) market cap that was achieved in 2021.

“The bull market is just beginning. 2024 will be a choppy year with regards to price action, but I still expect by year-end, we will be at or above an all-time high in the market cap of Bitcoin and the entire crypto complex.”
