"The way you use it is the way it's taxed," says Greene-Lewis who has noticed an increased demand for clarification on this type of reporting. "There's more questions coming up as more people are trading."
Greene-Lewis says that, if one is mining cryptocurrency, it becomes taxable when the asset is recognized.
