Cryptocurrency taxes depend on how each government envisions the function of the crypto market in the country’s financial economy. Some cryptos are taxable, like in the US, where the IRS considers cryptos as properties, and hence, holders are subjected to certain property taxes.

The most popular and widely heard of cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. As of early January 2021, the total cryptocurrency market is over $1 trillion, and Bitcoin is around $700 billion. Believe it or not, there are over 7,800 cryptocurrencies in existence and growing. The top five, with over 80 percent of the market value, are Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Tether, and Litecoin.
