In late 2017 and on in to early 2018, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies went through a phenomenal rise in value. Many early investors in these currencies, and the underlying blockchain technology, saw their portfolio values increase exponentially.
One of the common questions coming from the cryptocurrency community at this time was – is this taxable? And it didn’t matter where in the world they were, governments across the globe either had bare-bones guidance on how they intended to tax cryptocurrencies or, more often than not, no guidance at all.
Since this time, we has been helping cryptocurrency clients navigate this troublesome landscape and has become on of the UK’s most well-known and respected experts on the taxation of cryptocurrency.
Since his initial article on the Taxation of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, Adrian has hosted a number of online webinars, as well as a workshop in London, on the topic. He has also been interviewed for articles in the Express, ICO Examiner, and Bloomberg.
