What is Cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrency is decentralized digital money that’s based on blockchain technology. A blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that records transactions in code. In practice, it’s a little like a check book that’s distributed across countlesscomputers around the world.
Transactions are recorded in “blocks” that are then linked together on a “chain” of previous cryptocurrency transactions. With a blockchain, everyone who uses a cryptocurrency has their own copy of this book to create a unified transaction record. Each new transaction as it happens is logged, and every copy of the blockchain is updated simultaneously with the new information, keeping all records identical and accurate.
To prevent fraud, each transaction is checked using a validation technique, such as proof of work or proof of stake.
Why Do I need this Service
Cryptocurrency is taxable in Canada as a commodity where it is seen as a capital gain such as a stock or property or business income if you are mining or lending cryptocurrencies.
Under the guidance produced by the CRA, taxable events occur upon the disposition of any cryptocurrency. Disposition is the CRA’s term for “giving, selling or transferring” something, which in this case is a crypto asset. In general, common crypto dispositions that would be considered as taxable events include:
• Paying for goods and services using cryptocurrency.
• Selling crypto assets
• Trading one cryptocurrency for another (including swaps, exchanges and peer-to-peer trades)
• Cashing out cryptocurrencies into fiat currency
• Gifting crypto assets to friends, family or work colleagues
