Quick take

  • Raoul Pal, the founder and chief executive officer of Real Vision has recently commented on governments and central banks that they are much more prepared to roll out the central bank of digital currencies and people previously thought.
  • There is a strong interest right now in central bank digital currencies. 

Raoul Pal, the founder and chief executive officer of Real Vision has recently commented on governments and central banks in that they are much more prepared to roll out the central bank digital currencies than people previously thought.

There is a strong interest right now in central bank digital currencies. The Bank of England has looked into it but the measures they have taken when it comes to regulation are severe, to say the least. China and its “digital yuan“ seem to be the first to get launched as it is looking to be released at the end of this year. As to how that will go is unknown at the time of writing.

For those of you that don’t know, a CBDC would give central banks all over the world the power to set a multi-interest rate to work around banking institutions by creating a defined cost of capital to anyone at will and it will also do this with the cooperation of the government in question.

Pal said:

“Central Bank digital currencies are coming and they will change everything. They are coming under the stealth of X-border payments it means so much more”

On Twitter, the CEO discussed in a thread that central banks are seemingly laying down the framework to use digital currencies which would help circumvent banking and financial systems that are already in place. he went on to say:

“That completely changes monetary vs. fiscal policy for ever. CB’s will now be able to manage fiscal policy outside of government balance sheets.”

IRS crackdown on Coinbase users who are dodging their tax

IRS crackdown on Coinbase users who are dodging their tax

Quick take

1 minute read

  • The tax office of David W Klasing has just issued a public release morning the United State IRS is cracking down seriously with users on the Coinbase platform.
  • The dual licensed tax lawyers employed at the company say that they have been tracking an increase in IRS enforcement activity against users on the platform you are not complying with their requirements for tax and reports.

A specialised Californian tax company, the tax office of David W Klasing has recently issued a public release stating the United States internal revenue service (IRS) is cracking down seriously with users on the Coinbase platform.

The dual-licensed tax lawyers employed at the company say that they have been tracking an increase in IRS enforcement activity against users on the platform who are not complying with their requirements for tax and reports.

The company has heeded a warning saying people who are not paying the tax on the platform “end up facing serious civil and criminal trouble down the line”. They further say:

“If you have failed to report holding Bitcoin or other virtual currencies on your past returns or filed an incomplete or misleading picture of your cryptocurrency holdings, the time to act to correct this is now. Once an audit or criminal tax investigation has begun, it will be too late to amend your returns or take advantage of a voluntary disclosure program.”

A transparency report was released by the exchange earlier this year in October which was highlighted by the law company saying that it should “serve as a major wake-up call“ to users of the exchange.

For those that don’t know, this report clearly indicated that both the IRS and its criminal investigation unit were filing information requests with the platform.

The uptick in the enforcement activity against Coinbase uses from the IRS on those who don’t their taxes would appear to confirm that the exchange is cooperating closely with federal authorities in the United States as the company has further said:

“This data [in the October report] makes it clear that the IRS is requesting information from Coinbase for the express purpose of checking it against its own taxpayer data and looking for discrepancies where holdings on Coinbase have not been reported on taxpayers’ returns.”

Cryptocurrency has been going at an immense rate over the course of 2020. With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing and the economic crisis that came as a result still ongoing, crypto is looking as a tasty alternative for many all over the world.

Cuba is one such country that has been seeing a spike in its crypto activities over the course of this year. This comes as there is an absence of related regulation in the country according to senior executives at local crypto companies.

Earlier this month, the nation recorded a massive spike in Google queries relating to bitcoin which suggested an increase in crypto activity in the nation.

Speaking to CT, a local crypto exchange Bitremesas said that the platform has been slowly but surely growing over the course of this year and has seen a noticeable influx in its user activity in recent times. The creator of the exchange, Erich Garcia said “By now, the use of the service is increasing at 200% every month.” 

Mario Mazzola, another founder of a different local exchange known as Qbita, said:

“Bitcoin usage and volume in Cuba is exploding right now.”

Cryptocurrency regulations in Cuba are next to none. They are completely deregulated according to local enthusiasts. Some say that they are neither legal nor illegal but the government in Cuba has favourably looked to the industry in the past.
