    One of the common myths about Bitcoin is that it’s too expensive to buy any, now that price has risen into the range of thousands of Dollars.

    Most world governments do not recognize Bitcoin or crypto as legal tender, and the US is no exception. However, most governments tend to pigeonhole Bitcoin within a single, pre-existing category.

    Bitcoin Tax

    Few people enjoy paying taxes. This is especially true of those libertarians and crypto-anarchists who were some of the earliest adopters of Bitcoin. In their view, states had no involvement with the creation, development, or maintenance of Bitcoin, and therefore have little right to tax it.

    The Bitcoin Revolution

    Technical aspects aside, the fact that Bitcoin is deflationary money in a (hyper) inflationary world is a significant departure from the norm - perhaps not fully “revolutionary” as precious metals also fulfill such a role.
