Does Hotbit report to the IRS?

Hotbit doesn't require KYC for the majority of users, only users identified as high risk, like if they need to reset their 2FA settings. As such, it's unlikely Hotbit is reporting to the IRS or any other tax offices. This said, as a large centralized exchange, Hotbit is undoubtedly facing pressure to improve KYC processes in order to ensure tax compliance, so this could change quickly.
