How are transactions taxed?

Crypto tax varies depending on where you live (so check out our country tax guides). However, generally speaking, you'll pay two kinds of tax on crypto - Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax.

  • Capital Gains Tax: If you've sold or traded crypto on, you'll likely pay Capital Gains Tax on any gain as a result.

  • Income Tax: If you're earning crypto on - for example, through staking or hashrate mining - you'll likely need to pay Income Tax on any new coins or tokens upon receipt.

Does provide tax documents?
