Frequently asked questions

What is digital currency?

Digital currency is a type of currency powered by blockchain technology. It enables instantaneous transactions and borderless transfer-of-ownership. Bitcoin was the first digital currency, but there are many others. Transactions are automatically verified by a large global network of independent participants. This leads to secure payments that are settled worldwide in minutes. 

Although digital currency is not government-backed, “digital dollars” like USDC are backed 1:1 by US dollars held in bank reserves, issued by licensed and regulated money transmitters, and subject to monthly attestations by independent auditors.

Digital currency is frequently cited by international monetary authorities as a significant financial innovation. Existing financial regulations are being adapted worldwide to provide legal and tax clarity and protect consumers.

What are the tax implications of digital currency?

In the United States, the IRS treats digital currency as property subject to capital gains tax. Some digital currencies like Bitcoin vary in price compared to the US dollar and may have tax consequences. Others such as Coinbase's USDC are pegged 1:1 to the US dollar and incur minimal tax liabilities.

Gilded makes it easy to generate IRS-compliant tax forms. Please speak to a tax professional about your individual needs.
