If the government actually sees bitcoin as a currency, they need to stop making us pay capital gains tax on it

They don’t charge capital gains on forex

@captainmorgan Never sell. If you need dirty fiat take out a loan against it. Options to do this are becoming more prevalent. It's a trick the ultra wealth use to grow capital without paying taxes. Buy appreciating assets, take out loan, invest in cash flow.

@Full_node I know! Definitely not selling anytime soon. Just one of many double standards from the US Gov

@captainmorgan Figured as much, but throwing the suggestion for others who maybe reading the thread as well. I'm also not happy with the double standard. Not like there's anything they do that I'm not annoyed with so its par for the course.
