According to Peter Van Valkenburgh, research director at the Coin Center, Bitcoin may not spell the end of traditional currency and banking.

«I think there are people in the Bitcoin community who are probably making too much noise about how Bitcoin is going to dominate all economic systems. And, that no one will use more dollars or banks. I think that’s actually a bit foolishVan Valkenburgh said in an interview Friday with the Washington Journal on C-Span.

During the interview he highlighted that the way Bitcoin is used may depend on the geographical location of the users. In some countries, Bitcoin (BTC) is considered more of a speculative asset, used for trading and investing.

«Generally speaking, here in America, you will probably still use credit cards and Venmo and things like that. But you may want to buy some Bitcoin because it can be a way to balance your investment portfolio against the threat of inflation.Van Valkenburgh said, later referring to the similarity to gold in terms of limited supply.

Australian tax office urged citizens to report their earnings or there will be consequences

The Australian Tax Office has urged citizens to accurately report any profit made in the process of trading cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Anticipating the tax returns of a group of 600,000 Australians who now assume they have invested in digital assets.

ATO Assistant Commissioner Tim Loh said that people still make the mistake of treating cryptocurrencies as a currency rather than an asset. The ATO wants to rid citizens of the myth that cryptocurrency earnings are tax-free. Or that they only need to be declared when they are switched to fiat money.

Loh said the tax office already knew who invests in cryptocurrencies. Thanks to the cooperation it has received from exchanges and banking institutions.

«We track the money back to the taxpayer and we do it through the ATO which has data matching profiles with cryptocurrency exchanges. They give us that information and we use that information to compare it to people’s tax returns.Loh said.
