You might even be surprised to find that your government wants you to pay up for hodling, staking, or even gifting coins to someone else. Tax is one of the few tools governments have for striking back at Bitcoin, so make sure you’re not caught blindsided.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”222c” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;The common misconception that Bitcoin is anonymous stems from the fact that transaction tracing came much later than the network itself, meaning many early adopters enjoyed stacking and trading crypto in the law’s blind spot for several years. Nowadays, expect serious implications for avoiding taxes on your crypto, even though the definition of what constitutes a taxable event may seem unreasonable or illogical to those with a basic understanding of bitcoin.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”6f63″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Tax season is again extended in many places this year, so make sure you take the time to understand your obligations. We will cover some of the main things you should know but please note that this is not an exhaustive list intended to cover every possible scenario. Always check with your local tax office to ensure you are fulfilling your crypto reporting duties.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”bd99″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;There are still a lot of uncertainties about &amp;amp;lt;a class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/will-crypto-laws-devastate-the-industry-or-help-it-grow-stronger-8bdf9b905c32″&amp;amp;gt;how cryptocurrencies should be regulated&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; and many countries take an &amp;amp;lt;a class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/pro-blockchain-anti-crypto-the-curious-case-of-china-russia-and-india-1a126d5ba404″&amp;amp;gt;uncomfortably tough stance&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; against them. Most exchanges adhere to &amp;amp;lt;a class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/kyc-and-aml-the-ball-and-chain-on-cryptocurrencies-f83c752a7ce”&amp;amp;gt;KYC and AML&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, meaning any crypto bought from them is likely tied to a national ID such as your passport or drivers’ license. It is best to assume that the tax regulator in your country is tracking your purchases and will know if you profited over the last year.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”565f” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;If you simply purchased and held your crypto without making intermediary trades, you may not need to pay anything in your country but you could be expected to send a declaration nonetheless.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h1 id=”c205″ class=”is it ds cd iu iv iw hy ix iy iz ic ja jb jc jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm jn ep”&amp;amp;gt;Crypto taxes in the United States of America&amp;amp;lt;/h1&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”f5f8″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jo hy hz ia jp ic id ie jq ig ih ii jr ik il im js io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;If you live in the USA and have bought, sold or exchanged cryptocurrencies over the last year, you may owe&amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt; short-term capital gains &amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;tax at the same rate as your usual income tax bracket. This applies to any losses or gains on crypto assets that you have held less than one year. Up to $3,000 of losses can also be deducted to lessen your tax bill, with any excess carrying over to later years.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”bdc5″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;If you have traded coins bought over a year ago, you are liable for &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;long-term capital gains&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;. This depends on your household income and can be 0%, 15%, or 20% of any gains your investment made.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”1adc” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;The IRS may require you to &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;prove which coins were sold&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt; if you sold some which were held some for over a year but continued to buy more in the interim. If you can prove the coins you sold were older than a year, you are eligible for the lower long-term capital gains rate. The &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/frequently-asked-questions-on-virtual-currency-transactions” class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;IRS gives limited options to evidence this&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, including using “the specific unit’s unique digital identifier such as a private key, public key, and address, or by records showing the transaction information for all units of a specific virtual currency, such as Bitcoin, held in a single account, wallet, or address.”&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”9950″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Few exchanges provide much of this information and their transactions are often bundled together, which makes it difficult to fulfill these requirements. If you hold your own keys and sell directly through your wallet, which you can do in Trezor Suite, you can easily segregate your coins across different addresses and label transactions to make tax accounting easier.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”1e98″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Remember, it’s not just exchanging crypto for fiat that needs to be reported. In the US, you also &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;need to declare if you&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;:&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;ul class&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;li id=”21e7″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq ju jv jw ep”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Exchanged one cryptocurrency for another&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;. This is calculated based on the dollar value of the transaction: if you bought 0.3 Ethereum bought for $40 last year and sell it for $500 worth of Bitcoin today, you realize a taxable gain of $460.&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;li id=”37db” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jx hy hz ia jy ic id ie jz ig ih ii ka ik il im kb io ip iq ju jv jw ep”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Bought something for crypto directly&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;. Since crypto is treated as property, you will usually be taxed if you use it to buy a house, car, computer or other product, based on how much you paid for the crypto and the value of the purchased product. Long and short-term capital gains apply depending on how long you held the coin before the purchase.&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;li id=”1891″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jx hy hz ia jy ic id ie jz ig ih ii ka ik il im kb io ip iq ju jv jw ep”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Sold cryptocurrencies received through other means&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;. Mined coins, airdrops, yield from DeFi products or staking rewards, and any crypto payments you have received all count as income, and the IRS will expect you to pay income tax for any address you own.

Countries who are members of the global Financial Action task Force (FATF) are subject to its recommendations and therefore most are expected to try to enforce the Travel Rule and other mechanisms the international organization has conjured up.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kc kd ke kf kg kh”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;a target=”_blank” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/what-the-recent-string-of-regulations-tells-us-about-cryptocurrencies-future-c5e0131c70e1″&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”ki n ap”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kj n kk p kl km”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 class=”dt b kn ko bj kp fd fe kq fg fh dr ep”&amp;amp;gt;What recent regulations tell us about cryptocurrencies’ future&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kr s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h3 class=”cd b ks cf bj kt fd fe kq fg fh cg”&amp;amp;gt;By Michael Borowiec, contributor to Trezor Blog — Today, we will delve a little deeper into some of the most recent developments in crypto regulation…&amp;amp;lt;/h3&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”ku s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p class=”cd b ce cf bj kt fd fe kq fg fh cg”&amp;amp;gt;blog.trezor.io&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kv s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kw s kx ky kz kv la lb kh”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”4867″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;That said, for the time being there are a number of European countries who have opted to allow their citizens fair reign over their crypto assets. &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Germany&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;, for example, expects no payment of long-term capital gains for funds held over a year, but net intra-year gains are taxed as income. &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Malta, Switzerland&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt; and &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Slovenia&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt; are similarly lenient on long-term investors, while &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Portugal&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt; and &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv jt”&amp;amp;gt;Belarus&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt; are both aiming to attract more entrepreneurs by barely taxing crypto assets at all.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”69ad” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;This individualism could very well help push back against the all-smothering approach regulatory groups such as the FATF are proposing. It is yet to be seen how many nations will choose to subscribe to their recommendations. Countries which do, will make it much more complicated for the average person to efficiently use cryptocurrency. Those who instead embrace Bitcoin will not want to see it stifled and, we can hope, would object to any regional laws that infringe on peoples’ right to use it.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h1 id=”65d0″ class=”is it ds cd iu iv iw hy ix iy iz ic ja jb jc jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm jn ep”&amp;amp;gt;How to pay taxes on your crypto&amp;amp;lt;/h1&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”77e3″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jo hy hz ia jp ic id ie jq ig ih ii jr ik il im js io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;For anyone who trades cryptocurrencies regularly, even in small amounts, keeping track of your buys and sells can be daunting. The best way to approach it is to get an export of all transactions from any exchanges you use, and sort them in a spreadsheet. Make a habit out of maintaining this spreadsheet and it will become much easier to work out your liabilities.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”36f8″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Use the spreadsheet to help calculate total gains or losses over the year, and then fill out the tax form your country requires. Make sure to check if your country has specific tax processes in place for crypto, and be aware that spot trading, derivatives, staking, lending, mining, airdrops and other ways of acquiring cryptocurrencies can each be interpreted differently across jurisdictions.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”165a” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;In the USA, you are supposed to use &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8949.pdf” class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;Form 8949&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; to report crypto-related short or long-term capital gains as well as the usual &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sd.pdf” class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;capital gains form&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, but any income from crypto will be taxed using the &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040s1.pdf” class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;additional income form&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, or the &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sc.pdf” class=”cj ir” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;self employed earnings form&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”107b” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;In Europe and other parts of the world, you will need to check with your local tax authority if there are any steps you need to take to declare your crypto.

In most circumstances, these coins cannot be retrieved and permanently exit the currency’s circulating supply. More often than not, lost coins can be traced back to user error, so let’s take a look at how to avoid costly mistakes.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h1 id=”97fb” class=”ir is ds cd it iu iv hy iw ix iy ic iz ja jb jc jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ep”&amp;amp;gt;Where the missing coins go&amp;amp;lt;/h1&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”2699″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Unlike fiat currencies like the US dollar, Bitcoin was designed to have a limited supply. While more bank notes can always be printed by the Federal Reserve, new bitcoin cannot be issued once all 21 million coins have been mined.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”3ad6″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Lost and destroyed Bitcoin further shrinks the currency’s maximum supply. According to &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5d580747908cdc0001e6792d/t/5e98dde5558a587a09fac0cc/1587076583519/research+note+4.17.pdf” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;Cane Island Digital Research&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, 4% of available bitcoin is lost each year. Despite Bitcoin being designed with a limited supply of 21 million coins, Cane Island estimates that a maximum of only 14 million bitcoin will ever circulate due to the rate at which coins are lost.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”323a” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;A &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://blog.chainalysis.com/reports/bitcoin-market-data-exchanges-trading” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;report&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; cited by the New York Times states that, of the 18.5 million bitcoin mined so far, an estimated 20 percent appear to be inaccessible or lost. At the time of the NYT report, the value of this inaccessible bitcoin was somewhere in the ballpark of $140 billion USD. Proponents theorize that lost coins only serve to increase the value of the remaining currency, as they increase Bitcoin’s scarcity.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h1 id=”d342″ class=”ir is ds cd it iu iv hy iw ix iy ic iz ja jb jc jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ep”&amp;amp;gt;How can Bitcoin get lost, stolen, or destroyed?&amp;amp;lt;/h1&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”feb5″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;There are a few ways in which bitcoin can get lost or destroyed. The most common of these boil down to mistakes made when storing or sending the asset.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 id=”1d4a” class=”jt is ds cd it ju jv jw iw jx jy jz iz ka kb kc jd kd ke kf jh kg kh ki jl kj ep”&amp;amp;gt;Bitcoin sent to fraudulent or inaccessible addresses&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”5514″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;When sending bitcoin from one wallet to another, the user is asked for a string of 26 to 35 characters which serves as the recipient’s address. Most wallets are actually extremely robust when it comes to making sure that this alphanumeric string matches the public key of a cryptocurrency wallet that actually exists. In other words, sending Bitcoin to the wrong address due to a typo is exceedingly rare.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”17a5″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;What is far more common, however, is sending bitcoin to the wrong wallet as a consequence of getting two addresses mixed up. A user might, for instance, send bitcoin to an address belonging to a fraudulent actor rather than the wallet address of a family member. They could also accidentally send bitcoin to a wallet they previously conducted business with rather than to the intended recipient of a new transaction. As long as someone has access to the receiving wallet, those coins should still remain in circulation.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”8325″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Bitcoin can also be sent to burn addresses or wallets that people have lost access to. Since bitcoin is immutable, there is no way to undo these transactions. Burn addresses, in this context, are those which belong to wallets that are virtually impossible to spend coins from. Sending coins to these addresses is equivalent to putting money into a safe that no one will ever be able to open.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”3449″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;In some instances, cryptocurrencies are intentionally sent to burn addresses. This process is known as “burning”. Some crypto assets use unspendable addresses in order to prove they are limiting the supply of their own currency.

For instance, many people store their bitcoin online on exchanges. In doing so, they are relying on the exchange to keep their assets secure. While there are certainly reputable exchanges operating in the world today, there have been a plethora of cases throughout the last decade where exchanges have stolen their users’ assets or failed to prevent hackers from doing so.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kk kl km kn ko kp”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;a target=”_blank” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/why-you-should-not-store-cryptocurrency-on-exchanges-7a3ceb7fd0c1″&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kq n ap”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kr n ks p kt ku”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 class=”dt b kv kw bj kx fd fe ky fg fh dr ep”&amp;amp;gt;Why you should not store cryptocurrency on exchanges&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kz s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h3 class=”cd b la cf bj lb fd fe ky fg fh cg”&amp;amp;gt;Whether you’re new to cryptocurrency or have years of experience, you’re probably still making one obvious mistake…&amp;amp;lt;/h3&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”lc s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p class=”cd b ce cf bj lb fd fe ky fg fh cg”&amp;amp;gt;blog.trezor.io&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”ld s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”le s lf lg lh ld li lj kp”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”e59c” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;According to &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://atlasvpn.com/blog/blockchain-hackers-have-stolen-over-13-6-billion-in-330-hack-events” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;Atlas VPN&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;, blockchain hackers stole nearly $3.78 billion USD worth of digital assets across 122 attacks in 2020.

The former refers to wallets which are internet-connected, offering increased accessibility. They can easily be used without any dedicated hardware and often take only a few minutes to set up. However, this storage method is vulnerable to breach.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”5127″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Cold wallets, on the other hand, are ways of storing your cryptocurrencies offline. They are much more secure, as they prevent hackers from gaining access. However, not all cold wallets are equally user-friendly. A significant amount of bitcoin has been permanently lost due to people &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv lk”&amp;amp;gt;losing the &amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://wiki.trezor.io/Private_key” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv lk”&amp;amp;gt;private key&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; which grants them access to their wallet. In addition, there have been many cases of hardware being misplaced or failing where the user didn’t create a backup, making the funds impossible to retrieve.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”4000″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Every year, there are hundreds of stories about people losing their private key or throwing away a drive that had their Bitcoin wallet on it. This year, for instance, a programmer in San Francisco made &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/12/technology/bitcoin-passwords-wallets-fortunes.html” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;headlines&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; when he found himself locked out of an encrypted drive with a reported $220 million USD worth of bitcoin stored on it. According to the article, he only has two remaining attempts to input the correct password before his coins are permanently lost.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 id=”22a0″ class=”jt is ds cd it ju jv jw iw jx jy jz iz ka kb kc jd kd ke kf jh kg kh ki jl kj ep”&amp;amp;gt;Billions of dollars worth of bitcoins are in limbo&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”6d9d” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Zombie coins are those with addresses that have not had any outgoing transactions for years yet could theoretically still be accessed.

This address has been holding 79,957 bitcoin since 2011, and no one knows for sure if those coins will ever re-enter circulation. It stands to reason that the owner may be deceased or have lost access to their wallet. At today’s bitcoin price, the current holdings of this wallet address are worth more than $4.8 billion USD.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/section&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”n p eq ll lm ln” role=”separator”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;span class=”lo ev fy lp lq lr”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/span&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;span class=”lo ev fy lp lq lr”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/span&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;span class=”lo ev fy lp lq”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/span&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;section class=”dk dl dm dn do”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”n p”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”ab ac ae af ag dp ai aj”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h1 id=”4de7″ class=”ir is ds cd it iu ls hy iw ix lt ic iz ja lu jc jd je lv jg jh ji lw jk jl jm ep”&amp;amp;gt;How to keep your bitcoin safe&amp;amp;lt;/h1&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”89d1″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Since most cases of lost bitcoin can be chalked up to user error, the good news is that keeping your assets safe is relatively easy once you know what to look out for.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 id=”aa93″ class=”jt is ds cd it ju jv jw iw jx jy jz iz ka kb kc jd kd ke kf jh kg kh ki jl kj ep”&amp;amp;gt;What to look out for when spending bitcoin&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”2533″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;When sending bitcoin transactions, the first thing to pay attention to is the recipient’s address. As we covered in the previous section, most wallets are effective at preventing you from sending a transaction to an address that does not actually exist. However, you do have to consciously &amp;amp;lt;strong class=”hv lk”&amp;amp;gt;make sure that you have not mixed up two valid addresses&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;. For instance, you might have an old address in the recipient field which you forgot to change.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”4302″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Double checking that you have the correct address is crucial, as the crypto industry is rife with phishing scams which attempt to deceive people into sending digital currencies to their address. These scammers often pretend to be an authority or someone you know. Once you send bitcoin to them, there is no way to undo the transaction.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kk kl km kn ko kp”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;a target=”_blank” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/bitcoin-addresses-and-how-to-use-them-35e7312098ff”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kq n ap”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kr n ks p kt ku”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 class=”dt b kv kw bj kx fd fe ky fg fh dr ep”&amp;amp;gt;Bitcoin Addresses and How to Use them&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;div class=”kz s”&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h3 class=”cd b la cf bj lb fd fe ky fg fh cg”&amp;amp;gt;In the pursuit of better technology, things get a little messy along the way.

In order to ensure that you are not victim to malware or fraud, it is important to have a way to know exactly what address you are including the transaction..&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”2d9b” class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Some physical storage wallets, such as Trezor, protect your bitcoin by allowing you to verify the transaction address you are signing, through a &amp;amp;lt;a class=”cj js” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/what-are-you-looking-at-why-the-trusted-display-of-a-trezor-is-guaranteed-to-boost-your-security-d1545f0e48e9″&amp;amp;gt;trusted display&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;. This means that even if malware or a fraudulent browser extension changes the address you see on your screen, Trezor will still display the actual address so that you can cancel the transaction.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”d924″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;The next thing to do when conducting a transaction is to check that you are setting an appropriate fee. With Trezor, optimal fees are calculated according to estimated confirmation times, or you can set a custom fee of your own. Some crypto wallets auto-fill fees or suggest ones which are grossly overstated so it’s a good idea to look up &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://whatthefee.io/” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;current fee confirmation times&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; to work out how much to spend.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”2744″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Double checking the fee is important as there have been some cases in the past where people have accidentally sent small transactions and paid exorbitant fees. For instance, &amp;amp;lt;a href=”https://decrypt.co/31830/someone-just-made-a-2-6-million-mistake-on-ethereum” class=”cj js” rel=”noopener”&amp;amp;gt;Decrypt&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; reported that an address paid over 2.6 bitcoin in fees just to send 0.01088549 BTC. Further, setting too low a fee can slow down your transaction or cause it to become stuck. If this happens, Trezor’s &amp;amp;lt;a class=”cj js” rel=”noopener” href=”https://blog.trezor.io/fixing-bitcoin-transaction-problems-using-rbf-23dca3d26746″&amp;amp;gt;replace by fee&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; feature will help you increase the fee to one that will confirm quicker.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;h2 id=”9700″ class=”jt is ds cd it ju jv jw iw jx jy jz iz ka kb kc jd kd ke kf jh kg kh ki jl kj ep”&amp;amp;gt;How to safely store your digital assets&amp;amp;lt;/h2&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”8335″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw jn hy hz ia jo ic id ie jp ig ih ii jq ik il im jr io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;When storing cryptocurrencies, the safest option is to opt for cold storage by using a hardware wallet. These are far more secure than the hot wallets that you find online. By storing assets on secure hardware that is not connected to the Internet, you are able to mitigate any potential risk of breach.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”8880″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;In order to avoid losing access to your bitcoin in the event of a misplaced device or hardware failure, it is important to have a backup solution in place. This solution can be as simple as having a backup drive that stores a copy of your wallet. However, you still run a risk of the device failing or being compromised when you connect it.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;p id=”b809″ class=”ht hu ds hv b hw hx hy hz ia ib ic id ie if ig ih ii ij ik il im in io ip iq dk ep”&amp;amp;gt;Cryptocurrency storage solutions such as Trezor let you to store your cryptocurrencies offline, allowing you to avoid the risk of having your assets stolen.

It is important to keep this recovery seed secure in physical form such as handwritten on paper — never store it digitally.
