HMRC updates tax guidance for digital currencies.
Since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, cryptocurrencies have grown steadily into the public consciousness, and the taxman's too. Once the realm of geeks and hackers, cryptocurrencies are becoming more mainstream.
In late 2017, the price of a single Bitcoin surged to about $20,000 before falling away dramatically.
Yes, speculative fortunes have been made and lost, but it continues to pique people's interest. HMRC has taken a growing interest in their use too, and of course their taxation.
