  • Good news for Bitcoin Hodlers! An Internal Revenue Service official (IRS) has stated that taxpayers are not required to report Bitcoin holdings on FinCEN Form 114(Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts or FBAR).

What I should have said is that Bitcoin is a great unit of account—much better than the dollar.
