Taxes on Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies have grown quickly from a niche technology with a tech-savvy user base to an entirely new asset class that has attracted attention from a broad range of individual investors, as well as mainstream institutions.

You’ll often see cryptocurrencies criticized for being a speculative asset, yet studies show that emerging markets in Africa, South America and Southeast Asia are increasingly using cryptocurrencies as actual currencies. For example, data from Statista shows that one out of three respondents to a survey in Nigeria own or use cryptocurrencies.

While cryptocurrency interest from North American and European investors is largely speculative, steady growth in other markets demonstrates the possibility of overcoming challenges with traditional fiat currencies. Additionally, next-generation cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Cardano have enabled entirely new technologies with powerful use cases.

Top 10 Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies have become an appealing opportunity for investors with medium to high risk tolerance. They are largely speculative, but emerging markets and new use cases are helping to realize the full utility of the asset class.

The crypto market is no stranger to intense volatility, making it a risky investment that can work for or against your portfolio. However, you can minimize this risk by sticking to the top cryptocurrencies that have already earned their place.

There are over 8,000 cryptocurrencies available, and a good starting point is those with higher market caps. In fact, research from Statista shows that the top 20 cryptocurrencies make up approximately 90 percent of the sector's total market cap.
