Investing in Cryptocurrency
As a completely new asset class, cryptocurrency investments involve significant risks that should only be considered by those willing to accept the complete loss of their investment. Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, and their values often fluctuate rapidly. Many investors may also be unaware that their cryptocurrency purchases and trading are subject to taxes depending on their residency and trading location – with potential sales or value-added taxes (VAT).
Before investing in any asset class, it is wise to research its company and underlying technology before buying cryptocurrency. Be sure you’re getting good value and have a plan for safely storing your investment – as there have been incidents in which cryptocurrencies were stolen in recent months alone!
An additional risk associated with cryptocurrencies lies in their unregulated status in the U.S. Unlike financial services industries, which are highly regulated and allow us to understand a firm’s financial health through reporting, cryptocurrency market regulations are minimal, making assessing the financial health of projects more challenging. Additionally, they often link with specific technologies being developed or deployed, the failure of which can have devastating effects on their market price.
As intangible technology assets, cryptocurrencies can be subject to hacking just like any other asset. Care should be taken when selecting where and when storing cryptocurrency; always back up any wallets owned or controlled by yourself or someone you trust.
Investors should remember that cryptocurrency investments do not guarantee any specific profit or return, and anyone promising otherwise is likely trying to scam you. Before investing, thoroughly research and read independent news articles about the currency before making your decision, and remember that U.S. law does not recognize cryptocurrency as legal tender.

John Doe Lawsuits
If you have invested in cryptocurrency, there is the possibility that you could face a John Doe lawsuit. Unlike traditional cases that target specific defendants directly, John Doe suits seek out unknown parties using the discovery process as they uncover who is behind anonymous posts or reviews. Consulting with an experienced attorney will help determine if a John Doe suit is worth filing in your particular situation.
IRS has begun using John Doe summonses to track down cryptocurrency users who may have failed to report their gains to the government. Although virtual currency transactions provide some level of anonymity, one former Justice Department tax prosecutor now working at Baker & Hostetler pointed out there are ways of breaking through them with summonses such as these being filed with one filing by federal agencies identifying multiple people at once.
These summonses seek information from cryptocurrency exchanges like SFOX, Coinbase, Kraken, and Poloniex. Recently approved court summonses target taxpayers who have made at least $20,000 worth of cryptocurrency sales since 2016.
John Doe’s summonses are only part of the IRS’s responsibility for identifying noncompliant taxpayers. Other sources, such as money laundering investigations and third-party reporting, also help build cases against tax evaders.
If the information gleaned through summonses indicates that one tax preparer is aiding multiple individuals with tax evasion, they could face criminal scrutiny; however, their use has been challenged constitutionally in the U.S. District Court for New Hampshire.
Before filing a John Doe lawsuit or any other type of litigation, you must make an informed decision. Consulting with an experienced attorney may help determine if your claims meet defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress standards; otherwise, it might be best to seek alternative remedies instead. A lawyer can also ensure that all elements of your complaint have been fulfilled and support damages claimed within your complaint.
