The excitement around Bitcoin (BTC) has resurfaced with the talk of institutional investors such as Blackrock and Goldman Sachs expressing their interests in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. The way things are going, 5 to 10 years to the future, the early birds who got into crypto investing during this time period, will be telling stories of how they trusted their guts in buying the numerous digital assets available in the crypto markets.

One such digital asset is ICON ICX and good times are knocking for the digital asset that has a very impressive past in the crypto markets. ICX is currently trading at $1.40 at the moment of writing this. The last time this value was seen, was back in early December last year before all hell broke loose and BTC was valued at $20,000 by the 17th of the same month. ICX would later peak at $12 in early January. The way the markets are looking with a resurgent Bitcoin, ICX could just be ready for another ride as the last one we saw in January.

Another thing that could lead to a bull run is that the ICX project recently completed a token swap that was spearheaded by the Binance exchange. Both the TRX and ICX token swaps were completed on the same day on the exchange signifying that both digital assets are now on their own blockchain networks and can be officially referred to as coins. We all know that this is a great step forward for both TRX and ICX. Keen investors love seeing progress in projects that have kept promises from their roadmaps. ICX has done just that. Therefore, there are investors watching from the sidelines and some are buying more of the digital asset. Which one do you want to be?

Thirdly, the ICON project is backed by numerous financial institutions, insurance firms, hospitals, and universities. One such strategic partner is the Korea Financial Investment Association (KOFIA) which is a network of 26 financial institutions in South Korea. There is also an unconfirmed partnership with SBI Ripple Asia and plans of furthering cross-border payments between Japan and South Korea. These are all amazing developments that mean that the coin will be on its way to a Moon Landing very soon.

Summing it all up, with a resurgent Bitcoin, comes the need to diversify our crypto portfolios with worthwhile digital assets backed by functional projects with a good team and results. ICON (ICX) is one such project and coin. The digital asset is at its lowest value this year and ripe for the buying.

The crypto community is still waiting for the US SEC to approve Bitcoin ETFs, with speculation which application might get approval being one of the hottest topics in 2018. However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
