Trading cryptocurrency has become easier than ever, thanks to the development of sophisticated exchange platforms and new, user-friendly storage options. Yet there is one issue that can prove challenging for even relatively advanced traders: Cryptocurrency and taxes.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what you need to know about how to report cryptocurrency on taxes. You can also reference our latest article we did with CryptoTrader.tax.

Welcome to Haasbot 2.1. We are pleased to announce that we are releasing this somewhat major update! There are quite a few changes as well as the much anticipated integration with the whiteserver network. This release also addresses the issues that users had with Cryptsy, so you guys should be good to with this.
In addition, we are going to start powering on with more beta builds for Haasbot 2.1.1, so get ready beta testing team! We have very ambitious plans, such as speeding up the price polling to around 1 second. This will be an option, as it will require more CPU resources, but we will finally be able to allow users to do some real time trading with haasbot! This is a big step for us and it will push our whiteserver network to the limit 🙂 We would also like to announce that we have gotten half of the exchanges we support to whitelist our whiteservers, which will enable us to get going with real time trading. I cannot give an ETA on this yet, but thats the direction we are heading. We will also be adding orderbook data for the marketview page, as well as for the trade bots, so you will have everything you need to do manual trades via the marketview page.
