What are my responsibilities as a cryptocurrency trader?

  • Filing statement of business or professional activities with personal tax return
  • Reporting capital gains and losses upon sale of currency
  • Remittance of estimated tax installments

Are crypto gains or losses taxed as business income (100% taxable) or capital gains (50% taxable)?

This distinction can have a significant impact on your tax expense and is dependent upon several factors including whether or not the cryptocurrency was purchased with the intention of selling it at a profit. Ensure you consult with a CPA before reporting cryptocurrency income to CRA as the tax consequences of making a mistake may be costly.
