Cryptocurrencies are a new phenomenon with growing popularity. With all new currencies, investments and financial tools comes new accounting regulations. You need to learn to account for your cryptocurrencies from an accounting standpoint in a transparent and advantageous manner.
Despite the increased attention digital assets are receiving, the financial reporting for these assets doesn’t fit cleanly into existing accounting guidance under US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
A point to consider is that cryptocurrencies are not a debt security, nor an equity security (although a digital asset could be in the form of an equity security) because it does not represent an ownership interest in an entity. currently, by all measures it appears cryptocurrencies should not be accounted for as a financial asset.
