Ethereum and other forms of cryptocurrency including the “original” Bitcoin, DASH, Monero, Ripple and many more are each a form of digital currency that uses cryptography for security and anti-counterfeiting measures. Different types of formulas, all of which are cryptographic in nature, are used to record the movement of cryptocurrency between persons, limiting the amount of currency in circulation, and identifying the individual accounts that control it. Some of the legal issues inherent in the cryptocurrency industry are extremely complex, and often misunderstood in this newly developed economy, and as such, require a skilled Ethereum attorney to interpret them.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a  decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.

These apps run on a custom built  blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counter-party risk.

What are the laws concerning Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies?

The IRS has recently issued guidance stating that cryptocurrency is considered property for U.S. Federal tax purposes. Additionally, general tax principles that apply to property transactions apply to transactions using virtual currency. This also means that certain instances in which these currencies are acquired will be considered taxable income. As Ethereum and other cryptocurrency soar in popularity and value, government and regulatory bodies such as the IRS or Securities and Exchange Commission have struggled to keep pace – creating a loose framework of rules and regulations governing the use of cryptocurrency. The lack of clarity by such entities requires that individuals and businesses operating with Ethereum or other cryptocurrency align themselves with a knowledgeable and trusted legal advisor. Increased regulation of cryptocurrency both here in the United States and abroad can be expected as the use of Ethereum and other altcoins becomes prevalent. While many countries will most likely follow the lead of the U.S., the nuance found in each country’s tax and securities codes, to name just a few, will make compliance a daunting task in today’s global economy. The current regulations in place across the globe are as young as digital currency itself, and because of this, require an experienced cryptocurrency lawyer who is adept at interpreting and responding to ever changing regulations.
