IANAL warning

Bitcoin are money so,  in my opinion, they should be taxable income as
if the guy is pain € or yen or gold.

If you have time to watch the many interesting video of Bitcoin 2013 in
San Jose on YouTube, you could see a very boring (but very useful) talk
about Bitcoin and taxes from an expert.


The Internet Archive pay some of its employees in Bitcoin. They just
have an internal ATM where employees can exchange part of their paycheck
in Bitcoin. The Internet Archive also incorporated as a Credit Union.


For now, the FinCen is interested only in the interface between US$ and
BTC. They are not interested in people paying groceries with BTC, just
with people exchanging US$ for BTC and the reverse.

Anyway, there are forces at work that can solve many of these problems:

Dan Dascalescu - Blueseed Ship - Bitcoin 2013 Conference

Edan Yago - The World's First Cryptocurrency-based Political Zone -
Bitcoin 2013
