BTC was named the best-performing asset of the past decade by 1,000%, with annualized returns of 230%, returning ten times more than Nasdaq 100—but not without extreme volatility. Bitcoin's price story has changed in recent times as institutional investors begin to invest in increasingly mature cryptocurrency markets. Bitcoin has shifted from being a currency to a store of value and a hedge against inflation as uncertainty around the U.S. dollar's future purchasing power rises.

Investing in cryptocurrencies is high-risk and speculative. With this high risk, comes the potential for high return—and loss. If you can stomach the turbulence, and pick your crypto investments wisely,  you can significantly outperform most any asset class.

    Drawbacks

  • Cryptocurrency is highly volatile. While it's one of few assets that present the possibility to 10x or even 100x your money, you could also lose it all in a matter of days.
  • It's become increasingly easy to buy some of the most popular crypto coins and major exchanges, but there's still a level of technical knowledge required, especially when it comes to storing your coins.
  • There's always the possibility that hackers can steal your coins and you could lose your investment. While you can put additional measures in place to secure your coins better, this will require a higher level of technical knowledge.

Income Tax

Crypto gains are taxed like stocks. The tax rates for crypto gains are the same as short- and long-term capital gains taxes for stocks. Short-term capital gains are treated as income (same tax rate you pay on your annual earnings) and long-term capital gains are taxed between 0% and 20% depending on your income tax bracket.
