Jon Van Loo was one of the speakers on a panel discussing Tax Implications for Cryptocurrency in Palo Alto on May 22.  Jon discussed topics such as major tax issues facing issuers or creators of new cryptocurrency, tax issues for crypto funds and investors in cryptocurrency, and the tax treatment of investing in crypto start-ups.  Jon focused in particular on two major issues facing this sector: the timing of income recognition for funds raised in initial coin offerings (ICOs) and new contracts and forms of investing in early-stage crypto start-ups.
