The whole crypto currency is a bit of an enigma for me, so please help me understand if there are any tax implications of the following:
A client had some bitcoin held at crypto bank A and in 2021, he changed ‘banks’ and transferred the bitcoin to crypto Bank B. There were some fees associated with changing crypto banks. The amount of crypto he is holding is the same, but the value of it has changed from the time he initially bought the bitcoin and put it in crypto bank A, and the moment he transferred it to cryptobank B. Is there capital gain to declare for the increase in value from bank A to B with new ACB at bank B? Is it a ‘disposition’ by transferring from bank A to bank B even though the currency was never changed and no bitcoin was ‘cashed out’ and the quantity never changed ?
