    Bitcoin fell over 20% in the past 6 days from a high of $40k to under $32k.

    For something with a market cap of over $0.5T, it's ridiculously volatile.
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

      That's why I'd only put a relatively tiny amount in and probably forget about it for a while.

        not if you don't declare it. How they gonna know you've got it?

        And if you want to cash out enough such that a large tax bill might be a problem then you exit BTC to an offshore bank.
        The biggest issue with offshore banking these days is getting the money in and out. Crytpo coins provide a route for that.

          You can buy shares in Argo blockchain which is a Bitcoin miner, via shares ISA. Shares were 5p last year and this month shot up to 100p.

            Anyone filing an SATR is liable to audit, and I assume anyone running a Ltd is liable to have their personal accounts inspected for a business audit?

            "Why is this money in your account" seems a reasonable query to me.

            Also, I have no interest in fraud even if it's easy. Maybe especially when it's easy

              I was wondering about that sort of thing, although presumably the shares are not directly linked to the BC they own/create.

                If you have sufficient BTC such that you are committing tax evasion DON'T PUT IT IN YOUR OWN ACCOUNT

                like I said. The platform is a dream for money laundering. So why go and ruin that.
                If you have less than £10k to realise then that's under the CGT limit so fine crack on.
                Or take £10k a year.
                Or put it somewhere invisible.

                  Yeah if you only put a grand in something ultra speculative, you have to do REALLY well to have CGT problems

                    exactly my point.
                    So why do you need an ISA? ISAs are for safe long term savings not speculative gambling on a bubble.

                    I did OK. I put £600 in in 2013 and cashed out £10k when it got to around $16k per BTC.
                    Yes I wish I'd hodled. But hindsight is always a good gambler.

                      Used to be able to but not any longer....

                      I bought a load of bitcoin and eth pension funds and also opened an ISA.
                      Did very very well out of them. Made about £20K pensions funds and about £1k on the ISA.

                      Can keep it but can't buy any more with H-L.
