    Why put it in an ISA when you can wrap it and get 15% staking on Beefy?

    A grand put in the day Trump took office would be £50,000 today.
    Slightly higher in fact.

    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.
    How in the name of all that is holy is an immutable distributed ledger a dream for money laundering?

    It's awful for money laundering.

    You'd know that if you tried to find out what it is.

    Only in the short term. Bitcoin moves in 4 year, pre-programmed, very predictable cycles.

    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.

    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.

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

    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

    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.

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