Here Comes the Government— VAULT Cryptocurrency Blockchain News #18
If you live in the United States then you have been hearing rumors this week that the Congress and Senate are looking at legislation to tax cryptocurrencies. These reports intensified as the Senate began voting on the 2,000-page document known as the Infrastructure Bill. This bill will provide nearly $1 trillion to update the Unites States’ roads, highways, and infrastructure.
The problem with this bill is that hidden inside is a new revised tax reporting requirement for cryptocurrency transactions. This requirement states that any broker must report transactions to the IRS as securities brokers are required to do for stock and bond trading.The language of the bill describes a broker as a person or company who regularly provides a service that executes transfers of digital assets on behalf of another person.
Many senators have objected to the bill. Several amendments are being proposed to clarify and further define who would qualify as a broker.
Senator Pat Toomey issued a press release through the Senate Banking Committee, calling the current language “unworkable” and said, “ by including an overly broad definition of a broker, the current provision sweeps in non-financial intermediaries like miners, network validators, and other service providers.”
In the worst-case scenario, there is a risk of innovation going overseas. Many cryptocurrency miners that recently moved to areas like Austin, Texas, will likely leave for other countries as they will not be able to comply with the requirements, and legal battles to get the courts to clarify intent formally could take years.
This legislation would not only require companies to hire lawyers to weigh the risk/reward of staying in the US, but may also put the average American at risk by their participation in cryptocurrency networks.
Many big names in crypto are calling their Twitter followers to contact their senators and congressmen to voice their concerns on this bill.
If this concerns you, then contact your representatives and let them know your thoughts.

Bitcoin (BTC) Update
Bitcoin has seen good growth this week. Many have said it is riding on the coattails of Ethereum, which saw massive growth after the release of its much anticipated London hard fork that introduced a fee burning mechanism.
The hard fork unfortunately did not do much to help with gas fees. If you want to swap an ERC-20 token on Uniswap today, you can expect to pay about $27 in gas fees. It has been over $200 in the last 24 hours. You can check the current gas fees here.
Ethereum is very popular but it is getting ridiculously expensive to trade on.
There is quite a bit of controversy on where Bitcoin is going to go from here. One group says that we are hitting the bull run and price will be over $100,000 by the end of the year.
One thing I have noticed over the years is that when price is going up and everybody is saying we are headed to $100,000 then that is where we see the price dump. Will this happen again? This is commonly known as a bull trap. It has ruined the fortunes of many a leverage trader.
The other side is calling for Bitcoin to hit a major downturn and possibly hit $10,000 by the end of the year.
The thing to remember about price predictions is that the people who are making them have their own biases and motivations. Will Bitcoin’s price go up over time? History has proven that it will. Will other coins like Ethereum go up at a faster pace than Bitcoin and provide better returns? Do your own research and really look closely at any projects you might be considering.
Projects that provide returns on your crypto investments provide a distinct advantage over traditional crypto and fiat investments. When you purchase VAULT coin, you can earn shared masternode rewards plus up to 25% APR on Bitcoin, which is currently up 269.2% this year. This allows you to maximize your returns for potentially massive gains.

VAULT Crypto Portfolio Tracker
I wanted to give you a running tally of what you could potentially be earning with VAULT. The example I’m using is holding 1 CRYO VAULT masternode (CRYO VAULT available here) with 0.1 BTC invested in the BTC% program (check it out here).
I wanted to show you what kind of returns you could be earning weekly and cumulatively.
One VAULT masternode of 1,000 VAULT with current ~26% ROI generated 4.98 VAULT blockchain rewards this week for a total of 99.28 VAULT over the past 19 weeks. Total is now 1,099.28 VAULT. The total dollar value earned was $475.55 at VAULT’s current price of $4.79. The total BTC value at VAULT’s current price (0.00011011 BTC) is 0.0122187.
Investing 0.1 BTC in the BTC% program earns you 11% APR, giving you a weekly return of 0.00021089 BTC. Over the last 19 weeks, this would be worth 0.00400 BTC or $174.54.
The total value of your potential returns over the past 18 weeks would be $705.85 or 0.01621872 BTC.
