I've recently bought 0.1 BTC on binance and sent it to another wallet for an investment. Say it turns out well and I get back 0.3 BTC after some months on my binance wallet(as an example amount, I know this is not possible lol) Would I have to pay taxes on that 0.2btc profit if I don't exchange it back to £? If so, what exchange rate should I use? Any specific tips for the UK? Sorry if any of this sounds stupid, I'm really new to crypto investments/taxation.

Seasoned HODLer here with a question. I’m expecting a big bonus in mid 2021 and I looked into call options for mid 2021 or end 2021 because I’m bullish. I signed up for an account on LedgerX but I’m unfamiliar with how bitcoin options are treated by the IRS. Let’s say I exercise an option at expiry and I decide to transfer the ownership of the bitcoin to an address, is that a taxable event? Scenario: I pay a $1500 premium for the option to buy 100 mini contracts at .01 btc each at a strikeprice of $50,000 with an expiry of December 31, 2021. Now let’s suppose S2F is right and bitcoin reaches $100,000 at expiry. I would then have a gain of $100,000 - $50,000 - $1,500 = $48,500. LedgerX would then give me the option to transfer ownership of the bitcoin once I fund my account. If just send that bitcoin to an address after funding the account for $50,000 is that event taxable? I get it’s taxable if I sell it. BUT is it taxable if I hodl?
Hi everyone, I have a quick question that I am hoping someone can answer. In March of 2020 I invested in bitcoin through Robinhood. For obvious reasons, I want to sell that investment so that I can purchase actual bitcoin through another method. Would I still have to pay the short term capital gains tax on this transaction if I reinvest every dollar back into bitcoin?
