Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and other competitors experienced record-breaking growth in recent years, leaving many investors and their accountants uncertain about the overall state of the taxes involved, which lead to a big misconception around the tax bills and which transactions are taxed to begin with.
As a post-doc at ESiLV engineering school, Gabriel Lhéricy who is also a member of De Vinci Research Center, has been working on the “Moneytrack” partnership research project around cryptocurrencies. The work was done in collaboration with Cyril Grunspan (ESiLV, De Vinci Research Center) and Ricardo Pérez-Marco (CNRS, IMJ-PRG).
