Blockchains based on Proof of Stake can be used to generate new coins by participating in the Proof of Stake consensus finding algorithm – similar to Mining for Proof of Work based blockchains. If deposits are earnings from staking, classify them as staking. The certified Cryptotax software shows these coins in the report as other income.
Tip: If there are a lot of small payments, it can quickly become time-consuming to classify all payments individually. Using the manual data import, you can pre-classify the data in Excel and thus save time.
Note: This classification only covers staking revenues that have been staked within the framework of “private staking”. Some Tax authorities distinguish between commercial and private staking. Private staking means first attempts without large investments, but the boundary to commercialism is quickly crossed. Since often no clear guidelines are published, we strongly advise you to get tax advisory. An individual consultation by a specialized tax consultant or lawyer is available on request by e-mail to [email protected] or via the Premium Service in the Cryptotax web application.
