Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called on the White House on Monday to ban US citizens from buying bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as the secretary weighed whether to tax them as property or as a currency.
“It’s something the administration’s looking at. We have to understand the new instrument,” Mnuchin said on CNBC.
Mnuchin noted that federal regulations give people the right to buy and sell bitcoin but the administration would have to consider whether to treat it as property.
The statement comes as bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have lost value in recent weeks, with its price halving to around $3,600 on Monday, from about $20,000 in December.
“We’ve got to treat it as property. Otherwise, it’s actually a currency,” Mnuchin said. “We’re in the early stages of understanding that. We have to understand what it is.”
The White House also said in a press release Monday that the Treasury Department had begun the process of examining the tax implications of cryptocurrencies.
“We are examining the issue of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin that are being treated as a commodity rather than as a currency for tax purposes,” the press release stated.
According to the press release, “Treasury is examining the possibility that in the future virtual currencies may be treated as property, and as such, may be subject to U.S. capital gains tax.”
The regulations in place now say that cryptocurrency users have to file capital gains tax on any activity that increases in value.
The press release does not mention whether the Treasury Secretary is considering changing those regulations to consider other options.
Still, some conservatives aren’t buying it.
“I find it bizarre that this administration is so gung-ho for this. It’s unworkable,” Randy Altschuler, professor of economic history at the University of Richmond, told the Guardian.
Like many bitcoin users, Altschuler sees the currency as a useful way to move money out of countries where government takeovers have ravaged the local economy.
“The idea that a country would literally outlaw a currency because it’s raising an eyebrow and there are legitimate reasons for the currency to get so hot. That is a little silly,” he said.
Altschuler also noted that he doesn�
N,N′-Cyanamide-Based Photoluminescent Probes for Localized and Selective Detection of Amino Acids in Mice.
β-Lactams and their derivatives have attracted increasing attention due to their physiological and medicinal significance. In this work, a series of β-lactam based cyanamide photoluminescence probes, (R-PNCY) (R = trifluoromethyl, 1; -2,2,2-trifluoroethyl, 3; -2-bromoethyl, 4), for the determination of amino acids in mice are reported. PNCYs can produce cyanamide under UV irradiation in the presence of NH4Cl, which is accompanied with the detection of amino acids. Moreover, (3)PNCY can detect Tyr and Trp selectively in aqueous mice brain homogenate. In addition, the probe 3 can detect some other amino acids in brain tissue. The local penetration depth and the appropriate design of the probe will provide a powerful platform for amino acid detection in the living system.Q:
Do post-japanese-postmodernist languages have a word for pretending to speak a language that you don’t know?
I just woke up this morning and found myself unable to say anything in Japanese, and also unable to “act Japanese”.
I know that I know… We’re both in the same room together, if we don’t speak in Japanese, I’m not pretending to be Japanese, I simply can’t speak at all.
I was wondering what words there are in other languages that express this. I know that I couldn’t think of the right word, but maybe someone else might have.
I also found that some of the marks used to represent phonetic input may have a similar concept, like the “*ch” in Kanji, “*d” in Hanja and Hanzi, “ŋ” in IPA, and “ph” in General American, but again, I don’t have any more information than that.
Any help is appreciated.
I don’t think the word exists in any language. I think most people would use something like that in their “native language”.
Our language has a “profession-ish” sort of prestige word:
IMHO, that word is hard to Google for.
