👉 Last HODLing Bitcoin Miner Forced To Abandon Strategy

Hut 8 Mining, the last publicly-listed bitcoin miner attempting a 100% “HODL” strategy since the bull market, has failed to do so thanks to crypto-winter.

The company sold 188 bitcoins in February to fund operations, indicating that miners are finding it difficult to raise funds for operations amid a slide in the broader financial market and narrowing margins.

Holding onto a reserve of bitcoin that miners produce can be very expensive and the prolonged bear market resulted in the bankruptcies of some large-scale miners.

👉 UK Taxpayers Must Separately Report Crypto Profits From 2025

UK taxpayers will have to declare profits from cryptocurrency separately on their tax returns for the first time, according to a statement released by the government.

The changes will come into effect from the 2024-25 tax year, affecting returns filed from 2025. The UK government estimates that the change will generate £10 million ($12 million) per year from the 2025-26 fiscal year.

Only higher earners, the self-employed, those with complex tax affairs or those who need to declare investment income tend to need to complete forms.

👉 US DoJ Appeals Protections In Voyager Sale To Binance.US

US officials have filed a motion to remove a provision included in Voyager Digital’s bankruptcy plan that would prevent them from legally pursuing anyone involved with the sale of digital assets to Binance.US.

The provision protects those involved in carrying out the sale from being held personally liable for its implementation. US officials argue that the provision would impede the government’s ability to enforce its police and regulatory powers.

A hearing on the issue is set to occur on March 15, and the plan is expected to result in Voyager creditors recovering approximately 73% of the value of their funds.
