If you traded, sold, or used any of your cryptocurrency to purchase something, then you may need to pay tax on these assets. If you were gifted or given cryptocurrency as payment, salary, or as a gift/donation, then this income should be reported just like any other income you receive.
If you are just buying cryptocurrency with your own money and storing it (no selling/trading/using it), then you likely do not need to pay tax on it. #HODL
