All US citizens and US residents are subject to a worldwide income tax. Any currency — fiat or crypto — earned anywhere in the world is taxable. For example buying a product/service using cryptocurrency that has appreciated in value is taxable, as is realizing a capital gain on a foreign crypto-exchange.

In addition, states have their own additional tax regulations around cryptocurrency which may be in addition to whatever regulations apply.
