Crypto Market News: Stakeholders in the crypto market now have a chance to express their views on the gray areas of crypto asset related taxation, thanks to a new window of policy inputs sought by the US Senate Finance Committee. On Tuesday, the committee initiated an effort to address uncertainties surrounding the tax treatment of digital assets seeking input from experts, stakeholders and interested parties. This is a welcome move from the committee, which is in sharp contrast to the hostile environment created by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Deadline To Submit Inputs On Crypto Taxation
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden and Finance Committee Ranking Member Mike Crapo have invited members of the crypto community and other stakeholders to help them better understand how Congress can address the tax challenges. The committee has admitted that the growth of crypto market created new regulatory issues like the challenge of monitoring it based on the existing federal tax laws. Further, the committee is seeking detailed responses on issues like crypto loans, staking and mining. A question on staking said,
