    Summary: The legal status of bitcoin vary from country to country.

    As of February 2020, Bitcoin was legal in the U.S., Japan, the U.K., Canada, and most other developed countries. For tax purposes, bitcoins are usually treated as property rather than currency. Bitcoin is generally not considered legal tender.

    In the U.S., the IRS has taken an increasing interest in Bitcoin and issued guidelines for taxpayers.
    Bitcoin has serious flaws for those seeking anonymity, so illegal activity is moving to other cryptocurrencies.
