Honey Badger was attacked by a pride of 10 lions.
He killed 1 and commenced eating it (without a fork), as the other 9 ran away to tell the story.
Honey Badger cares not about forks.

Honey Badger struts straight up the mountain cuz he know where da honey is.
Lions and cobras see him trotting along his way, but most know not to attack him.
He cares not who sees him going.

I'm not a trader, ( and ), but I try to scoop out a few stackable sats anytime the price drops sharply on a few consecutive hourly candles. Anybody using Strike? @ln_Strike

Bitcoin is rising steeply on the longer term from here I believe. Every satoshi acquired now will be more valuable soon.

But sadly, ThreeD's answer is undoubtedly correct.
I know licensing the Tesla in the new owner's name will require documentation of Sales Tax having been paid. Which forces a USD basis conversion to a dollar value for the transaction. At which point the capital gains in the long held BTC will be taxed yet again and heavily, which discourages both parties from doing the deal.

It doesn't feel right, because it isn't right. But I believe it is the right answer to the OP question.

I like @TallTim's answer b/c it feels right.
The BTC was purchased and paid for with USD that had been honestly earned and saved, and which had already been taxed at least once as income from legal wages. The trade/barter for the car was agreed and entered into by sovereign individuals without malice or fraud. And no conversion of the Bitcoin back into dollars took place. Why should the govt be allowed to tax it again after the fact?

So, this guy is selling a great low-mileage Model 3 on a P2P site, asking 37.5k.
And someone makes him a firm and honest offer of 2 BTC for his clean title.
If they do that deal, what do the IRS and DMV have to say about it?
What do "community" influencers have to say about such transactions generally?

Any significant pullback from $15k will prove a soon enuf.
So FOMO or you WillMO.

1/ Bitcoin is NgU: +5% this week, +30% this month, +92% ytd, and +245% since the worldwide Covid Crash (8 months ago). It is out-performing every other investment in all asset classes including other "cryptos", by a wide margin.

4/ Another parabola is coming soon...

My time preference is somewhat higher than many Bitcoiners because my time horizon is likely shorter than most Bitcoiners.

But I'm mainly stackin' for my children, who are still up on the surface, staring down the rabbit hole looking for their father.

Magic Internet Money...

(This was only a test of the emergency broadcasting system.)

Sent a bech32 transaction from my new BitBox02 (using coin control and custom fees) to my old Ledger Nano, and then sent it all back to a new bech32 UTXO on the Bitbox02.

Completed and confirmed both transactions on-chain in <2 hrs for 6 cents in network fees. But the BTC moved was worth about 10 dollars more by the time it made the round trip.

Unfairly cheap? 🤔 ❤️ 👍 😎

Shitcoiner Tales
I used to know this shitcoiner guy... He had amazing paper profits in Eth but lost most of it holding out for the flippening and proof of stake. Eventually he got impatient, sold all his Ethereum and bought Egregium which soon dumped hard. So he sold that junk at a big loss and bought Linoleum.
Ended up a tycoon in the mobile home flooring business.
