According to the study carried out by TaxCripto among its users, the sharp falls in cryptocurrencies in 2022 caused many of the investors in these assets to declare income losses for 2022.

On June 30, the deadline for filing the Income statement for the year 2022 ended. This Income statement included important new features in the model to be filed in the field of cryptocurrencies. Specifically, a whole new section of specific boxes was included to declare the profits and losses generated with this type of asset. However, the poor evolution of cryptocurrencies in 2022 in what has been called "crypto winter" has caused many of the investors in these assets to declare significant losses in 2022. Specifically, according to TaxCripto estimates, more 70% of investors declared losses in cryptocurrencies during the year 2022. The balances in cryptocurrencies at the end of the 2022 financial year still accumulated losses close to 70%, which indicates that many investors who keep these assets in their portfolios did not materialize losses. Investors in futures and derivatives in cryptocurrencies do not escape losses either. In this case, 91% of the traders in these risk assets declared losses during the year 2022. Alberto Miranda, founder, CFO and tax advisor of TaxCripto, affirms that "after the bad behavior of the crypto market in 2022, it seemed logical to raise fiscally, the materialization of losses and their compensation with gains in other assets". Indeed, it is necessary to carry out tax planning before the end of the financial year to analyze the possibility of converting latent losses into real losses that can be offset with the profits obtained during the year from other operations.Binance, the absolute leader in the Spanish investment market in cryptoactives The report prepared by TaxCripto also analyzes the platforms most used by Spanish investors in cryptoactives.
