While Crypto.com offers a variety of financial and cryptocurrency services, there are a few restrictions. Although it's a regulated platform and Crypto.com offers decentralized features, it isn't intended for all users. Cypto.com does have geographic restrictions on some of its services since the overall application is centralized. Keeping this in mind, the U.S. crypto exchange isn't available to all U.S. residents.

All buy, sell, and exchange activities performed on the platform are subject to be reported, especially if the gross proceeds from the transactions meet or exceed a users' respective state’s threshold. The threshold for most states is $20,000 along with 200 transactions set by the IRS. If users exceed this threshold, they should expect to receive a 1099-K form in the mail on or before Jan. 31. It's a good idea to seek out a tax adviser or utilize Crypto.com's free crypto tax service. Users have to determine which elements of their gross volume are taxable.
