Abstract

Cryptocurrency is a digital form of currency that uses mathematical equations to encrypt data. This type of currency has significantly grown in popularity over the past 5 years due to more people and companies using it. Some companies have started accepting it as payment in exchange for goods and services. More people are going to be turning to cryptocurrency in the future. Businesses will have to come up with ways to deal with cryptocurrency; however, the FASB has yet to define cryptocurrency, leaving businesses with no formal guidance on the subject. The purpose of this paper is to recommend a solution on how companies should report cryptocurrency in the future.
