I have sold over $4M+ worth of Bitcoin, how to access the cash and avoid a huge tax bill? (reddit.com)

I am a tech enthusiast and I did some Bitcoin mining on my home computer when one bitcoin was just a fraction of a dollar, mainly as a hobby, not imagining how much Bitcoin would grow. Years later those bitcoins are worth over $ 4million dollars… What is the most tax efficient way to withdraw that money? Any advise? This is giving me much anxiety, any help is much appreciated.

Hackers stole $8,500 worth of bitcoin from me in 15 minutes. Learn from my mistake!

I got into crypto a little over a month ago. I made some great investments that more than doubled my money. It felt great.

This last Sunday it was all taken from me. My Bittrex account got hacked. It was def all my fault. I lost $ 8,500 in the period of about 15 minutes.

Enable 2fa if you haven't already. I didn't do that.

Move your crypto off any exchange if you are not actively using it to trade. I didn't do that.

Make sure you are at Bittrex.com, not Bittrex.me. Phishing sites are a b*tch.

Don't know if I'm supposed to post links in here. Guess I'll give it a go. You can listen to the whole story here: http://successfuldropout.com/hackers-stole-8500-bitcoin-15-minutes-lessons-learned-cryptocurrency/

I sat down to record right after I found out it happened. Be smart guys!

Best of: In 2015, Redditor puts a $10 bitcoin paperwallet into his home’s wall, leaving it for someone in the future to find. “Hopefully they’ll be worth something”. Redditors chip-in an extra $40 into the wallet – today the wallet now contains $895 of Bitcoin. The USD is now worth $9.68.
