Tezos (XTZ) crossed past a major price resistance level.  The token has set the stage for a major bull run. There was a psychological barrier at $2; however, the token has broken past it, and the price is trending at 2.07%.  Tezos has shown a price rise of 475% in 2019.

There are several other Proof of Stakes (PoS) coins in the cryptocurrency market, and not all of them have achieved a similar growth.  PoS is based on a consensus algorithm where the network achieves using distributed consensus. The creator of the next block will be able to create a block based on the numbers of XTZ he or she holds.  The mining power is equal to the numbers of tokens the miner holds.

Tezos Market Cap Growing

While the market cap of Tezos is growing, whether the adoption factor is happening is one thing to think about. There is not too much adoption. With PoS, the staking rewards are taxable.  Staking income, according to Forbes, resemble the interest income.  However, both of them are not the same.  For tax purposes, both of them are not treated the same either.

Personal property refers to a property that is not real property. Virtual currencies by Notice 2014-21 are treated as property. Therefore, almost every kind of rule applicable to property applies to virtual currencies.

The income that is obtained from renting cannot be considered as interest income. With this being the case, staking rewards become rental income and come under the passive or non-passive income category.  It all depends upon the level of participation in the ecosystem. Reporting staking income is crucial per the IRS.

Thus, those who are holding Tezos (XTZ) should show staking income consistently. Forbes recommends checking yes for the Crypto Question in Schedule 1.
