Most cryptocurrencies are designed to gradually decrease production of that currency, placing a cap on the total amount of that currency that will ever be in circulation.

This difficulty is derived from leveraging cryptographic technologies.

Businesses that deal with bitcoin currency exchanges will be taxed based on their bitcoin sales.
