Hello, I have read the HMRC Crypto Manual but have 2 questions:
1) In 2021/22, I purchased $100 into Bitcoin (BTC) with Coinbase, and received 10% extra BTC as a bonus.
Is that purchase bonus taxable as miscellaneous income? (I do not trade crypto enough for it to qualify as a trade).
2) Every so often on Coinbase, I view information on and answer a quiz about a new coin and I get about $3 to $4 worth of that new coin. Its a reward for being educated about the coin in the hope I will spread the word/ hold the coin for the long term.
Is that reward taxable as miscellaneous income?
Thank you in advance
