By the IRS's own definition, HIVE power or STEEM power etc are not taxable income. The definition for paying taxes on a virtual currency are to pay the dollar value of the currency when received, but also by definition, HP/SP/etc. have/has no dollar value and are not traded on any exchange. Once they are powered down they are 'converted' into something that has a dollar value and can be traded on an exchange. Therefore based on my understanding HP/SP is not taxable income.
