About the FASB Crypto Accounting Guidance

On September 6th, 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the  organization that sets authoritative accounting guidance for US GAAP, voted to move forward with updated crypto asset accounting rules to increase transparency for crypto asset activity. Companies need to understand everything required for updated accounting compliance from an accounting and reporting perspective. 

To be within the scope of this new accounting guidance, a crypto asset must:

  • Meet the definition of an intangible asset

  • Not represent a contract or provide enforceable rights

  • Be created or reside on a distributed ledger based on blockchain or similar technology

  • Be secured through cryptography

  • Be fungible

  • Not be created or issued by the reporting entity or its related parties
