First time investor and trying to do tax filing. If you bought the same coin or stock at 100 and then next day at 200 (cost basis 150 per share/coin is), and your investment goes up to 600, (300 per share/coin) and you sell only one share/coin and receive 300, does that still create taxable event or is it considered just taking out your principal investment amount until you sell more than 300? Also is transferring coin from one wallet to another a taxable event or considered selling/buying?
