Bonus, in bitcoin

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Finance (Not Investing) - www.bogleheads.org
Spouse is receiving a bonus paid in units of a cryptocurrency. Company "may" be paying the taxes on the bonus. What are the questions I need to get answered, as the finance person in the house?

I am already asking: How are they reporting the bonus to IRS -- W2? In units of dollars (would have to be)?

I know we need to figure out how to track the basis -- what is acceptable as a record? We anticipate trading much of this currency for US dollars. Then the gateway that does the trade reports a sale, and we need to report gain/loss, just as if for stocks/funds? I assume the gateway won't be issuing a 1099b.

This is a bit confusing to me, so any pointers towards what I should be asking so that I can correctly deal with our taxes on the bonus and the eventual sale of the currency, are appreciated. I am well aware that cryptocurrencies are smelling like tulips right about now.
