Can stock losses offset crypto gains?

Thinking of selling losses in stock.

I know they should be same asset class. Don't know if crypto is an exception by any means.

      I sold my crypto portfolio last week, all was gain as I sold my initial investment at bitcoin 14k. Not a lot of profit though. Should have sold much sooner sigh

      You lucky dawg. I am stuck with heavy bags and have written the whole thing off as a loss (in my head). Never again!

    Yes. Crypto gain will be taxed same as stocks, so you can offset short gain vs short loss and the same for long.

      There is no short or long term loss. There’s just loss.
