I know short term capital gains applies to any profits made from taxable events like selling or exchanging crypto. If I only sell my cost basis on a crypto investment, thus not taking profits out, will I still have to pay taxes? For example if I bought $1000 worth of BTC 11 months ago and now it’s worth $2000, then I sell $1000 worth of BTC while keeping the $1000 profit in a wallet, would I have to pay capital gains on the $1000 profit still?
