SARS have issued guidance stating bitcoin is to be treated as a normal share trade. So, if you're trading it for revenue purposes then the gains and losses will be treated as a revenue transaction and taxed similar to a salary. If you hold it for investment purposes then this would be treated as if it were a normal capital gain on sale.
