I live in Germany and paid no taxes on my crypto gains in 2017

Just wanted to give a personal update from someone living in Germany. I handed in an overview of all my crypto trades and gains/losses of 2017 (10 pages of trades) to the tax authorities and I recently got back my report. They did not tax any of my gains (I expected to pay a four figure amount, so I don’t think they let it go because it was peanuts). I live in a town of 200k inhabitants (not too small in Germany) and my tax guy said I was the first to come to him with crypto-related stuff (he knows some colleagues, however, who have clients who own crypto and made massive gains). He was surprised as well with the outcome but it seems that I don’t have to pay anything.I’m just wondering if anyone else is in the same situation of the people who reported their gains? I reported them even though I lost most of it again in 2018 because I do not want to get into trouble in the long run and if I make some considerable gains in the future I want to sleep with a clear conscience.
