Coinbase conversion of Ethereum to ETH2 when staking

Is Coinbase’s conversion of my staked ethereum a taxable event? If so why didn’t they explicitly state that the Conversion would generate a capital gains tax event? They only stated that your earning would be taxed. Anyone know the answer?

Thank you, I’ve read that and it does sort of put my mind at ease, but my accountant says it will all depend on what Coinbase sends to the IRS. Coinbase never responds to my questions, but from what I can tell, they will only send the 1099-Misc to the IRS so there should not be any mention of a conversion. I still won’t know for sure until Coinbase sends me the 1099 info.
