Crypto currency purchased via ICO

In mid 2017 I purchased Bitcoin in order to participate in the Tezos ICO. 

So far the ICO has not delivered any Tezos coins, and it's uncertian when the Tezos foundation will deliver. 

Q1: If Tezos do not deliver can I claim the Bitcoin contribution as a loss to offset other crypto currency gains?

Q2: I may need to calculate capital gains on all my crypto currency when I stop being an Australian resident for tax purposes. How would I calculate capital gains on Tezos coins that have not been delivered?
