Company «CryptoUniverse», which is part of RACIB, turned to First Deputy Prime Minister Anton Siluanov with a proposal to assign the status of self-employed to miners and reduce their personal income tax from 13% to 3–five%, informs «Kommersant». However, for this, it is necessary to determine the status of virtual currencies..
RACIB President Yuri Pripachkin says that leaving the shadow sector is necessary for further development and attracting investments in this area. In addition to tax privileges, participants are encouraged to create a legal way to convert virtual currency into rubles. The initiators believe that this will increase the level of state control, make the income of miners legal and increase budget revenues..
Specialists «CryptoUniverse» they say that now in the Russian Federation there are at least 350 thousand individuals engaged in the extraction of cryptocurrency.
Due to the lack of legal conversion schemes, participants are forced to use shadow schemes, which daily results in the government losing about 2 billion rubles of potential tax revenues. According to RACIB, the utilization of free capacities of energy companies will be able to bring the economy up to 1.7 trillion rubles of income annually. However, until the laws governing cryptoeconomics are passed, any proposals cannot be promoted..
While Russia is trying to create favorable conditions for the work of miners, the affected depositors of Mt. Gox prepares to receive $ 1 billion in compensation.
