In Russia, they proposed to introduce a tax on mining and cryptocurrency trading

The Association of Banks of Russia (ADB) published a report in which it proposes to tax the extraction of cryptocurrencies and any transactions with their participation. In this case, mining is proposed to be equated to the discovery of treasure.

“Using legal fiction, it could be argued that the first owner of the crypto assets“ found them ”, since receiving from an anonymous system can be conditionally considered a find,” the document says, “Concepts of the turnover of decentralized cryptocurrencies.”

Of course, you can’t just equate cryptocurrency mining to treasure discovery, but you can introduce the concept of “newly created”, that is, independently produced by a citizen. In this case, transactions with cryptocurrencies can also be taxed.

According to the author of the report, ADB Vice President Anatoly Kozlachkov, mining fits perfectly the concept of “newly created assets”. It is reported that the document will be discussed at the ADB site on October 8, and then the proposal can be sent to the Russian government.
