This will work positively in the development and growth of the crypto-industry in the entire Russia.
The Prime Minister’s proposal exerts on the importance of having a civilized crypto-asset industry. In this civilized crypto-asset industry, every investor and dealer will be well aware of their interests and rights. Everyone will know the liabilities of failing to adhere to the regulations and requirements.
Doing this will grant crypto-assets mainstream recognition all across the country. More investors will start shifting towards this platform and this will add significant value to the country’s economic growth.
On top of that, there will be certain aspects present to ensure that all rights and interests are legit and authentic. The system will be stable and will discourage the creation of any shady or Ponzi schemes in the local crypto-markets.
The Russian Prime Minister also had more to add to the proposal for the cryptocurrencies. He proposed making necessary amendments to the Tax Code in the Russian laws. He requested to make Tax Code amendments to accommodate the crypto-assets. He proposed that doing so will grant crypto-assets such as Bitcoin (BTC) a position as property in the Russian law.
