Cryptocurrency holders in India will soon be subject to a 30% tax, while Thailand goes back into discussions regarding its 15% tax plan. In a positive development for cryptocurrency holders in India, Nirmala Sitaraman announced that 30% of virtual digital assets known as cryptocurrencies will be imposed in her 2022-23 budget.
The minister also made it very clear that no deduction in respect of any expenditure or allowance is to be allowed while computing such income except the cost of acquisition. Loss from the transfer of virtual digital assets cannot be set off against any other income.
In the meantime, Thailand backs down and scraps the plan to tax crypto transactions by 15%. After facing pushback from the crypto industry, the Thai Revenue Department has published a manual outlining the new tax rules applicable to cryptocurrencies and digital tokens.
According to tax officials, income from crypto could be reported as capital gains and added that the new rules will allow traders to offset their annual losses against gains made in the same year.
In another part of the world, Botswana is one step ahead of crypto regulations. A number of African countries have recently decided to not only encourage the development and application of blockchain technology but also to integrate it into central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), a move that Nigeria pioneered and which South Africa is now considering.
Amidst these moves, the government of Botswana has taken the bull by the horns and formally introduced to parliament a government gazette that will regulate the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors.
Even though this is not yet a law, it would be subject to deliberation by parliamentarians. If this proposal is approved, Botswana would become the first African nation to regulate crypto.
Reports show that Bitcoin Mining is responsible for only 0.8% of the world’s CO2 emissions. In its report, Coinshares, a cryptocurrency firm, shows that the arguments against bitcoin mining through its Proof-of-Work system and the electrical consumption associated with it are exaggerated. According to the report, Bitcoin’s mining infrastructure produces 0.08% of the world’s carbon dioxide (CO2) today.
Despite the fact that bitcoin mining contributes to current emissions, Coinshares emphasized that these emissions are not only insignificant on a global scale, but in no way necessary. Bitcoin will become 100% renewable as soon as all of our energy comes from renewable sources. Instead of stifling the development of monetary technology, we should focus on expanding renewable energy.
