Deputy Minister of Finance of Ukraine Sergey Varlamov in an interview, spoke in favor of taxes for individuals on income from cryptocurrency.
According to him, bitcoin resembles tanks from the game World of Tanks. And since the first cryptocurrency in Ukraine there is a specific legal status, it was quite possible to equate to intangible assets:
“While digital coins no legal status — it is a common subject of treatment. According to the Civil code of Ukraine is the subject of the intangible world. My favorite comparison is like a tank in World of Tanks. We bought the tank for 100 hryvnia, rocked it, and sold for two thousand hryvnias”.
Sergey Varlamov believes that regulation of the cryptocurrency market should be dealt with either the national Bank or the national Commission on securities and stock market.
