Giving the miners the status of self-employed and establishing a legal method of exchange of cryptocurrency on the ruble will bring the Russian cryptocurrency economy from the grey zone. This opinion was expressed by the Members of the company “Cryptographers” in his letter to the Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov.
The main advantage of the self-employed status is a tax reduction to 3-5% instead of 13% personal income tax.
“Cryptographers” said that now in Russia more than 350 thousand private miners, however, due to the lack of regulation they do not pay taxes. In this regard, the state loses more than 2 billion rubles annually.
Member of the expert Council on digital economy and blockchain technologies at the state Duma Nikita Kulikov criticized the proposal, as currently in the state Duma are still at the consideration of three bills, and they can be subject to major changes over time.
At the moment, authorities are refining the draft law “On digital of financial assets”, approved may 22. It is expected that all three bills will be ready in the fall.
