According to Decrypt, there are speculations about introducing a new bitcoin (BTC, -2.72%) law into Paraguay’s legislature tomorrow. The bill will require registered cryptocurrencies under the country’s Undersecretariat of State Taxation.
The Leaked Bill
A rough translation of the proposed document aims to provide legal certainty, financial and fiscal security. All these to firms arising from virtual assets processing and distribution. Decrypt stated it was a leaked bill without telling how it got it.
The measure would likewise control both crypto-mining and trading through trade and peer-to-peer markets. As stated in Decrypt’s study, it is an obligation to register as subjects.
The document states:
“It is important that companies can register these products within their accounting so that they can have their real valuation. Additionally, it helps optimize the tax collection of this industry, finally giving traceability of what is produced in the country facilitating its tracking by supervisory authorities.”
Crypto Mining, An Industrial Activity
The rationale of the Bill stipulates specifically that crypto mining, via its use of money, labour, machinery and the development of civil infrastructure, should get recognition as an industrial activity under the remit of the Minister of Industry and Trade.
Proposing the Bill
Congressman Carlos Rajala, who plans to propose the Bill, stated last month that the measure would allow crypto mining firms or exchange companies to fund digital assets and send dividends outside Paraguay and capitalize on the gains in local banking.
