Approved Tax Bill Grants a Definition of Cryptocurrencies

According to CBA4N, the “Tax Law 2021†approved by the legislature seeks to tax people 4% to 6.5% on gross incomes from crypto-related transactions. Also, individuals or businesses who receive payments in cryptocurrencies “in exchange for goods or services†will be subject to a rate of 0.25%.
