Crypto experts to gather in Minsk on February 27 at Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Belarus
On February 27, Minsk will host the first Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Belarus, the event dedicated to blockchain, cryptocurrencies and ICO.
On December 22, 2017, the President of the country signed the Decree on the development of the digital economy. The document outlines actions aimed at cryptocurrency and blockchain development. The relevant changes in the legislation should be prepared by the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus within three months.
For example, cryptocurrency transactions will be subject to tax charges, but they have benefits as well. Carrying out ICO will be possible through the residents of the Belarus High Technologies Park. At the same time, legal entities are entitled to perform operations on digital assets only through cryptocurrency exchanges and specialized operators. The activity of the exchanges will be monitored by the National Bank.
Individuals will have the right to buy, exchange, alienate, donate and bequeath tokens and cryptocurrencies. Mining will also turn out to be completely legal. Moreover, all listed actions won’t be recognized as entrepreneurial activity, and consequently won’t be taxed.
