A Agência Tributária sul-coreana identifica mais de 2.400 Evaders que usaram moedas criptográficas para contornar a tributação

As autoridades sul-coreanas parecem estar se concentrando no fortalecimento de medidas para combater a evasão fiscal em todo o país. O cão de guarda fiscal do país perfilou milhares de evasores que contavam com moedas criptográficas para esconder ativos no valor de bilhões de coreanos ganhos.

Evaders ocultaram um total de $32,24 milhões em ativos

Pelo Korea Herald, o Serviço Nacional de Impostos da Coréia do Sul (NTS) identificou 2.416 indivíduos que alegadamente escondiam seus ativos em criptografias para contornar a tributação. A agência afirmou que os evasores usavam bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), ripple (XRP), entre outras criptos, para evitar serem examinados pelas autoridades fiscais.

De acordo com as autoridades, os ativos envolvidos na evasão fiscal representam um total de 36,6 bilhões de won (US$ 32,24 milhões). Além disso, o NTS esclareceu que eles visavam principalmente pessoas com mais de 10 milhões ganhos (US$ 8.800) em impostos.

Ainda assim, as autoridades fiscais conseguiram recuperar ativos ocultos em dinheiro e títulos. Ao mesmo tempo, lançaram uma investigação contra 222 daqueles que supostamente evadiram o pagamento de impostos. A agência emitiu a seguinte declaração:

A recente investigação foi parte de nossos esforços contínuos para fortalecer uma repressão à evasão fiscal anti-social. Vamos capturar casos altamente intelectualizados (evasão fiscal) e resgatar rapidamente suas propriedades ocultas.

Trocas de Criptografia Domésticas Colaboramos com a NTS

A NTS declarou que confiava em trocas criptográficas domésticas para coletar dados pessoais dos supostos evasores fiscais. Isso incluiu os relatórios comerciais e informações bancárias das pessoas físicas, que estão em total conformidade com os regulamentos rigorosos que atualmente regem a esfera criptográfica na Coréia do Sul.

De acordo com a lei, as bolsas de criptografia sul-coreanas devem utilizar o sistema de nomes reais, fazendo parceria com uma instituição financeira para prestar este serviço.

Os bancos serão obrigados a realizar a devida diligência nos negócios criptográficos com os quais lidam, assegurando a devida comunicação à Unidade de Inteligência Financeira da Coréia (KOFIU).

O Newsdesk da Bitcoin.com relatou que o governo sul-coreano emitiu uma emenda para introduzir um imposto de 20% sobre os lucros comerciais em moeda criptográfica.

Embora tenha sido promulgada em fevereiro, a legislação esclareceu no início deste ano que a nova regra começará a ser aplicada em 2022.

Switzerland: new blockchain law comes into force this week

Switzerland: New blockchain law comes into force this week

Switzerland passed a new blockchain law in record time last year. It will be implemented in two phases, the first of which started on 1 February.

On Monday, the first part of Switzerland’s blockchain law on corporate reform came into force. It was only in September 2020 that the Alpine country’s parliament passed an expanded regulatory framework for domestic crypto and blockchain technology. A move that has already met with much praise from industry representatives.

According to a report by Swissinfo, the implementation of the new regulatory law, which took place in absolute record time, will further help improve Switzerland’s burgeoning crypto and blockchain scene. The process is divided into two phases. Company law reforms already apply from 1 February. Improvements to the financial market infrastructure will then be effective from the beginning of August. According to Bitcoin Machine market observers, this will open the doors to a fully regulated cryptocurrency and digital securities industry in Switzerland. The goal is to let all participants know where they stand and to fully inform them about the risks.

With these new registered rights, it is clear that you have legal certainty. If they are properly transferred on the blockchain, the new owner who holds them in his wallet is definitely the owner of these rights.

Coindesk quotes Alexander Vogel, partner at the Swiss law firm Meyerlustenberger Lachenal (MLL). Of course, those responsible are hoping for new advantages for the financial markets. These are supposed to consist of faster trading, lower costs and a broader product range.

Several banks take advantage of new legislation immediately

Three companies (the banks SEBA and Sygnum as well as Crypto Finance) have already made announcements on 1 February that are directly related to the new legislation. Crypto Finance has been granted a securities house licence for its crypto brokerage division by the Swiss financial regulator FINMA. The crypto service provider, which handled over CHF 1 billion in trades last year, can now offer its clients trading in a new type of digital securities. These include company shares and potentially alternative assets such as tokenised real estate, luxury goods and collectibles.

The first reaction from SEBA and Sygnum, the banks that received a FINMA licence in 2019, was also not long in coming. Both also immediately announced their first digital assets. Sygnum has tokenised a number of Fine Wine Capital’s premium wines on its Desygnate platform, which was launched last year. A number of other companies are ready to issue digital assets through the bank, including real estate and shares in an electric car manufacturer.

Elon Musk: Bitcoin on the verge of widespread acceptance by finance

Bitcoin is on the verge of reaching wider adoption in the traditional financial world, according to Elon Musk.

Bitcoin ( BTC ) is on the verge of gaining broader adoption, according to Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, in a clubhouse conversation on Feb.1.

Clubhouse is an exclusive audio chat app and social media platform that is only available to guests who have received an invitation. Members can participate in a variety of conversations, similar to an online private conference.

Elon Musk speaks publicly about Bitcoin

Speaking to Andressen Horowitz and other prominent investors, Musk was asked about his opinion on Bitcoin.

On January 29th, Musk wrote the word „bitcoin“ on his Twitter bio. That made the BTC rate rise by more than 14 percent within 30 minutes .

After the incident, Bitcoin investors and enthusiasts were eager to hear positive comments from Musk about crypto in general.

When asked about Bitcoin , Musk said, according to industry officials who overheard the chat:

„I think bitcoin is a good thing. I am a proponent of bitcoin. I think bitcoin is on the verge of widespread adoption in conventional finance.“

Industry executives were generally positive about Musk’s comment on Bitcoin. James Todar, a partner at Greymatter Capital, said :

„One of the most progressive inventors of our time missed Bitcoin. On Clubhouse @elonmusk was talking about a friend who gave him a cake in the form of a bitcoin in 2013. Although he is ‚late‘, Elon believes that Bitcoin is about to be to be accepted in finance. “

Dan Tapiero, a partner at 10T Holdings, made a similar statement. He said the fact that the richest man in the world is a bitcoin backer „feels good“. Tapiero wrote :

„Somehow it feels good that @elonmusk, a #bitcoin supporter my age, is the richest man in the world. I was fed up with Gates / Buffett / Bezos. Older guys from old tech or no tech and none Bitcoiner. With an iconoclast and a visionary as a role model, there may be hope for Generation Z. „

As Cointelegraph reported , prominent Bitcoin investors like billionaire Tim Draper Musk and his companies like Tesla have asked to accept BTC directly. That would give Bitcoin a massive boost in terms of global awareness.

La prime Bitcoin sur les échanges coréens est de retour

La hausse de Bitcoin au cours des dernières semaines a ramené la „prime Kimchi“, un soi-disant phénomène de hausse des prix sur les bourses coréennes.

En bref

  • La „prime Kimchi“ est de retour, ce qui laisse penser que le sentiment pour Bitcoin augmente en Corée.
  • Le contrôle strict des capitaux en Corée rend difficile la fermeture rapide de la prime élevée.
  • Toutefois, les négociants suggèrent que la prime pourrait entraîner une hausse des prix du bitcoin à l’avenir.

La hausse quasi verticale de Bitcoin à plus de 35 000 dollars au cours des dernières semaines a ramené la „prime Kimchi“, comme l’ont montré les données du fournisseur d’analyses sur la chaîne CryptoQuant.

La prime de Kimchi, qui porte le nom d’un plat populaire en Corée, fait référence à la hausse des prix des cryptocurrences, en particulier des grandes capitalisations comme Bitcoin, sur les bourses coréennes en période de forte volatilité. Ces mouvements ont été très importants au début de 2018, lorsque la prime a grimpé de 54 %.

La prime fluctue généralement de 1 % en moyenne. Toutefois, lundi, elle a augmenté à 5,5%, et la tendance s’est poursuivie mardi matin.

Ce mouvement suggère un intérêt accru pour le commerce de la cryptographie en Corée, a noté Doo Wan Nam, le responsable du développement des affaires en Asie pour le protocole de gouvernance Maker. „La communauté coréenne a été agréablement surprise par la récente augmentation de la prime coréenne. Pendant la majeure partie de l’année 2020, il y a eu en fait une réduction coréenne de 1 à 3 %“, a-t-il déclaré à Decrypt.

Mais la prime n’est pas le résultat de la volonté des commerçants coréens de payer plus cher pour Bitcoin. Les recherches menées à partir de 2019 suggèrent que la différence est due au fait que la paire Bitcoin/Won coréen est plus prédominante en Corée que la paire Bitcoin/Dollar dans d’autres endroits, et à la différence de change correspondante entre le Won et le dollar américain.

Habituellement, de telles opportunités (pour d’autres paires Bitcoin/fiat très liquides) sont fermées par les arbitragistes qui utilisent cette voie : Acheter l’actif le moins cher, le transférer sur une bourse où il se vend plus cher, le vendre pour du fiat, et empocher la différence.

Toutefois, des contrôles stricts des capitaux en Corée empêchent ce type de situation. „Le won coréen est une monnaie restreinte, ce qui limite la possibilité de convertir facilement les devises et de procéder à des transferts transfrontaliers. Sans la voie de conversion, la boucle d’arbitrage ne peut pas être fermée par les arbitragistes“, a déclaré Jonathan Leong, fondateur de la bourse crypto taïwanaise BTSE, dans une note adressée à Decrypt.

Mais bien que l’arbitrage soit difficile à fermer, certains traders considèrent que la hausse de la prime est un indicateur de la hausse du sentiment – et peut-être des prix – pour Bitcoin à l’avenir. „La hausse de 2017 a été marquée par une prime kimchi constante tout au long du rallye, elle a particulièrement augmenté pendant les sommets locaux“, a déclaré Mohit Sorout, fondateur de la société de commerce de crypto Bitazu Capital.

Il a ajouté : „C’est la première fois depuis juillet 2019 que la prime remonte, atteignant 6,35% il y a quelques jours. Cela peut marquer un sommet local, mais une prime soutenue pendant des semaines signalerait un marché haussier enragé“.

Pendant ce temps, la prime continue de vivre. Au moment de mettre sous presse, Bitcoin se vend 31 267 dollars sur la bourse de cryptage américaine Coinbase, mais sur la bourse coréenne Bithumb, il se vend 32 577 dollars, soit une différence de 4,1 %. Mais comme toute chose attrayante, elle est difficile à obtenir.

I principali giocatori continuano ad accumulare bitcoin

I grandi investitori continuano ad accumulare BTC, come evidenziato dall’ultimo rapporto della società di gestione degli asset digitali Grayscale.

Fai il tuo tiro da tre punti con il bonus di benvenuto di 7 BTC!Non è necessario saltare in alto per raggiungere le quote più alte e i pagamenti istantanei!

Venerdì scorso, questo gigante ha pubblicato i dati, da cui ne consegue che l’importo totale dei fondi nella criptovaluta sotto il suo controllo ha raggiunto i 16,3 miliardi di dollari.

L’analista Kevin Rook ha twittato che Grayscale ha continuato ad acquistare bitcoin anche durante il recente consolidamento del mercato delle criptovalute.

Ha notato che la società Bitcoin Profit trust ha acquisito 12.319 monete in un solo giorno. Questo è più che nell’intera ultima settimana in cui Grayscale ha investito nell’acquisizione di 11.512 BTC.

Di tendenza:

Lo stratega di Miller Tabak prevede che BTC scenderà del 25-30% nel 2021

L’attivazione di grandi investitori indica che sono destinati a una crescita a lungo termine del valore della più grande valuta digitale. Al momento, i trust di Bitcoin ed Ethereum Grayscale hanno accumulato risorse digitali rispettivamente di $ 14,075 miliardi e $ 1,808 miliardi.

Recentemente si è appreso che la società si sta preparando a sospendere l’accettazione di fondi in diversi trust di criptovaluta. Tuttavia, la maggior parte degli osservatori è fiduciosa che questa sarà una misura temporanea.

In precedenza, l’analista di TradeBlock John Todaro ha affermato che la maggior parte degli investitori istituzionali acquista bitcoin su piattaforme OTC. Pertanto, entrano nel mercato delle criptovalute per non esacerbare la loro volatilità.

This restaurateur served sushi for Bitcoin, his life changed – What he did with his treasure

Sushi worth its weight in gold – It’s an extraordinary new story, the secret of which only Bitcoin (BTC) has, that we’re going to tell you today. After the incredible adventure of the Taihuttu family who sold everything to buy Bitcoin for $900, here is the story of the restaurateur who received 10 BTC in exchange for a few sushi.

A bill paid in Bitcoins in 2013

This Bitcoinsic anecdote was lived by the journalist Kashmir Hill, who explains, in the New York Times, how it all began.

It was in May 2013, when the value of a single Bitcoin had just reached a new peak – at over 100 dollars – that the journalist decided to settle her bill at a Japanese restaurant with the young cryptomony created by Satoshi Nakamoto.

It must be said that the journalist had tried to spend her Bitcoin, bought for a handful of dollars some time before, on a young site called Coinbase.

„There weren’t many places that knew about Bitcoin, let alone accepted it for purchases. But since I was living in the technological mecca of San Francisco at the time, I still had a few options, including a cupcake store and a sushi restaurant called ‚Sake Zone‘. »

  – Kashmir Hill

And it was in the latter that she spent almost all of her last bitcoins of the time. For the occasion, the journalist had created a meet up event open to members of a new community of Bitcoin enthusiasts, which had just been created on the social network Reddit.

When simply accepting Bitcoins can pay big dividends

The manager of the Japanese restaurant Sake Zone, Yung Chen, had therefore taken the risk of receiving a motley crew of early cryptocurrency enthusiasts, and above all of accepting Bitcoins at a time when it was not easy to convert them back into fiat money.

At the end of the evening, he received 10.35 BTC as payment for the drinks of the guests of the journalist Kashmir Hill. What was then worth $1,000 is now valued at $240,000.

Seven and a half years later, the journalist called Yung Chen on the phone to find out where he stood. It turns out that the restaurateur was able to retire a little early, thanks in part to the bitcoin he had earned at the time. Indeed, by accepting Bitcoin early, he had accumulated 41 BTCs in those years. A gigantic hoard that would be worth $950,000 today.

But Cheng has nevertheless yielded to the temptation to resell some of it since, during the previous speculative bubble of 2017. A sale that he explains he regrets:

„In 2017, after the closure of the Sake Zone, when the bitcoins were worth a few thousand dollars […] [I] sold about a quarter of these bitcoins. I feel so badly about it…. Now I’m keeping them. Now I’m keeping it. That’s all I’m doing. I have them right here, like a stock, and I’m waiting. Bitcoin has become one of my main savings assets.“

Bitcoin has transformed more than a lifetime since its inception in 2009. Everyone who has been in the cryptosphere long enough has felt the same as the 2 protagonists of this story. However, even if HODL is a self-respecting art of living, spending a few satoshis (and not whole Bitcoins anymore) brings the Bitcoin network to life, so we have to find the right balance.

One of the first Bitcoin developers loses $1.3 billion for selling too soon

„Now I’d be a billionaire if I hadn’t sold too soon the 55,000 bitcoins I mined on my laptop in 2009-2010.

Martti Malmi, one of the first developers of Bitcoin and also known as Sirius, has explained what has happened to his once large holdings of cryptomoney since 2009.

According to a Friday Twitter feed from the former Bitcoin developer (BTC), Malmi mined approximately 55,000 coins between 2009 and 2010 when the price was almost zero. Malmi said she ended up liquidating 5,050 BTCs for $5 in October 2009, and losing 30,000 BTCs through one of the first Bitcoin exchanges she made when „there was no established exchange rate.

Where are the Bitcoin pizza coins now?

„I was planning to HODL (hold) the rest of my Bitcoin, but I had to sell most of it at a bad rate (about $5) in 2012, when it took longer than expected to find a new job,“ Malmi said. „I’ve since maintained a variable amount of savings at BTC. It’s not much, but it’s still good earnings over the years.

I’d be a *millionaire* now if I hadn’t sold the 55,000 bitcoins I mined on my laptop too soon in 2009-2010 (especially before 2012). That’s unfortunate, but the first bitcoiners set off something bigger than personal gain.

However, possibly the most substantial investment of this Bitcoin developer’s first crypto earnings was when he sold 10,000 BTCs in 2011 to buy an apartment in Helsinki. „It’s probably the most expensive studio apartment in the world now,“ he said on Twitter.

We’ve all had a „Pizza Day“ moment – what’s yours?

With Bitcoin’s recent price hike to $24,000, Malmi’s original 55,000 BTC coins would now be worth more than $1.3 billion. Despite this, the former developer says he’s „never really regretted it.

„This hasn’t been as hard as it might seem at first glance,“ Malmi said. „It’s not like I had a billion dollars and lost it overnight. In addition to Bitcoin’s success, I was very happy to have my own apartment at 22.

She added:

„Maybe because of the Finnish culture, the idealistic mentality and the lack of life experience, I never thought much about making money. It happened accidentally as a by-product of Satoshi asking me to keep my node running so that others could connect.

Tyler Winklevoss had a $3 million ‚Bitcoin pizza moment‘ with a trip to space

Malmi is not the only important personality related to cryptomontages who liquidated their properties apparently out of necessity. In October, Ripple’s technical director David Schwartz revealed that he sold 40,000 Ether (ETH) at $1 each as part of a risk management plan he made with his wife in 2012. The tokens would now be worth more than $26 million after the price exceeded $600 last week.

TA : Bitcoin près de la zone d’inflexion, pourquoi une répartition en dessous de 15 800 $ semble probable

Le prix du bitcoin a commencé une correction à la baisse à partir d’un niveau bien supérieur à 16 200 dollars par rapport au dollar américain. La CTB est susceptible d’accélérer ses pertes en cas de rupture nette en dessous du support de 15 800 $.

  • Bitcoin n’est pas parvenu à rester au-dessus du support de 16 200 dollars et a prolongé sa baisse.
  • Le prix se négocie actuellement en dessous de 16.000 dollars et de la moyenne mobile simple de 100 heures.
  • Il y a une ligne de tendance baissière clé qui se forme avec une résistance proche de 16 050 $ sur le graphique horaire de la paire BTC/USD (données provenant du Kraken).
  • La paire reste exposée à un risque de forte baisse en cas de rupture nette en dessous du support de 15 800 $.

Le prix des bitcoins pourrait continuer à baisser

Après avoir lutté pour dépasser le niveau de 16 500 dollars, le prix du bitcoin a commencé à baisser. La BTC a cassé le niveau de soutien de 16 200 $ et s’est installée en dessous de la moyenne mobile simple de 100 heures pour entrer dans une zone baissière à court terme.

Elle a même cassé la poignée des 16 000 dollars, mais les taureaux ont pu protéger 15 800 dollars. Le récent creux de la courbe s’est formé aux alentours de 15 803 $ avant que le prix n’entame un léger mouvement à la hausse. Il y a eu une cassure au-dessus des niveaux de 15 900 $ et 15 950 $.

Le prix du bitcoin a même dépassé le niveau de 50 % de retracement des Fibres de la récente baisse, passant de 16 172 $ à 15 803 $. Le prix a maintenant du mal à se redresser au-dessus de la zone des 16 000 dollars et de la moyenne mobile simple de 100 heures.

Il y a également une ligne de tendance baissière clé qui se forme avec une résistance proche de 16.050 $ sur le graphique horaire de la paire BTC/USD. La ligne de tendance est proche du niveau de retracement de 61,8% de la récente baisse du haut de 16 172 $ au bas de 15 803 $.

Une rupture nette au-dessus de la résistance de la ligne de tendance, 16 100 $ et le SMA de 100 heures pourrait ouvrir les portes à une nouvelle hausse dans les prochaines sessions.

Rupture en baisse de la CTB ?

Si le bitcoin ne parvient pas à franchir la résistance de la ligne de tendance, 16 100 $ et le SMA de 100 heures, il y a un risque de rupture à la baisse. Le premier support important à la baisse est proche du niveau de 15 800 $.

Une cassure à la baisse en dessous du support de 15 800 $ pourrait peut-être mettre beaucoup de pression sur les taureaux. Dans ce cas, le prix est susceptible de baisser vers le support de 15 500 $ ou même de 15 200 $.

Indicateurs techniques :

  • MACD horaire – Le MACD perd lentement de son élan dans la zone haussière.
  • RSI horaire (indice de force relative) – Le RSI de la CTB/USD est actuellement proche du niveau 50.
  • Principaux niveaux de soutien – 15 800 $, suivi de 15 500 $.
  • Principaux niveaux de résistance – 16 000 $, 16 050 $ et 16 200 $.

Ripple General Director wished Bitcoin success

According to Brad Garlinghaus, CEO of Ripple Crypto, XRP token and bitcoin cannot be compared. The businessman expressed his position in an interview with the popular Fortune publication.

He stressed that the two digital currencies mentioned above have completely different market objectives. At the same time, the CEO of Ripple finally recognised the potential of BTC and even wished him success. Although Garlinghaus had previously criticized Bitcoin from time to time.

The head of Ripple also commented on the BTC Rally in November, which is now traded above $18,600. Bitcoin, according to Garlinghouse, is excellent for protecting capital from inflation. However, if you look at the crypt currency in terms Bitcoin Profit of speed and transaction processing costs, the best option would be an XRP token.

On the subject of crypt regulation, Garlinghouse pointed out the tough stance of the US authorities in this direction.

That is why his company has already started considering options to change its jurisdiction. In the near future the Ripple team headquarters may move to Japan or Singapore.

Pakistan: SECP publiserer utforskningsrapport om kryptoverordninger

An offisiell kilde viser at den pakistanske finansregulatoren jobber med å regulere kryptovalutaer.

Pakistan utvikler Crypto Regulatory Framework

I følge en rapportereav Finance Magnets ,Pakistans finansiell regulator – Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) – jobber med å utvikle et regelverk for digitale eiendeler.

Nylig publiserte SECP en artikkel om private digitale eiendeler, der den sier at den „ønsker innspill / kommentarer velkommen.“

I henhold til det offisielle dokumentet overveier SECP å skape en „definisjon for å gjenkjenne digitale eiendeler i Pakistan.“ Videre søker den å finne en „vei fremover for å utforme og utvikle et robust reguleringsregime på linje med verden for regulering av digitale eiendeler“, og å „presentere politiske forslag til deltakere i industrien og interessenter.“

Når det er sagt, er det verdt å merke seg at SECPs dokument ingen steder inneholder informasjon om planer for opprettelse av en pakistansk sentralbank digital valuta (CBDC). Spesielt har imidlertid Pakistan tidligere uttalt at de planlegger å opprette en funksjonell Immediate Edge innen 2025.
For uinnvidde er CBDC i hovedsak en form for en digitalisert suverene valuta styrt av sentralbanken i et land eller en stat. For sent har flere land, somKina, Japan, Sør-Korea, og Storbritannia, blant andre, har gått inn i CBDC-rommet.

Hva er mulighetene?

I artikkelen sier SECP at digitale eiendeler er „starten på en ny æra med digital finansiering“, og at deres regulering „bare kunne være mulig ved initiering av en ny æra som gjenoppfinner reguleringsregimet [eller] tiltak når de er kjent av regulatorene globalt i dag. ”

Spesielt fremhever artikkelen to spesifikke tilnærminger for å regulere digitale eiendeler.

Den første av disse tilnærmingene tar til orde for „å regulere og begrense nye produkter i henhold til eksisterende regelverk, og kan i noen tilfeller til og med medføre direkte forbud.“ Under denne tilnærmingen nevner artikkelen „innovatører er forpliktet til å tilpasse seg det rådende lovgivningsmiljøet.“

Alternativt er den andre tilnærmingen i stor grad basert på antagelsen om ‚la ting skje.‘ Denne tilnærmingen, den fra Laissez-Faire, innebærer minimal innblanding fra myndighetene eller regulatorene, og er mer en „vent og se“ -tilnærming der regelverk er utviklet etter nøye overholdelse av markedsadferd i en betydelig periode.
