Bitcoin trading in Ghana

Hi guys. I am interested in purchasing bitcoins but finding it difficult to find a safe way to do so. The exchanges online have a lot of negative talk about them and the local websites here have no way to show they are honest or legit. Anybody have any experience buying bitcoins in Ghana? I'd love to hear some feedback. Thanks.

P-REP Proposal; ICON, 20% exposure in top crypto event of 2020, reach 100+ universities/corporate partners (BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD), organized by MouseBelt.

Summary:
Event site: https://www.ri2020.io/
Event date: May 18th, 2020
P-PREP Commitment Date: April 30th, 2020
Telegram: u/markusreisner
We believe we have a strong proposition to market ICON in a meaningful way to some of the largest communities in crypto.
The MouseBelt team has the largest global network of over 100+ universities in 20+ countries. Over the last few months, 10+ university blockchain events we were working with got canceled for obvious reasons.
Due to that fact, and our understanding of our reach we decided to launch a virtual conference. Since April 10th here is what happened:
MouseBelt will invest over $70k+ into this event. We would like to have fellow P-Reps invest $20k (this will go 100% to BlockTV production cost).
The benefit to the ICON community will be:
Background:
MouseBelt is a popular blockchain ecosystem consisting of multiple parts:
MouseBelt as ICON developers:
Our engineering team has implemented token assets on ZenSports (SPORTS), the first STO on the ICON network, and GrowYourBase, the #1 IRC2 application token in market capitalization on the ICON network.
Currently, we are developing the Balanced network in concert with ICX_Station, PARROT9, and Iconosphere. Balanced will bring synthetic assets backed by ICX to the ICON network, as well as tokenized staked ICX. This can assist with both a stable asset for payments, and a base for other DeFi applications
MouseBelt as a P-Rep:
We have been a Main P-Rep most of the time since decentralization of the network and so far had utilized our funds for student education.
Such as the “ICON in a box” workshops and the Milwaukee Blockchain Conference, which we sponsored in a direct ICX payment and the second annual payment for UCLA’s blockchain engineering course.
REIMAGINE2020, Conference details:
Conferences have always been an integral part of the blockchain space to promote projects in the industry.
With recent evolutions around the globe, things have changed. They either got canceled or delayed.
We have created REIMAGINE2020, a virtual conference.
Shared by the ICON Foundation on April 18.
We can effectively and efficiently promote ICON to the world through Reiamgine2020 | BlockTV. The driving force behind the conference is: highest quality of Content matched with the best production quality for Video. The funds will allow MouseBelt to promote ICON logo/branding throughout the conference/programming for straight 72 hr of live streaming. Additionally, we have the opportunity to properly place ICON logo/branding in highly favorable on-screen placements (tickers/commercials/plugs and continuous branding) reaching 5M viewers globally. ICX Station is providing a Keynote to drive global interest.
Confirmed partners
Schedule & Format
Production Status
Audience
In addition to the communities of our confirmed partners and universities we are targeting:
1. Viewers - Tuning into the livestream, attending a workshop, or watching the content post-conference.
2. Participants - Speakers, partners, and sponsors
3. As far as hard data for "attendees" we have two signals:

two giftcards scams today; both already redeemed

Basically, im a pretty new vendor (9 feedbacks) trying to buy some itunes giftcard with bitcoin for personal use . Today I have encounter 2 people trying to scam me. First scammer from Nigeria opened a trade for $100 itunes giftcard and uploaded a picture of the code. I tried to redeem that code before releasing the bitcoin and surprising found out that the code has already been redeemed. I reported this to the trader and he immediately said I should release the bitcoin or my account will get terminated.
An hour later, another trader from Ghana opened a trade for $100 itunes giftcard, and again this card has already been redeemed. He even uploaded a picture of a Caucasian (which obviously isn't him) man holding the card.
Is there anyway I could lose these 2 disputes?

Germany plans to block private stable currency According to a report by Der Spiegel, a German ruling coalition, the German ruling coalition, is trying to reject projects like Libra. Thomas Heilmann, a member of the German Christian Democratic Union (CDU), said that this month, members of the German government will approve the country’s blockchain strategy, which will “not allow market-related private stable currencies to exist in the country.” At the same time, Thomas Heilmann said that so far, the measures taken by central banks have done a good job in dealing with the crisis and inflation. But once a digital money provider dominates the market, it will be difficult to do so.
Libra Association: Welcome to the review of regulators, policy makers must carefully consider the application of blockchain technology in financial policy In response to the French Finance Minister’s refusal to develop Libra in Europe, the Libra Association told Coindesk that the comments of the French Finance Minister further underlined the importance of our cooperation with regulators and leaders around the world. In the nearly three months since the announcement of the planned Libra project, we have become the most watched financial technology project in the world. We welcome this review and deliberately designed a long-running runway to conduct these conversations, educate stakeholders and incorporate their feedback into our designs. The Libra Association and its members are committed to working with regulatory agencies. We recognize that blockchain is an emerging technology, and policymakers must carefully consider the application of blockchain technology in financial policy.
French Finance Minister: Digital currency needs a common framework, Europe should consider creating a public digital currency French Finance Minister Lemaire said that digital currencies need a common framework and Europe should consider creating a public digital currency. In addition, we should refuse Facebook to develop its cryptocurrency Libra in the EU. Gold mentioned earlier, it also said that Libra increases the risk of abuse of sovereign status, Libra will also bring systemic risks. In the current situation in Europe, the Libra project cannot be allowed to continue.

U.S. Treasury official: If there is no strong security, cryptocurrency may become a new channel for terrorist organizations to transfer funds. According to Cointelegraph, Sigal Mandelker, deputy minister of terrorism and financial intelligence at the US Treasury, said at the 19th annual International Conference on Counter-Terrorism that terrorist organizations, their supporters and sympathizers are constantly seeking new ways to raise and transfer. Funds are not subject to investigation or tracking by law enforcement agencies. While most terrorist organizations still rely primarily on traditional financial systems and cash transfer funds, cryptocurrencies may become the next area without adequate and strong security.
Libra Association COO: Libra reserves will not exceed 200 billion US dollars at most, and the US dollar is expected to account for half Bertrand Perez, managing director and chief operating officer of the Libra Association, recently refuted the statement that “incorporating French currency into Libra reserves will affect central bank monetary policy”. According to Perez, this is not reasonable, because the reality is that the legal currency policy will affect Libra through a “basket of currencies”, not the other way around. In addition, Perez also said that the maximum Libra reserve will not exceed 200 billion US dollars, this figure seems to be very large, but in the global financial market is actually a “very low” amount, like the US investment management giant BlackRock The management assets of the group (BlackRock) amounted to 6.84 trillion US dollars. Perez also talked about how to deal with a currency crash in the basket: “If there is a currency disaster or crisis before the release of Libra, we can remove it from the basket, but this decision will be two-thirds of the association. The members voted. “Although the association is still deciding how to determine the weight of a basket of currencies, Perez said that the dollar should be very important and is expected to be around half.”
Ethereum 2.0 multi-client test network made new progress: Developer reports 7 client operation confirmation Jonny Rhea, an engineer at ConsenSys’s development team PegaSys, announced on Twitter that Ethereum’s 2.0 client-side operations have been confirmed. Consistency is now achieved by installing the seven clients of the beacon chain and forming the network. The seven clients are: Prysm from Prysmatic Labs, Artemis from PegaSys, Nimbus from Status, Lighthouse from Sigma Prime, Lodestar from Chainsafe, Trinity from Triniy Team, and Harmony from Ether Camp. Ethereum 2.0 is expected to be implemented in 2020 ∼ 2021. The various teams developing the Ethereum 2.0 client have completed the trial network composition as a separate client, but running on multiple clients is still in development. The development team is currently gathering in Boston for on-site verification. On September 12th, Preston Van Loon of Prysmatic Labs also reported on the confirmation of five clients. There are currently 9 clients in Ethereum 2.0. In the operational confirmation of Rhea, Parity and Yeeth are not included. But Parity developer Wei Tang has also reported multi-client operation confirmation for Parity and Lighthouse.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down marginally at its current price of $10,320, which marks a slight retrace from its daily highs of $10,450.
Ever since BTC bounced from its support level at $10,000, the cryptocurrency has been facing a bout of consolidation after its upwards momentum stalled, which may mean that its bulls do not have enough strength at the moment to push the cryptocurrency higher.

The Japan Financial Services Agency held the second round of the Encrypted Assets Roundtable, calling Libra the “alarm clock” According to the official website of the Japan Financial Services Agency on September 9, the Japanese Financial Agency revealed today that the agency had held the second round table on encrypted assets in Tokyo on September 6. The meeting brought together relevant financial regulators and international organizations to discuss and exchange experiences on the latest developments in cryptographic assets, including stable currency. The conference consisted of four main topics, namely: 1. The latest technological developments and challenges of cryptographic assets; 2. Supervision of crypto-equity trading platforms; 3. Investor protection and market integrity; 4. Participation of multiple stakeholders global cooperation. It is reported that the meeting is an invitation system and is not open to the public. At the meeting, the Japanese Finance Agency’s international deputy, Iwami, made an opening speech, saying: “Libra is like a ‘sounding alarm clock’ to all of us. The alarm bell has been ringing, which requires regulators and central bank officials to expand. Eyes, face up to the problem to face sooner or later. Many other clocks may be waiting for the next time.”
US Deputy Treasury Secretary: Libra will accept US anti-money laundering review On the 11th, Sigal Mandelker, deputy secretary of the US Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence, warned on Tuesday that Libra, the proposed cryptocurrency of Facebook (FB.O), must comply with US anti-money laundering standards in order to survive, even if its headquarters is in Switzerland. Mandelker said: “What we have pointed out to them many times is that they must deploy appropriate anti-money laundering and sanctions programs to combat terrorist financing. I think they are still at a very early stage of thinking about how to meet these requirements.”
Indian parliamentarian: cryptocurrency is more complicated than the Internet in the early stages of development Indian Congressman Rajeev Chandrasekhar said in an interview that cryptocurrency is much more complicated in the early stages of its development than the Internet. The growth and innovation momentum of encryption technology is almost like a perfect storm. Speaking of India’s position on managing encryption for the public, he cautioned that the Supreme Court has ruled that privacy is a fundamental right for all Indians. In addition, he added, there is currently no legislative and legal framework for innovation to allow people to collect data from consumers and to allow consumers to agree. He deliberately confused encryption and privacy because it currently does not have a policy framework.

Bitcoin price is slowly declining and recently broke the $10,000 support area against the US Dollar. The price is facing an uphill task and it might continue to struggle near $10,250 and $10,300. There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $10,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken). The price could continue to slide as long as it is trading below the $10,400 pivot level in the near term. Bitcoin price is under pressure below $10,250 against the US Dollar. BTC may perhaps accelerate decline as long as there is no close above the $10,400 and $10,500 levels.

BTC briefly fell below the $10,000 mark yesterday to date, then rebounded quickly and is now back near $10,200. In the past 24 hours, the net outflow of BTC funds is close to $450 million, and the outflow of funds has decreased compared with the previous cycle. The BTC continued to withdraw at night yesterday and was quickly pulled up after breaking the $10,000 barrier. The air force remained weak, with strong overall support underneath. Yesterday, the day line closed a long shadow line, the day is expected to oscillate upward, the medium-term trend continues to lean towards bulls, but BC has not given a clear direction, the trading needs to pay attention to risk. In terms of operation, the spot can be held continuously, the strategy of replenishing warehouse at a low level should be maintained, and the risk should be avoided.

18 reasons bitcoin price could 10x or more

A friend told me there was no way that Bitcoin could go up 10x from $750. So I made this list for him.
  1. Growing use of bitcoin for the unbankable. For example in the USA, the “legal” marijuana industry is a $20 billion industry that operates primarily in cash since marijuana businesses cannot get bank accounts. What if they started using bitcoin for their banking needs. Worldwide probably 3+ billion people are unbankable due to lack of ID, trustworthy domestic banking system, etc. Bitcoin on a phone could leapfrog legacy banking systems for billions of people.
  2. Bitcoin evolves where it is easy for the average investor to buy BTC. *Bitcoin futures are likely to be launched in 2017 by the CME. See: http://www.wsj.com/articles/bitcoin-futures-might-be-coming-soon-1479143252 I would assume it will be upward pressure on BTC prices.
  3. If a Bitcoin ETF ever launches it will create a potentially huge onramp of new investors. The Gold ETF generated $9 MM purchase per day. The less popular oil ETF generated $4 MM purchases of oil per day. The entire trading market for USD / BTC is $10 MM per day right now. Traders estimate that it’s only possible to buy $1.7 of new BTC a day without moving the price. Even that seems really high to me. Either way, if a ETF comes online now, it sure seems likely to inflate a bitcoin bubble for good or ill. See : https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-batsbzx-2016-30/batsbzx201630-23.pdf for a good explanation here.
  4. Development of smart contracts creates entirely new industries that ride on bitcoin. Work by Rootstock and Blockstream are promising here. Bitcoin could have Ethereum like smart contract ability by 2017. Success here could create payment options for entirely new industries, which would boost demand for BTC.
  5. Bitcoin theft resistance improves. Right now it’s tough for a non-technical person to store bitcoin independently securely. It’s also impossible for central authorities to keep bitcoin online securely. Technology almost already exists to change that though.
  6. Easier access to purchase in foreign countries. Places where BTC is most needed like Egypt, Venezuela, India, etc it’s hard to get.
  7. Mainstream USA capital accepts this as a an asset class and pension funds or hedge funds start allocating a % of assets to BTC. See this Wall Street report for a description of why this makes sense for institutional and personal investors: http://research.ark-invest.com/hubfs/1_Download_Files_ARK-Invest/White_Papers/Bitcoin-Ringing-The-Bell-For-A-New-Asset-Class.pdf
  8. Bitcoin continues the linear pace of adoption it has today -- no heroic gains but just slow and steady with time. Steady growth of adoption combined with limited inflation or even deflation of supply will lead to price growth.
  9. Commercial / transactional uses emerge that drive more widespread ownership and lower volatility
  10. The world continues to deliver moments that test faith in fiat currency such as the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent bailouts and quantitative easing, paper currency expiration in India, hyperinflation in Argentina, Chinese Yuan devaluation, Cyprus bank confiscation, systemic collapse in Venezuela, etc. Combine those moments with greater access to bitcoin worldwide and belief that it’s a decent store of value.
  11. Bitcoin use as the rails for remittance and cross border transactions. This use is already growing at 100%+ year on year, albeit from a very small base. It would need to grow much, much more to materially increase demand for bitcoin.
  12. Most countries are terrible managers of their own currency. Some countries such as Panama and El Salvador have already given up on the idea of managing their own currency and simply use US Dollars. What if just one of the 190+ countries on earth adopted Bitcoin as legal tender for some or even all uses? For comparison sake, the 55th largest currency, New Zealand has a money supply of $105 billion which is approximately 10x the size of bitcoin’s current market cap. China has a money supply of $20 trillion which is 1800x bitcoin. Bitcoin money supply is currently equivalent to Cambodia and Ghana at around $11 billion.
  13. Bitcoin becomes the replacement of higher-fee processors like Visa, MasterCard and American Express, which have a combined market capitalization of almost $350 Bn today. If Bitcoin were to capture that value, one Bitcoin would be worth almost $17,000. While bitcoin transaction volume is slowly growing, bitcoin is not on pace to get anywhere near visa like transactions at current pace.
  14. Some countries begin to buy Bitcoin for foreign reserves the way they buy gold today.
  15. Bitcoin is increasingly used for crowdfunding and investment funding. This is already happening. In 2016 there have already been dozens of ICOs of startups using bitcoin and ethereum as currency for multi-million dollar fundraisings.
  16. Use of bitcoin for regulation arbitrage grows. For example the growth of bitcoin for prediction markets, internet betting, drugs, darknet trades, etc.
  17. Development of micro payments that ride on bitcoin. There are a few startups working on this such as Brave browser, Yours, 21 but there is no real traction yet. Success here could create payment options for entirely new industries, which would boost demand for BTC.
  18. Increased ability to scale and associated lower transaction fees. After SegWit goes live multiple scaling solutions become possible including the lightning network, other off chain solutions, or a fork to a larger block size. Right now high transaction fees and full blocks are retarding the growth of bitcoin as a payment system. Scaling solutions could and should reverse this though.
  19. The development of a stablecoin which makes it possible for Bitcoin to become the behind the scenes asset for many applications, where the user might not be aware that they are actually using bitcoin.
Some of these things alone could create a 10x price increase. Other things will merely push the price slightly north. What do you think? Anything you would add or remove from this list?

PSA: 31 Chinese cities have GDP the size of countries, and they're all rushing into Bithumb. This is your second chance to ride the Bitcoin rocket again through Bitcoin Cash.

Only 3 things you need to know:
1) China banned Bitcoin trading.
2) Chinese moved trading to the Bithumb exchange in Korea.
3) China has almost 1.4 billion population, and 31 cities with economies the size of countries:
In the past 2 hours there have been many comments wondering/complaining about why Bitcoin Cash prices are being influenced by just one exchange (Bithumb), because many people are not familiar with the scale they're dealing with, this link will help them visualize the situation: when the Chinese rush in, it's actually 31+ countries worth of people rushing in in terms of capital:
http://www.visualcapitalist.com/31-chinese-cities-economies-big-countries/
When the Chinese rush in they often run over everything in their path:

Alibaba Earns Record-Breaking ¥10 Billion in 3 Minutes for Singles Day
List of Chinese cities with economies the size of nations:
Gaining perspective on China’s monstrous economy isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
With 1.4 billion people and the third-largest geographical area, the country is a vast place to begin with. Add in explosive economic growth, a market-oriented but Communist government, a longstanding and complex cultural history, and self-inflicted demographic challenges – and understanding China can be even more of a puzzle.
City by City
To truly grasp the emergence of China, one approach is to look at the impressive economic footprint made by the country’s cities.
Of course, cities like Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong are the metro economic powerhouses that most people are familiar with. But have you heard of cities like Shijiazhuang, Wuxi, Changsha, Suzhou, Ningbo, Foshan, or Yantai?
There are literally dozens of Chinese cities that most people in Western countries have never heard of – yet they each hold millions of people and have an economic output comparable to nations.
Here’s a list of 35 of them, the size of their local economy, and a comparably sized national economy:
Rank Chinese City City GDP (2015, PPP, in billions) Comparable Country
1 Shanghai $810 Philippines
2 Beijing $664 U.A.E.
3 Guangzhou $524 Switzerland
4 Shenzhen $491 Sweden
5 Tianjin $478 Romania
6 Suzhou $440 Austria
7 Chongqing $425 Chile
8 Hong Kong $414 Peru
9 Wuhan $324 Israel
10 Chengdu $306 Norway
11 Hangzhou $275 Greece
12 Nanjing $272 Denmark

Just a friendly reminder to pay your taxes, and one thing you can do before year-end to reduce your tax burden (For those subject to US tax law)

Hello ethtrader! My name is Scott Stevens, I am a practicing ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) and I hate paying taxes! Unfortunately, for US citizens and those subject to US tax law. . . we gotta.
All the recent price action has caught the attention of the general public, the media, and unfortunately the IRS. As usual, they will be looking to take their cut. Additionally, with the recent passage of the Republican tax bill, one key tax loophole has been closed, the "1031 exchange." This is a provision that allows for "like kind" exchanges of property. While cryptocurrency is considered property by the IRS, the new tax bill clarifies states that starting in 2018, that 1031 exchanges are valid exclusively for real estate. What this means is that every single cryptocurrency trade we make is a potentially taxable event.
Edit: There is some debate about whether 1031 exchanges are valid for crypto before the new tax provision kicks in. My opinion is that it is unlikely that the IRS considers them valid. This is only my opinion; I"m not trying to "trick" people into supporting my cause by stating this.
For anyone who has made significant profits this year, it will be far easier to pay the piper now rather than face the penalties and interest the IRS will assess later. There are certainly ways you could try to skirt around the IRS, through Monero or Zcash or any number of ways to obfuscate your trades. But the bottom line is that if you end up cashing out into fiat into any traditional banking system, even years down the road, there will be questions about where the money came from, and you will be required to document it. If you've made any significant profit, you can spend years looking over your shoulder and worrying, or you can accept the reality of "death and taxes." Bitcoin.tax has some great resources, including a directory of professionals that can help you with your individual situation.
The good news is that you can do some good in the world, and reduce your tax liability at the same time by donating cryptocurrency to charity! By donating an appreciated asset, such as stock shares, real estate, or cryptocurrency, you do not realize any capital gains on the donation, and receive a tax deduction for your donation.
As a small holder of multiple "altcoins," I've been frustrated by the lack of options to donate anything but Bitcoin and Ethereum to most major charities. Certainly it is simple to trade altcoins into Bitcoin or Eth, and then donate those, but the trade to convert my altcoins then becomes taxable, and I do not get the same reduction in tax basis compared to as if I had donated the altcoin directly.
For that reason, I've created my own non-profit entity, Blockchain Benevolence, with the hope of being able to accept nearly any cryptocurrency as a donation. We will use these donations to fund cataract surgeries in third world countries, including Ethiopia, Nepal, India, Bhutan, Myanmar, Rwanda, and Ghana. The supplies to perform a single life-changing surgery in one of these countries costs only $25. Cataracts are the worlds leading cause of preventable blindness, and a simple 10-15 minute procedure can literally change someone's life overnight. We are working closely with an existing organization, the Himalayan Cataract Project. Donations we receive will be used to purchase the supplies for surgery, which will be routed through their existing network to those in need. The HCP has been featured on 60 minutes, Vice, and has won several awards for their work.
I am not soliciting for donations at this time- this nonprofit was only incorporated a few months ago and we do not yet have 501(c)3 status from the IRS. Our application for this is in, but it is a process that can take from 3-18 months. Until we have that status, donations will not be tax-deductible.
However, The Himalayan Cataract Project does have 501(c)3 status, and is able to accept donations directly. I have been helping them set up the ability to accept crypto donations, and they will be able to accept BTC, ETH, and LTC.
DM me here or email at blockchainbenevolence @gmail.com for more information, or if you are interested in donating to the Himalayan Cataract Project! Remember, for your donation to be tax deductible for 2017's taxes, your donation has to be in before year-end.

What are the different cryptocurrency regulations in major countries? Find the answer after reading this article.
Cryptocurrency Regulations across Major Countries
Cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry may seem sufficiently exciting and attractive to you now. After all, you are taking the time and effort to study this course. You may be planning to work in cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry. Of course, we want to encourage you and help you proceed toward your goal. But it is also important you understand the regulations guiding the blockchain industry to help keep yourself out of trouble.
This year, in particular, seems to be the year in which a lot of countries are looking to finally coalesce the regulations relating to the blockchain industry into a workable legal framework. Some countries are more accommodating to cryptocurrency and blockchain technological innovations while others are still more cautious. We will examine how each major country is forming their own regulatory framework for the blockchain industry.
Canada
Cryptocurrencies are not considered legal tender in Canada. This was clearly expressed by the country’s Financial Consumer Agency (FCA). Canada, like the US, has yet to clearly define or legislate a framework surrounding cryptocurrencies. But Canada still appears to be among the most transparent of countries for the nation’s interpretation and enforcement of the law surrounding cryptocurrencies (aside from Switzerland). For the time being, Canada has clearly stated its reluctance to adopt cryptocurrency as a legal tender, due to its high volatility. “ “The United States of America (USA)
There are certain laws regarding transactions in virtual currency in the US today but there is still no comprehensive legal framework. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission currently regulates virtual currencies as commodities. The CFTC is the first US regulator to allow for public cryptocurrency trading. The Securities and Exchange Commission requires registration of any virtual currency traded in the US if it is classified as a security (e.g. by the Howey test).
The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. Typical of most legislators and regulatory agencies in the US, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has intensified its focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And it seems everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and also allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well.
If cryptocurrency becomes a form of legal tender in the US, there will likely be stringent laws on its use. However, if cryptocurrency is treated like a security, cryptocurrencies would be regulated under securities law as interpreted by the SEC. Present securities laws place a large number of limitations on who is able to buy securities, how they are traded, and how to ensure transparency in the flow of information relevant to investors. Also note that non-US investors may experience their own difficulties getting a license to trade cryptocurrencies in the country. “ “Japan
Japan has always been one of the most positive and forward-thinking nations regarding cryptocurrencies and the blockchain. Of course, they were cautious at first, and they knew no more than anyone else in government, which means they literally knew nothing. But they took time to research, learn, and develop an approach to regulate the industry without killing it. The official policy is clear: Protect the public interest, but also encourage the growth of the industry with a legal framework that allows for innovation in blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
China
The situation in China is a sad one. The country has been taking increasingly strict actions to discourage and outlaw any activity related to the blockchain industry. China has banned ICOs, frozen all accounts associated with cryptocurrency, stopped bitcoin miners and even ordered a nationwide ban on all forms of cryptocurrency trading.
China has the strictest laws against cryptocurrency. Yet, despite that fact, as of 2017, 50% of the world’s mining population was from China! If you are involved with the cryptocurrency industry it is strongly advised to stay away from China, and avoid transactions with Chinese business because of the unpredictable and negative legal framework.
“ “The United Kingdom & European Union
Brexit is scheduled to take place in March 2019, yet the UK and the EU still remain united in their regulatory attitude toward cryptocurrencies. There are also reports that the UK and EU are planning to end anonymity for cryptocurrency traders.
The UK and EU are both trying to control all the scams and frauds. They are working with cryptocurrency platforms to stop or at least report all suspicious transactions. This adds a degree of regulatory burden on the exchanges as well as increasing the associated compliance costs. Cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile. They are a high-risk investment. Governments across Europe are greatly concerned about the possibility of both retail and sophisticated investors losing a lot of money.
This has led to a situation similar to that in the US. The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. There is an intense focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well. We certainly hope for intelligent and effective legislation from all the major countries. “ “Accommodating & Unaccommodating Countries
Below is a list of countries we have not specifically covered, but they have each taken an active position on a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. The following countries are either supportive or at least neutral toward cryptocurrencies:
-Switzerland. -Australia. -Nigeria. -Ghana. -South Africa. -Singapore.
Countries with the most stringent and negative cryptocurrency regulation:
-Venezuela. -South Korea. -India. -Russia.
Did you know?
It is not uncommon to see Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency ATMs throughout Japan.
Exchange robberies and hacks like MtGox, and the recent loss of $530 million NEM coins have led to serious debate in the Japanese government. The industry needs to provide a secure and manageable solution to these problems. Voluntary self-regulation and close cooperation with regulatory authorities is the most favored solution. It seems the regulators are working hard behind the scenes right now leading the industry in the desired direction in typical Japanese fashion. “ “Blockchain Industry Regulations in the USA
Based on the information received from the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, there was a variety of responses from different government bodies about blockchain regulations. The regulators responses ranged from indifference to suspicion, and to positive expectation and excitement.
The US government has tremendous constitutional power to regulate business and industry, including of course the blockchain industry if it so desires. But basically, the federal government has been relatively indifferent and has even refused to speak on blockchain regulations despite the interest of various federal agencies. As of 2017, eight states in the US were working on bills promoting the use of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. It is even reported that a few states have actually begun the final steps before voting and passing legislation into law.
On April 3, 2018 Arizona introduced a law allowing corporations to hold and share data on the blockchain. The governor, Doug Ducey, put forward the legislation after the state began accepting signatures and smart contracts recorded on the blockchain as legally valid documentation. In 2017, Delaware was the first state to pass legislation allowing for shares of stocks to be legally traded on the blockchain.
Other notable developments have occurred in the US at the state or local level. Vermont makes use of blockchain as evidence in trials. Chicago uses blockchain to maintain real estate records. New York is currently evaluating four bills for the application of data storage on the blockchain. “ ” Blockchain Regulations in Europe
The entire European Union has approached blockchain with a positive and welcoming attitude. The EU has taken the position that they want to actively encourage innovation. This philosophy could support the development of cryptocurrencies in two ways:
-Encouraging the exploration of uses testing the impact and effect of the laws in a way that allows for a more finely-tuned and sophisticated understanding for all parties involved.
-Giving entrepreneurs the confidence that their target markets will be more trusting of their solution since they are operating with the explicit legal support of the state.
This approach, along with the EU’s scope as the regulator of 28 different countries, will encourage growth across the entire crypto ecosystem, and may end up transforming Europe into one of the most desirable destinations for blockchain development. Entrepreneurs are likely to move to the EU bloc to access the rich vein of available talent, as well as the positive and supportive laws.
The EU has actually disclosed through its executive arm that it is working on the use of blockchain for distributed ledger based projects. EU officials have constantly stated they are looking for ways to support more innovation with distributed ledger technology. The European Commission said it was “”actively monitoring Blockchain and DLT developments”” and has work in progress to explore “”DLT benefits and challenges as well as fields for application in financial services””.
The official press release stated that the commission clearly wants to “”pilot projects to foster decentralized innovation ecosystems and help reshape interactions between consumers, producers, creators and among citizens, businesses and administrations to the end benefit of society””. “ “Blockchain Regulations in Europe §2
Switzerland has gradually become the favored hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain development in Europe. This position has been enhanced through a Swiss non-profit blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystem known as the Crypto Valley Association.
The Crypto Valley Association has begun working on the development of an ICO Code of Conduct to take advantage of the ban imposed by China on token crowd sales. They are hoping to capture the Chinese and Asian entrepreneurs searching for a new home.
Other countries are not as accepting of this new DLT technology and have even gone as far as classifying it as illegal and immoral behavior. There have been hyperbolic concerns most notably from China that cryptocurrencies will destabilize world financial markets.
There are various pilot projects and efforts to prove the benefits of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain industry currently being tested all across Europe. Yet even now they are barely scratching the surface of the full potential of the blockchain.
Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Citizens of countries all over the world have varying attitudes about cryptocurrency. These attitudes and sentiments can be very significant to the future adoption of cryptocurrencies because politicians and regulators tend to act in consideration of the collective opinion of the public. Some countries were more accommodating at first but then became stricter, despite positive public interest, basically saying they are still not sure about the possible consequences and benefits of the technology. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Estonia
Surprisingly enough this small Baltic nation has gained a reputation for being quick to accept technological innovation. Estonia has a tech-friendly government eager to accommodate the innovative use of cryptocurrency in fields ranging from blockchain technology for healthcare and banking services; and even granting citizens the right to become what is known as “e-Residents”.
As e-Residents, Estonian citizens and businesses are provided with digital business authentication. It is also one of the first countries to employ the use of a blockchain-based e-voting service that enabled people to become shareholders of NASDAQ’s Tallinn Stock Exchange.
This fascinating and highly innovative country is now host to a number of Bitcoin ATMs and startups, like Paxful. They are cryptocurrency friendly, and cryptocurrency user friendly as well. Estonia also has highest internet penetration rates in the world.
Estonia may be a fine place to consider basing your ICO due to the friendly legal and regulatory environment.
This and a lot more you can learn on our website: www.ubai.co! “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The United States of America
The USA is the world’s dominant superpower, and it should come as no surprise that it has the highest number of cryptocurrency users in the world. It also has the highest bitcoin trading volume and the highest number of bitcoin ATMs.
Powered by Silicon Valley, which is home to a lot of cryptocurrency and blockchain startups, the US stands at the forefront of all things relating to cryptocurrency worldwide. Many other nations are planning to follow the US lead concerning cryptocurrency regulations. This means the USA will serve as the testing ground for cryptocurrency and crypto-regulation in the years to come. This is likely where the future regulatory framework will take shape.
Bitcoin in particular has shown massive growth in the US. This can only be interpreted as a strong tailwind for a positive regulatory environment because the population at large supports blockchain technology.
For the moment, due to regulatory paralysis and the resultant legal vacuum, ICOs are strongly advised against raising funds or basing operations in the US. The SEC has been particularly strict in its enforcement of securities and investment law which require an ICO to do an oppressive amount of compliance work. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Denmark
When it comes to technological advancements and the standard of living of its citizens, Denmark is among the world leaders. It is considered one of the most developed countries in the world. It is also at the forefront of countries looking to reduce the use of cash money and advance to the use of 100% digital currency. As such, sentiment among the general public and political sphere actively supports the adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. The only question left is which particular cryptocurrency system to adopt. It is still unclear whether bitcoin is the one, or BTC will mainly just be accepted as a means of exchange. There are also discussions in Denmark about when to redesign its national financial system; this would be a “world first”, and a radical leap forward for cryptocurrencies.
Another fascinating thing is that the Danish Central Bank has declared BTC as a non-currency; meaning its use is not subject to the country’s currency regulations. Some of the top bitcoin startups and exchanges such as CCDEK have their foundations in Denmark.
With its open market and encouraging regulatory framework, Denmark might very well rival Switzerland in Western Europe for the position of the continent’s preeminent ICO and blockchain industry hub. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Sweden
Sweden is quite similar to Denmark, for its social and demographic climate, and also for the government’s desire to eliminate cash. The Swedish Riksbank recently introduced negative interest rates. This can cause a spike in the demand for coins in the near future as citizens look for the best way to preserve their wealth. Negative interest rates like we have seen in Europe and Japan also, actively corrode savers’ wealth because people are actually paying a percentage of their savings to the central bank to hold their cash, in addition to losing out to inflation at the same time.
Sweden has taken the boldest step yet in all of continental Europe to legalize cryptocurrency. The country legalized the use of BTC and other cryptocurrencies as a means of payment by official public declaration. It is however expected that exchanges should file for a license in accordance with AML/CTF and KYC regulations.
Sweden is also home to a number of cryptocurrency startups such as the Safello Bitcoin exchange, and Stockholm-based KnCMiner. The gradually increasing trading volume of cryptocurrency has been a good indicator of the country’s appreciating demand for cryptocurrencies. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The Netherlands
The Netherlands is quite fascinating in its own right. How can a country not be referred to as Bitcoin-friendly when it can boast about having its own “Bitcoin City”? There are over 100 merchants that sell goods that can be purchased with cryptocurrency in Bitcoin City.
There are no regulations restricting the use of BTC in the Netherlands under the Act on Financial Supervision of the Netherlands. This explains why a lot of startups, BTC ATMs, and even a Bitcoin Embassy can be found in the heart of Amsterdam (the capital of Netherlands).
The friendly climate for cryptocurrency has led to a lot of very active bitcoin communities across the nation hosting regular meetups and other events. The country’s banking sector has been looking to incorporate BTC and blockchain to reduce costs and improve banking technology. The Netherlands is also a popular location for many important bitcoin conferences and bitcoin companies such as BitPay.
The Netherlands is increasingly becoming a prominent place for ICOs and blockchain related businesses to base their operations. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Finland
Well-known as the home of Nokia, Finland has constantly been at the forefront of technological innovation, just like its other Scandinavian neighbors. The Finnish Central Board of Taxes (CBT) has even gone as far as classifying bitcoin as a financial service, exempting it and cryptocurrency purchases from the VAT. What more could be better for Bitcoin?
Finland also boasts a significant number of BTC ATMs despite its small population. The capital of Helsinki alone is reported to have 10 ATMs for BTC. The country is also home to top exchanges such as FinCCX and Bittiraha.fi. As of January 2016, the most expensive bitcoin sale took place in Finland. It involved the sale of a Tesla Model S worth over €140,000 at Auto-Outlet Helsinki Oy.
Canada
Canada is home to a variety of bitcoin startups and ATMs. It is considered to be more favorable toward cryptocurrencies than the USA. The country has two cities on its eastern and western coasts, Toronto and Vancouver, that are recognized as “Bitcoin hubs”.
Canada has a vibrant cryptocurrency community and is home to startups such as Decentral, the Vanbex Group and a large number of merchants who accept cryptocurrencies as payment. Vancouver is known to have over 20 ATMs while Toronto is well-known for holding large cryptocurrency conferences.
There has been constant growth in cryptocurrency trading volume in the country. Canada might be the best location in North America to base an ICO or operate a blockchain business due to its supportive regulatory environment and a rich ecosystem for cryptocurrency, with human talent, ATMs and other tools, etc. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
United Kingdom
The UK is one of the absolute top financial hubs in the world. It is also a center of innovation. There are a large number of bitcoin and blockchain related startups, BTMs and active communities. All of the previously listed crypto-friendly features make the UK a very desirable environment for bitcoin. The UK has identified the inevitable need for a new payment solution and is gradually bracing itself for a widespread adoption of cryptocurrency in the future. There are even a few local pubs that accept BTC as a means of payment.
It is also interesting to note that the Bank of England has been closely monitoring bitcoin technology and has requested ideas from citizens on the improvement of its monetary system. Bitcoin is presently seen as “private money” where VAT is imposed from suppliers of goods and services that accept cryptocurrency as payment. Profits and losses incurred from cryptocurrency trading are also subject to capital gains tax, just as in the US.
In the UK, it has become increasingly clear that BTC can be part of a bigger story, and the trading volume indicates steady growth. There are not clear laws against cryptocurrencies at the present time. But the lack of regulatory momentum suggests we may see more positive developments soon. One thing to keep in mind, while the Brexit is still in progress, the British government may be more likely to legislate on non-core issues. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Australia
The major banks in Australia have been quite hostile toward bitcoin, but at least the country has removed the burden of “double taxation” on cryptocurrency. This was good news to the local business community because blockchain startups had begun to leave the country as a direct result of unfavorable taxation and closure of bank accounts.
The use of BTC still remains unregulated, there is no law or regulation restricting the use of cryptocurrencies by Australian citizens. Cryptocurrencies are regarded as a form of property in Australia, and purchases with BTC, for example, are referred to as “barter”.
The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), you will remember, is transitioning its CHESS verification system to a blockchain solution that should go live at the beginning of 2019. Cryptocurrencies in Australia are seen a lot like they are in the US. Topics like the imposition of capital gains tax, concern about securities law, the legal debate about using cryptocurrency as payment for goods and services, etc., are all problematic for regulators. While the general population is quite comfortable and supportive of cryptocurrencies and blockchain solutions, at the present it is not a high priority for the government to legislate or regulate. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Tax is of course one of the most important factors in financial matters on both a personal and corporate level. Taxes greatly influence investment decisions and returns, regardless of industry or size. It is one of the first things every individual or group considers before investing. Notably, in Australia and the USA, cryptocurrency gains are treated as capital gains and taxed at up to 50% of the return.
Some countries have low cryptocurrency taxes specifically to encourage the blockchain industry. By offering a more competitive tax rate, countries are implicitly supporting cryptocurrency and actively trying to offer a better return profile than other countries. We will discuss the different taxation regimes in a wide range of countries so you can ascertain the financial advantages and disadvantages of a variety of locations.
Belarus
Belarus charges 0% in taxation until 2023. That exemption is specifically for cryptocurrency exchanges and transactions. This has been done to help Belarus build a special economic zone, referred to as ‘HTP Belarus’. Their goal is to have an economic zone strong enough to compete with the likes of Silicon Valley.
The government of Belarus has also declared smart contracts as legal documents. Anyone looking to set up a blockchain company or a cryptocurrency startup should seriously consider Belarus. It has a supportive regulatory and legal environment which actively encourages the blockchain industry and does not impose punitive taxes upon those inside the industry.
“ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Portugal
Any and all personal income received from cryptocurrency transactions is tax-free in Portugal at the present moment. Income from cryptocurrency trading is categorized as something legally different from traditional income or capital gains.
The Portuguese government stated clearly that any kind of sale of cryptocurrency does not fall under capital income or capital gain. If an individual is however found to be carrying out professional activity, or any business activity related to cryptocurrencies, that is a different matter and such income will be subject to taxation.
From a personal perspective, Portugal is one of the leading countries where an individual can carry out their cryptocurrency transactions and enjoy a decent standard of living in the same country too. However, for ICO and Blockchain businesses it is not recommended to base your operations in Portugal.
China
China is famous the world over for being home to some of the largest cryptocurrency mines and many active cryptocurrency investors; yet at the same time China makes it illegal to conduct any cryptocurrency related business or investment.
But China still has an especially attractive environment for investors. Hong Kong runs on a policy of zero VAT or capital gains tax so it is easy to recommend you base your business there. Hong Kong also stands out as a major financial hub in the heart of Asia. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Netherlands
Actually, Netherlands was the first country to make use of a non-zero tax rate policy for cryptocurrencies. So, it may seem reasonable to expect a discouraging tax situation. But the fact is, Netherland’s tax policy is rather advantageous for cryptocurrency. They have a very simple, low-tax regime.
Cryptocurrency assets need to be declared with the total assets owned by an individual at the beginning of the year to assess their value. Cryptocurrency gains will be taxed at the highest tax bracket for capital income of just around 5%. The Netherlands is strongly recommended as a good country to work and live in, from both a personal and corporate perspective.
Germany
Germany is the economic center of the EU. This makes it a great place to start a cryptocurrency or blockchain company. Financial technology has been thriving there for more than ten years, and Germany has favorable cryptocurrency laws too.
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency assets have a 0% tax when used in making payments due to no VAT levied for making payments with BTC, because there is no “value added” through cryptocurrency as a fiscal product.
Germany offers a moderately compelling case for both blockchain business and individuals. While the tax rate on income at the company level is not competitive, the ability to pay for services in crypto as well as hold cryptocurrency assets and sell them at zero percent taxation rate is compelling. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Let’s talk about the countries that are most accommodating with regard ICOs. Start-up ICO companies, like any company, essentially require three key principles for operation. The first is a sound legal and regulatory framework wherein the rule of law is preserved and business encouraged. The second is the ability to hire or acquire talented individuals to work at the firm. The third and final is the tax system and access to associated financial systems in order to allow the enterprise to succeed.
Estonia
This country is, perhaps surprisingly, widely referred to as the most digital society in the world. Estonians are known to be pathfinders deeply involved in setting up an efficient, secure, and transparent internet ecosystem.
The country ranks first when it comes to the number of ICOs per inhabitant. It has an incredibly supportive tax regime, actually among the most competitive in the world, as well as a deep pool of talent across all areas of the digital spectrum. Estonia offers possibly the most supportive and friendly regulatory and legal framework in the world for an ICO. This, in combination with a zero percent tax rate at both a personal and corporate level, combine to make Estonia one of the single most appealing locations from which you can launch and operate your ICO. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Singapore
Singapore is another important regional hub in Asia for its strong rule of law as well as low taxation. The country offers one of the highest standards of living in the world. It is centrally located in the heart of Asia, so it easy to travel and recruit talent from surrounding countries. At the present there are not any specific regulations targeting the blockchain industry, but it is one of the world’s largest countries by funds raised for ICOs. It has a competitive tax regime in combination with strict AML and KYC. All of these factors make Singapore Asia’s leading location to launch and base an ICO.
The regulatory situation around the world may seem rather complicated. That is because it is. Laws and regulations are changing rapidly all over the world. And the regulatory framework is the most significant point of concern for a startup ICO. You should carefully study not only the current regulations surrounding your particular venture and how its tokenomics affects its classification, but you also need a reasonable sense of where the country is likely to be six months or a year later. Ideally you would base your ICO in a country that is supportive now, and all timeframes into the future with a competitive and legally sound tax system.
Where to Base Your ICO
Slovenia
Slovenia has recently transformed itself into the leading destination for blockchain technology in Europe. The government of Slovenia has placed a strong emphasis on the study of blockchain technology in public administration, and there has been an amazing success rate for ICOs in Slovenia. While the Slovenian government is a leader in terms of adopting cryptocurrencies, its rate of taxation is still considered quite high at 19%, even though that is still lower than other European countries. ICOs are considered to be normal business activities where you are taxed based on the funds received from an ICO less the expenses of doing business.
Switzerland
Switzerland is trying to remain relevant for the blockchain industry and for ICOs. The Swiss finance ministry is actively trying to attract investors to the country. Switzerland is considered a very important crypto location due to fact it was home to four of the largest ICOs in the world. The country is also very attractive to investors because of its friendly regulations and digital expertise. The taxation and regulatory environment is extremely secure and positive towards the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry in general.
