Japan’s FSA Targets Privacy-Oriented Altcoins, Binance Signs Deal with Bermuda and the Market Shows Stability

Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) is pressuring cryptocurrency exchanges to drop privacy-oriented altcoins, according to a piece in Forbes. Coins such as Monero (XMR), Dash (DASH), and Zcash (ZEC) are being targeted as they are sometimes “favoured by criminals and hackers”:

“Sources close to the FSA confirmed that they were taking all available steps to discourage the use of certain alternative virtual currencies that have become attractive to the underworld because they are difficult to track. In September of last year, the European Union’s law enforcement agency, Europol, released a report that warned “other cryptocurrencies such as Monero, Ethereum and Zcash are gaining popularity within the digital underground.” Criminals, who were some of the earliest adopters of Bitcoin, have increasingly dropped that cryptocurrency for transactions in favor of Monero and other less traceable "altcoins."”

Cryptocurrency giant Binance recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Bermuda’s Premier and Minister of Finance, David Burt. Bernews, a Bermudan news outlet, reported on the press conference held on April 27, in which Burt outlined the benefits proposed by Binance in the MOU:

1. Develop its global compliance base in Bermuda, creating at least forty [40] jobs in Bermuda, with at least 30 jobs for Bermudians;
2. Through the Binance Foundation sponsor university-level training for Bermudians in blockchain technology development and compliance in an amount up to US$10 million;
3. Through Binance Labs make up to US$5 million available for investments in new Bermuda based blockchain companies;
4. As soon as practicable, develop a Digital Asset Exchange in Bermuda subject to all required legal and regulatory processes; and
5. Work collaboratively with the Government of Bermuda and all necessary oversight agencies in the development and improvement of a robust legal and regulatory framework.
Coming out of the weekend, the total cryptocurrency market cap is about $430 billion USD at press time. This is roughly $15 billion USD higher than it was going into the weekend. Most of the top coins have remained stable throughout the weekend, following a correction in the market in the middle of last week. EOS (EOS) has notably seen a drop in price of nearly ten percent in the last 24 hours, trading at about $18.75 USD at press time after reaching $22 USD yesterday.

#CryptoCorner; France Cuts Tax Rates, Japanese Exchange Almost as Successful as Stock Exchange Operator and Australian Regulator Talks #Crypto
 


Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC – April 27, 2018 -  Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news reports on what’s driving the cryptocurrency markets with today’s edition of Crypto Corner.

France Cuts Tax Rates, Japanese Exchange Almost as Successful as Stock Exchange Operator and Australian Regulator Talks Crypto

France’s tax rate on cryptocurrency purchases was changed from 45 percent to 19 percent according to a report in Le Monde yesterday. This comes after a decision by the Conseil d’Etat to reclassify profit made from cryptocurrencies as capital gains of "movable property".

“Under this regime, gains from the sale of cryptocurrencies are considered industrial and commercial profits (BIC) in the case of usual activity, and as non-commercial profits (NBC) in case of occasional activity. This classification has specific tax consequences and results in a tax rate of up to 45% for income tax purposes, for the wealthiest taxpayers, in addition to the 17.2 % of generalized social contribution (CSG) also levied.”

According to a piece in Bloomberg, Japanese crypto exchange Coincheck almost earned as much as the country’s top stock exchange operator in the ten months from April 2017 to January 2018.

“Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck Inc. earned an estimated 53.2 billion yen ($490 million) in the 10-month stretch from April 2017 through January, according to its new owner Monex Group Inc. By comparison, Japan Exchange Group, operator of Japan’s biggest stock and derivatives markets, made 71.8 billion yen in the 12-month period that ended in March, it said Friday. The figures illustrate how lucrative crypto-trading can be -- assuming bourses can avoid being hacked.”

This is similar to yesterday’s news of cryptocurrency exchange giant Binance recording a higher profit than Germany’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank in Q1 of this year.

Australian Securities and Investments Commissioner (ASIC) John Price gave a speech at a Sydney FinTech event, wherein he outlined the country’s ICO and Crypto regulations. Price said that while ASIC wants to see new technology succeed, the main priority is to protect consumers:

“We are determined – as are you – to see Australia’s innovative fintech and regtech flourish in the right regulatory environment, and that means maintaining an open mind when it comes to new technologies and ‘early-days’ business models.

But – and this is an important ‘but’ – ASIC must be focused on both protecting Australian consumers and facilitating innovation across the financial services industry.”

The development of innovative technologies like blockchain and ICOs has the potential to revolutionise how our society engages with financial products and services, but with revolution comes risk…”
