What changes are citizens waiting for? The authorities plan to equate digital currencies with securities and impose capital gains tax on them. This step is intended to standardize the terms and conditions of different types of financial assets for ordinary investors.

It is known that if there is a normal conversion of assets, no tax will need to be paid. Also, the new rules will not affect users who have purchased cryptocurrencies on their balance sheets before the law officially came into force.
