What changes can be introduced? According to Christofanelli, cryptocurrencies should be exempt from property tax and regulation of assets as securities. In addition, cryptocurrency transactions should not be licensed as money transfers to further develop the industry. Bill number 2672 to protect Missouri’s investors, entrepreneurs, and consumers involved in the developing crypto industry has already been registered. The authorities will soon begin discussing the issue and make a final decision.
