Legalizing Cryptocurrencies in Uzbekistan

Thursday 5 July 2018

(Bitcoin news) — The executive power in Uzbekistan has advanced towards legalizing cryptocurrencies and implementing blockchain technology in both government and economy. A new decree signed by President Mirziyoyev mandates licensing for trading and other activities related to the circulation of digital coins. The document also calls for regulating crypto mining and smart contracts.

Following in the footsteps of Belarus, Uzbekistan has taken steps to legalize its crypto sector as part of the efforts by the government to boost the country’s development through innovation. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has issued a special decree that will help prepare the legal ground for the implementation of blockchain technologies, the circulation of cryptocurrencies, and the regulation of mining.

The decree states that currency operations conducted by corporate entities and natural persons, including non-residents, related to the circulation of crypto assets, are not subject to taxation, and incomes received from such operations are not part of the taxable base. Also, crypto transactions by licensed entities will not be governed by the provisions of the regular currency law, according to the president.
