The Finance minister then published an information which consisted the country’s tax code. The information consists of two types of tax brackets 18% and 32% which was disturbing for the cryptocurrency traders of Poland.
The petition is signed by 2,669 people which states that Poland is a wonderful nation that has one of the best blockchain programmers and as a result of the government’s actions this might cause loss to them as well as the traders who are trading in Poland. It also says that blockchain technology is a revolution similar to the internet and they are demanding the abolition of all taxes levied on the crypto markets.
“We want to be active creators of this technology, not just its passive recipients in the coming years, from centralized Polish institutions or foreign entities.” according to the petition.
The Prime minister Mateusz Morawieki said that Cryptocurrency is a “Ponzi Scheme” which means he says it is a form of fraud. But he might be saying all this to change the mind of the poles people from investing in cryptocurrencies.
On Monday the Finance Ministry said on their website that they are trying to achieve a “more convenient” system of taxation for cryptocurrencies.
