In other news related to cryptocurrencies, the Japanese government is contemplating changing the way in which cryptocurrency investors in the country are taxed. Due to the progressive rate formula currently used, investors in the country could be taxed up to 55% on the profits obtained.
However, the Deputy Prime Minister of Japan, Taro Aso, intends to eliminate the progressive rate at a constant rate. During the meeting of the budget committee of the upper house that was held on June 25, Aso said:
“The benefits obtained from cryptocurrency transactions should be changed from current ‘miscellaneous income’ to ‘separate tax return’.
The global financial consultancy, PWC, points out that in Japan “capital gains on sales of certain securities (including stock / shares in corporations, warrant bonds, etc.) are taxed separately from other sources of income at a fixed rate of 20,315 % (that is, 15.315% of national taxes and 5% of local taxes for residents) “.
Technically, at the time of writing the BTC / USD trades at $ 6,217, and the trend is somewhat bullish. The stochastic has left the oversold region and is currently at 36%. On the other hand, the MACD is slightly in the negative territory, which shows that there is some selling pressure.
The price must overcome the resistance at $ 6,280 to pave the way for a rise above the key level of $ 6,300. The bulls must also maintain support at $ 6,200 and $ 6,160 to avoid falling into the immediate demand zone at $ 6,080.
