Tax experts: after the epidemic, governments of all countries may pay more attention to taxing cryptocurrencies

According to Cointelegraph, data from the Asian Development Bank show that the coronavirus epidemic may cause up to US $ 4.1 trillion in damage to the global economy, which is almost equivalent to 5% of global GDP. In this regard, tax experts said that governments will soon seek to use all possible sources of income to balance the budget, including crypto taxation. Paul Beecy, a partner in tax services at Grant Thornton, said that now many parts of the world have raised their awareness of cryptocurrencies, and this year there may be more attention turned to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies tax.
