On September 27, the first large-scale Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Baku, dedicated to blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and ICOs will start in Azerbaijan. Its participants will include well-known specialists and gurus of the cryptocurrency market, developers, entrepreneurs, representatives of payment systems, foreign experts.
Cryptocurrency and blockchain promotion
Despite the growing demand for cryptocurrencies in 2017, Azerbaijan does not have laws to regulate the cryptocurrency activity. In other words, Bitcoin and altcoins are in the grey area.
At the same time, the authorities of Azerbaijan are taking steps to solve issues connected with the legal status of the field.
For instance, the Center for the Study and Development of the Market for Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technologies was established in the country in April of 2018. The organization will carry out the awareness-raising work, develop offers on the cryptocurrency market regulation, provide consultancy services, and run special trainings for journalists. Also, administration of the Center plans to attract international blockchain experts to consult financial institutions concerning the advantages of distributed ledgers and token sales.
In May, the Ministry for taxes announced that all cryptocurrency deals would be taxable. Legal entities will pay a corporate income tax for cryptocurrency operations, and physical entities – a personal income tax.
Such actions of the authority speak for the intention to create a stable and reliable environment for running a crypto business in the country.
