“We are studying the experience of other countries.

There can be either such imputed taxes, as is done in our neighboring country - Kazakhstan, or it can be taxes on the difference between entering a crypto asset and leaving it, as is done in cases of investments in financial instruments, ”RIA Novosti quotes the minister .

He added that so far the issue of taxation of cryptocurrencies in Russia is under discussion.

Earlier, Siluanov said that the Ministry of Finance opposes the ban on mining in the country.

According to him, the department wants to legalize this area and introduce taxation.

The Minister also noted that the Ministry of Finance supports the position of the Central Bank on the need to ban payments in cryptocurrency within the country, by analogy with payments in foreign currency.
