Bitcoin [BTC]: Israel states that the world's largest cryptocurrency is an 'asset' and not a 'currency'

The acceptance and adoption of Bitcoin [BTC] as a mainstream form of payment has been the main focus of a lot of proponents in the space, with some parts of the world leaning positively, while others still considering the largest cryptocurrency as a speculative asset.

The latest country to comment on Bitcoin was Israel, with the country’s highest court ruling that the cryptocurrency was an asset, and not a cryptocurrency. This ruling comes in the wake of Israel’s central bank voicing the same decision about the king coin. Judge Shmuel Bornstein stated,

“The Central District Court in Lod accepted the tax authority’s interpretation, and held that bitcoin is an asset and not a currency, and that the transaction in question is therefore taxable.”

The clincher in the decision was the fact that Bitcoin would be taxable, making it fall directly under the norms of the country’s financial authorities. The status of the world’s largest cryptocurrency is still circumspect in the Reuven Rivlin-led country, but the latest ruling on Bitcoin makes it clear that Bitcoin may never come under the ‘currency’ bracket.

Many cryptocurrency enthusiasts in the country have also opined on the court’s decision, with Itay Bracha, Managing Partner at Israeli law firm, Bracho and Co stating,

“The ruling is a signal to all those who have yet to report cryptocurrency-related profits or based their actions on differing legal advice … The ruling is unequivocal, and since it is not new legalization but a judicial interpretation, it applies retroactively.”

Israel has been on the path to ensure that all cryptocurrency trading is above board and since December 2018, the country has been keeping a sharp eye on any nefarious activities involving digital assets. Persons suspected of shady dealings in the cryptosphere are being sent strict notices to disclose all transactional information, according to reports.

The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige"." patreon.com/Rollie_Quaid https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB-BQKpAVgKeNmBVgaDvehQ/videos?view_as=subscriber Explore the Mind’s 🧠 👁 Eye
