Legalization of mining

Mining is the process of creating new blocks on a blockchain network by solving complex mathematical puzzles. Mining requires a lot of electricity, as well as vast amounts of computing power that can perform the tasks required for the system. In the world of cryptocurrencies, mining secures transactions and adds new blocks to transaction chains.

Miners use specialized software and hardware to perform calculations and validate the transactions. For their work, miners are rewarded in the form of cryptocurrency, accordingly, all miners use this activity as a source of income.

Difficulties of running a mining business in the Russian Federation

Many cryptocurrency-friendly jurisdictions have introduced licensing of mining activities and special tariffing of electricity payments, due to high consumption level.  Russian legislation does not currently define the concept of mining and its regulation.

According to the Russian law, such activities may fall under the definition of entrepreneurial activity, accordingly, the project must be registered as a legal entity or IE. Within the Russian legal framework, there is no clear fixing of how to keep accounting records and how to pay taxes from mining activities.

Accordingly, there are many legal risks involved in profiting from the sale of mined cryptocurrency. Our company develops and supports the implementation of the legal structure and contract fastening, which will help to minimize all possible risks, including those related to the payment of taxes.
