Cryptocurrencies are one of the most popular financial products in the world. They are digital currencies that can be used to send money around the world securely and with ease. However, some countries do not permit their citizens or legal entities to use cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. To solve this issue, Panama has proposed a new law that allows individuals and legal entities in Panama to use cryptocurrencies for payments and purchases.
Panama is trying to make it’s country a more attractive place to conduct cryptocurrency business. The new draft of the law is now available for everyone to see and read. The new law will help regulate the use of cryptocurrencies in Panama.
Gabriel Silva, Panamanian Congressman, presented a bill to regulate cryptocurrencies. He proposed that the government develop a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies, which would include mandatory licensing, registration of owners and operators.
The bill was created to take advantage of the digital currencies boom in the country and regulate their use. It is believed that this move will create more jobs, encourage innovation and increase financial stability.
Cryptocurrencies are not yet entirely legal in Panama. However, the law’s text proposes that Panamanian citizens and legal companies may freely use cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. Digital currencies would be permitted for both physical and electronic transactions.
Additionally, the bill recommends that taxes, administrative fees, and other government obligations be paid in cryptocurrencies. According to Silva, cryptocurrencies are not prohibited in the country, and the bill would not prohibit their use by individuals or companies.
