Chris in Bitcoin Gambling published on 4, January 2017

Bitcoin friendly Denmark is a haven for Bitcoin owners. This is due to the government’s move to legalize the use of cryptocurrencies in the country.

Casino operators and players should be familiar with how they exchange Bitcoins to Danish Krone to take advantage of the situation.

Denmark’s move to legalize Bitcoin

In December 2013, The Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) of Denmark states that Bitcoin will not be part of their regulatory authority. The FSA will not stop anyone from opening a Bitcoin business in the country. The tax board of the county will also not tax Bitcoin transactions. This is due to Bitcoin not having any physical form like gold or silver.

The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority

The chairman of the Tax Board of Denmark has stated: “We see the outcome of bitcoin transactions as a result of something purely private. Therefore, any gains on bitcoin are tax-exempt, and losses are not deductible.”

The move is seen as a step toward Denmark’s goal of making all retail transactions into digital. The government is looking to remove every paper money by 2030.
