More Information Surrounding the Proposed Bill
The steps for reporting mining activities to the authorities are voluntary, as reported by Forklog (a cryptocurrency news outlet). The steps are controlled by a command given by the Minister for digital development. Ekaterina Smyshlyaeva (a member of the Parliament) disclosed that just one out of every three mining organization functioning in the nation were documented.

Lawmakers believe that the Un-regulated utilization of power by miners holds a big danger to the power security of the country (Kazakhstan). Ekaterina also said that the present legislation doesn’t control the system for the selling of minted crypto, or the part to be played by the financial service providers and the flow of electronic properties in the nation.

The States Revenue Committee revealed that the cryptocurrency mining establishment in Kazakhstan added about $1.5 million to the budget of the state during the first three months of this year (2022). In response to this, the President of Kazakhstan appended the bill to increase the tax to be paid by crypto miners. However, this tax will be dependent on the average amount cost of electricity used for mining BTC (Bitcoin) and other cryptos.
