South Korea’s Stand

South Korea had planned to impose a 20% tax on cryptocurrency beginning in 2022, however, the plan was pushed back to 2023 because of investor opposition. The implementation of a 20% tax on capital gains over 50 million Korean won US$38,624.95 from stock trading, which was scheduled to begin in 2023, has been postponed until 2025.

President Yoon Suk-yeol earlier stated that the crypto tax shouldn’t be implemented until proper market infrastructure is in place. Now the economic strategy roadmap included Ko’s announcement. The plan stated that the future “Digital Assets Basic Act” will control cryptocurrency development and listing.
