A new survey by the Korea Social Vision Research Institute (KSOI) and published by Hankook Ilbo has revealed that most South Korean citizens want the government to tax cryptocurrencies.
The results of the survey conducted on September 17-18 showed that only 33% of Koreans were against the idea of taxation. More than 1,000 adults participated in the study, according to KSOI. 55.3% of respondents also answered that “we should pay tax on cryptocurrencies”. The rate of those who chose the “I don’t know” option was stated as 11.5%. As can be expected, it was the young population who were most opposed to the introduction of tax on cryptocurrencies.
South Korea’s crypto tax law was introduced this year and was scheduled to go into effect in October. However, due to the efforts of politicians, the law was delayed until January 1, 2022. After this law goes into effect, earnings from cryptocurrencies will be classified as “miscellaneous income” and will be taxed. Additionally, taxation will apply to income from mining and ICOs.

As a result of the figures, it was seen that the country with the highest vaccination rate in the world was Portugal. Approximately 84% of the country’s 10.3 million population is fully vaccinated. Considering this rate, it would not be wrong to say that the country’s 85% of its population has reached the target of vaccination. Restrictions in the country are expected to be relaxed after the target is reached.
In the ranking of vaccination rates, Portugal is followed by the United Arab Emirates with 80.8%. Singapore is in third place with a 77.3% vaccination rate. China is in fourth place with 70.8%, while the United Kingdom is in fifth place with 65%. According to research, in parallel with the increasing vaccination rates, the rate of Covid-19 infection and hospitalizations due to the virus reached the lowest level of the last 18 months in Portugal. A COVID health card is required to enter places in the country such as bars, restaurants, cultural venues. It is stated that this situation plays an important role in slowing down the epidemic.
Rear Admiral Henrique Gouveie e Melo, a navy officer who is one of the biggest supporters of the vaccine campaign, also said, “We won a war.” Gouveie e Melo has appeared on many television shows during the pandemic and has addressed public concerns about vaccines. In February, he assumed the responsibility of vaccine distribution and became a recognized face of the whole country. Portugal had 891 cases on Wednesday, September 22, with only 8 deaths. It was announced that the number of people hospitalized due to Covid-19 was 426.
The internet has now become an integral and indispensable part of our lives. With the spread of the Internet, the services we receive from the Internet have increased.
