Bank of Brazil Says Citizens Can Pay Taxes with Crypto
Banco do Brasil (BB), Brazil’s largest public bank, has enabled the payment of taxes with cryptocurrencies, the bank said in a statement on Friday.
The service is only available to customers with cryptocurrencies deposited with Bitfy, a startup specializing in blockchain solutions in which BB’s corporate venture capital arm has invested.
Other Bitfy clients – such as financial institutions and fintech companies – will also be able to allow their users to pay taxes and other obligations using the agreements signed by BB with various public service entities, the bank said.
DBS Bank to offer cryptocurrency trading in Hong Kong
Singapore state-owned megabank DBS Group is planning to expand its cryptocurrency services to Hong Kong as the Chinese territory pushes to become a digital asset hub.
DBS Bank plans to apply for a license to allow it to offer crypto trading services to Hong Kong customers, Bloomberg reported on Feb. 13.
“We are planning to apply for a license in Hong Kong so that the bank could sell digital assets to our Hong Kong customers,” DBS Bank Hong Kong CEO Sebastian Paredes said.
Paredes noted that DBS welcomes new crypto-related policies in Hong Kong and is also “very sensitive” to the risks associated with digital assets. The bank is willing to become one of the first lenders offering crypto in Hong Kong once the regulations are fully clear and DBS “understands exactly the framework,” he added.
