News: Tax Laws Boosting Web3 in Japan

Hey guys. Exciting news from Japan! The government is moving forward with a tax reform that could exempt firms from paying taxes on “unrealized gains” from cryptocurrency holdings.

This could be hugely beneficial to the entire crypto market if it actually passes the Japanese national legislature.
