Japan Blockchain Association (JBA) has made an impassioned plea to the government for comprehensive crypto tax reforms. Acknowledging the rapid growth and potential of the blockchain industry, the association emphasizes the urgent need for a regulatory framework that promotes innovation while ensuring fair taxation.
As cryptocurrencies continue to reshape the global financial landscape, the JBA’s plea serves as a rallying cry for Japan to lead the way in fostering a more inclusive and forward-thinking approach to crypto taxation.
Gaku Saito, the CEO of Pafin Co., Ltd. and the head of the JCBA’s tax review committee, emphasized the importance of building strong social momentum to advance tax reform with regard to crypto assets at the WebX conference; NFT Studio24 was a media partner for this conference.
He emphasized how crypto assets’ advantages and many use cases are becoming more widely accepted across the nation.

The association also thinks that enacting tax reform recommendations will help the Japanese economy in the long run as well as provide them a competitive edge in the local and global web3 market.
