The much-awaited infrastructure bill is now a reality. On Monday, the United States President Joe Biden ceremoniously signed the bill in front of many important members of the senate, media, and workers. For a long time, the crypto community vehemently spoke against the bill. However, their voices were eventually shut down, including those of pro-crypto senators.
The new Infrastructure Bill will have widespread repercussions on the United States of America and the world. The bill focuses on funding for electronic vehicles, roadways, alternative power resources, and other infrastructural developments. While most people do not have any problem with these segments, crypto communities have shown displeasure at the revised taxation in crypto. One senator went on to call it ‘unworkable’ and ‘too expensive’ for crypto industries.
Under the revised taxation law, anyone who takes part in a digital asset transition worth $10,000 or more will have to report the transaction to the Internal Revenue Service. Setting the cap at an amount of $10,000 will cause severe problems for crypto investors. Reporting every single transaction would slow down processes many times over.
The overall message of the Infrastructure Bill is not positive for the cryptocurrency industry. Even when some senators tried to amend the station segment, it was never approved. It means businesses dealing with crypto will now have to face stricter regulations. Now many politicians and citizens are calling for crypto-friendly leaders who can help mitigate this bill’s disadvantages.
