Chamber of Blockchain and New Technologies

What is CBNT?

Chamber of Blockchain and New Technologies is an initiative of entrepreneurs originated in Polish Biggest Bitcoin forum – forum.bitcoin.pl. On April 26, a similar initiative was announced by cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan. According to the Polish letter of law, the Chamber has statutory possibilities enabling it to represent the interests of the entire blockchain and new technologies industry in talks with government bodies. The broad communication of an idea happened on the February 23th at the premiere of the film title „Krypto” which was presented in the Warsaw LUNA Cinema. It was the Minister Anna Streżyńska who suggested that it might be worth to establish a worthy and trustful legal existence which mighe be representing the environment in talks with the government.

Chamber demands

  • Tax sphere – temporary or total exemption from taxes as it was made in Belarus, issuing a general interpretation or regulation regarding VAT, PCC, PIT, CIT, including clarification of transaction settlement rules for individuals and documentation of costs for entrepreneurs operating using the KPiR.
  • Elimination of interpretations imposing triple taxation of payments made with virtual currencies in the form of taxation with buyer’s income taxes, and twice taxation of the seller for selling goods or services which have been paid using virtual currencies (once from goods, second time for exchanging so acquired virtual currencies).
  • Exclusion of units used in games, including electronic and online – by definition of virtual currencies in AML. For example: replacing magic armor with a magic club, jewel, “gold” – this is neither a tax event nor any other form of law violation. What serves only entertainment can not be treated as a property gain in the real world economy. This way we might also tax income in the Monopoly game and submit it to the AML / KYC rules.
  • Statutory definition of virtual currencies for tax, civil and administrative purposes.
  • Creating a sandbox / sandbox – within which blockchain companies might be able to operate more freely and what might significantly accelerate the development of them. By default, temporarily they will not be unduly restricted by the applicable, obsolete law, which is not adapted to modern solutions and technologies.
  • Introduction of an obligation directed at financial institutions to keep a bank account for enterprises. The bank could not refuse and terminate services provided universally to an entrepreneur, who is also dealing with blockchain and virtual currencies.
  • Enabling the payment of state and local taxes, as well as other charges, eg. for waste disposal – using virtual currencies. Imposing an obligation on public entities to have addresses in virtual currencies and to accept such payments from citizens. This is particularly important because in the country as a result of the policy – foreign capital and restrictions from the KNF and the NBP – there are more and more people deprived of access to traditional banking and soon, apart from financial exclusion, electronic exclusion might take place.

  • Working towards the postulates mentioned in the section “Initial goals and demands.”
  • Conduction of didactic and popularizing activities in the field of blockchain technology and new technologies, which should contribute to the increasing turnover in the industry, as well as significantly reduce costs in the administration and in other branches of the economy.
  • Conducting audits of activities carried out by members – to eliminate practices that are illegal, unethical or inconsistent with accepted canons.
  • Issuing opinions on both technology and the legislative sphere.
  • Conducting arbitration courts – both in disputes between entrepreneurs, including those from outside the industry and the Chamber, but also in disputes between entrepreneurs and consumers.
  • Supporting Chamber members in their activities, facilitating their acquisition of new contacts, searching for business and scientific partners.
