Rapid evolution of digital technologies in the last two decades gave rise to new types of assets based on distributed ledger technology. Commonly referred to as cryptoassets, they include varieties of digital currencies, utility tokens, security tokens, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The use of cryptoassets in various transactions by individuals and corporations is growing fast. This has also led to the emergence of a parallel financial system, known as decentralised finance (DeFi), and new financial instruments that have no analogues in the traditional financial systems. A number of central banks are now considering the possibility of the issuance of a central bank digital currency (CDBC) backed by a public authority. Cryptoassets and associated transactions do not always neatly fit into existing national and international tax law. This has created challenges for tax administrations all over the world in terms of monitoring and ensuring tax compliance in relation to cryptoassets.
