Uzbekistan's administration has expanded its cryptocurrency rules with an order ordered by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev. The paper defines words like that as digital currencies asset, exchanges, and miners, and it identifies the company's primary regulating organization.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the President of Uzbekistan, has recently signed an order that expands the legislative regime for the Central Asian country's cryptocurrency sector. Its declared purpose is to advance digital technology, foster entrepreneurs, and enhance regulatory frameworks in this area.

According to Forklog, which cited the documentation, the president's Federal Directorate for Managing Projects has been officially renamed the Directorate for Prospective Initiatives. The NAPP will serve as the country's primary cryptocurrency regulator.

The government entity has been responsible for implementing state policy in the cryptocurrency sector and protecting shareholders' interests. And it will be responsible for marketing blockchain technology to the public service and using cryptos to counter financial crimes, terrorist funding, and weaponry development.

Digital investment property is defined in the declaration as intellectual property that constitutes a number of digital recordings in a distributed network that does have worth and a proprietor. People and corporations in Uzbekistan will be able to purchase, trade, and trade cryptocurrency via cryptographic service providers beginning January 1, 2023.

This segment covers cryptocurrency marketplaces, mining pools, cryptocurrency depositories, and cryptocurrency retailers, according to the President's decree. They would be forced to register as local firms and get governmental permits or mining licenses.

Uzbekistan approved cryptocurrency exchanges in 2018, however, the decision to limit local citizens from acquiring crypto in late 2019. They were only able to market. Residents are permitted to trade digital commodities for monetary units on a regulated domestic cryptocurrency exchange in November 2021, whereas non-residents were permitted to swap virtual currencies for international cash.

In Uzbekistan, only licensed companies will be permitted to mine bitcoin. During peak use periods, mining operations would pay a much higher power cost. Illegal mining would be outlawed. The regulation also prohibits the creation of "unknown currencies" as well as any matters involving such.

Uzbeks, like previously, are unable to use and receive currencies as a method of money for products and commodities inside the nation. However, as per the order signed on April 27, 2022, crypto-related transactions of people and businesses would not be taxed.

Participation in a current regulations sandbox established by the NAPP to trial crypto ventures will also be eligible for tax benefits. The organisations engaging in the experiments also will be excluded from these other government's budget responsibilities, such as immigration expenditures besides levies on imported equipment and software.
