NFTs news

  • The Austrian Post, the country’s postal service, launched a new product category called Crypto stamp art (CSA) which focuses on digital collecting, but the would-be owners must first purchase a physical stamp to get its NFT twin on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, according to Post & Parcel. The digital collection boxes are set to launch on July 22.
  • Vincenzo Sospiri Racing, multi-Championship winning GT team, said that with support from Lamborghini Squadra Corse, and in partnership with corporate NFT platform, Go2NFT, they are piloting a new scheme that will enable the team to trial Go2NFT technology to certify racing car parts for authentication and auditability.

Taxes news

  • The UK government is seeking views on the taxation of cryptoasset loans and staking within the context of DeFi. They said that they are particularly interested in ascertaining whether administrative burdens and costs could be reduced for taxpayers and whether the tax treatment can be better aligned with the underlying economics of the transactions involved.

Legal news

  • The Court of Justice of São Paulo – one of Brazil’s highest courts – has frozen some USD 85m worth of crypto and fiat in the customer accounts of Capitual, a domestic neobank and the former partner of the crypto exchange Binance. Capitual and Binance have been locked in an increasingly bitter legal struggle since the middle of last month. The Brazilian firm had previously acted as a bridge between the Binance platform, but legal wrangling between the parties has left customers unable to access their coins for several weeks. Globo reported that Binance has assured clients in Brazil that its new partner, LATM Gateway, is currently being integrated – and that withdrawals and deposits will be resumed soon.

Regulation news
