The Czech Republic continues to maintain a cautious approach to digital currencies. While the government hasn’t yet attempted to regulate or categorize cryptocurrencies, a potential storm may be brewing among tax authorities - it is likely that they will be classified as personal property, meaning that profit from crypto transactions may become taxable.
As of today, there are 46 cryptocurrency ATMs in the Czech Republic, with 34 located in Prague alone. The highest number of such ATMs - 1965 - is in the U.S. Approximately 76 percent of global ATMs are concentrated in North America.
