The revisions to Kazakhstan’s Tax Code announced last month call for a progressive scale of tax rates for digital mining. According to them, the tax rate for digital mining will now depend on the cost of one kilowatt-hour of electricity.

When using a low tariff rate, a high tax rate will be applied, the upper scale of which reaches 25 tenge (US$ 0.052). As for the case of a high tariff rate with the cost per kilowatt-hour from 24 tenge (US$ 0.05) and above, it will entail a minimum tax rate of one tenge (US$ 0.0021).
