Taxation in the Metaverse – Nexus in Digital Space
Virtual worlds like the metaverse are used today by individuals and businesses for a variety of reasons, from socializing and playing games, to activities such as buying real-world homes, selling artwork, or signing binding contracts. Even though transactions in the metaverse can be worth millions of dollars, it is unclear if, how, and by what authority these transactions could be taxed. This panel will discuss questions around nexus and national taxing authority in a Web3 economy that is run by avatars and fueled by cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Will governments catch up and create regulatory frameworks, or will the metaverse become the next offshore tax haven?
