Hello Geeks

I need your feedback and opinion on below mentioned scenario:-

I am planning to setup a IT Company with focus on cryptocurrency and plan to do below mentioned activity:-

1. Setup my own small mining farm (like 10 to 20 miners)
2. Start a Cloud mining venture like Genesis Mining and sell out Cloud Mining contracts by leasing my miners.
3. Other IT activities.

Factors to consider while choosing a destination are:-

1. Low tax rate
2. Crypto friendly environment
3. Preferably low electricity costs
4. Muslim friendly country where veil & Hijab is allowed.
5. Easy immigration for Startup Entrepreneurs

Thank you.  Smiley

Check Serbia.

1 - Lowest Tax in addition to tax deductions and subsidies for investors, please check > http://ras.gov.rs/invest-in-serbia/why-serbia/financial-benefits-and-incentives
2 - Crypto friendly legal framework, for more details you can contact their local Bitcoin association > office@bitcoinasocijacija.org
3 - Cheapest electricity in the area
4 - In addition to Muslims, a sort of hijab is also worn by a number of older ladies and grandma's, cities such as Belgrade or Novi-Sad also have Syrian and Iraqi communities
5 - Simple immigration, please check this short video > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m1PnY1Wiu4

Government agency to contact for details > office@ras.gov.rs , +38111-339-8900
Easiest is to hire a local investment lawyer who can assist, preferably one recommended by a local Bitcoin association who is familiar with crypto bussines.

Just a word of advice from myself, you should probably set up those machines to mine for yourself. I think people in general are weary about the idea of cloud mining. After all, why would they pay less for something that has the potential to make the owner more money? Furthermore, many other cloud mining companies have been exposed as scams in the past. Be a little cautious of how you approach the situation.

If you want to look for a place, ideally, you'd go somewhere North to set up, especially where it's a little cooler. You'll reduce the costs that you pay for cooling. Furthermore, the housing prices as you go further north and into the cold, I'm sure, would start dropping drastically, so keep that in mind.

Pretty much, the government is trying to make it a lot easier for someone who's not from Serbia to start out a business, and that subsidies are humbly given out to all foreign investors. You have nothing to worry about it being crypto friendly, I don't think that government has any plans considering crypto. As player514, summer can get pretty hot and winters quite cold, so you can balance those two out. Freedom is something that's of abundance here, no one will bother you for whatever you're wearing or however you look as long as you're a nice person. Also, if you're interested, min wage is quite min and there are plenty of people that are more than ready/capable to work if you're not bringing your own team. Good luck.

Some Arab countries have a very low cost for electricity so having mining farms down has to be very profitable, the problem is the heat
Yes but they don't have any clear position and as they are kingdoms , you can expect anything anytime, not business friendly.

I think Sweden is the most suitable country for mining because it is one of the cold countries of Europe, additional costs such as cooling are reduced
What is the cost of electricity in Sweden?
Is Cryptocurrency mining legal in Sweden?
What is the taxation?

Trust me when i tell you...Taxes are here...20% for company...they will add you more taxes to pay because they "forget" to tell you. Electricity is here 0.17c when you spend more over 1650kw, basically 150$ per miner, industrial electricity is not that much from 0.17 maybe 1-2c less... Only thing about crypto..That our national bank has said is "Bitcoin is not currency".

So it means that they have a unregulated status...

Yes, totally. Bitcoin is not regulated here at all. But there is no really much use of it at all in therms of: You can go buy coffee, bread, dinner, flowers etc. Well that looks much better option then Serbia, but not sure what are electricity rates there.

You would need to sell it(convert it to fiat EUR) then convert that to RSD(Serbian Dinar), and after that you can use it. But not sure how does that reflect doing that as company, how much taxes you need to pay for that, does this act look as "Foreign Income", since its Bitcoin involved, and not "Doing modeling job, or working for someone"

Exactly, that's what i am talking about. As a foreign entrepreneur when i come to your country i need to have clear understanding. Under current scenario when major governments all over world are cracking down on crypto i want to move to a country which accept it as a legal work.

Out of pure curiosity, what's wrong with where you're based now?

Despite the EU, there's incredible variance in tax rates and no doubt power costs too. One country may be totally viable, the one next door hopeless.

The obvious one, though not EU, is Belarus as they're going full tax free crypto but it doesn't sound like a fun place to live.

The number one thing by a long way is surely power costs. In that case I think it's Bulgaria that's the cheapest.

The place where i live is ruled by King, so they can change laws anytime specially as its unregulated at this moment.
Whats the legal status of bitcoin in Bulgaria?
