In New Hampshire, they can start accepting taxes and fees in bitcoins



    In January, the New Hampshire State Legislature introduced a bill to develop a system for accepting bitcoins to pay taxes and duties. This was announced on Twitter by Barry Silbert , an investor, founder of Digital Currency Group and the Bitcoin Investment Trust.



    The bill is already supported by seven senators. If it is adopted, it will become a precedent, because while cryptocurrencies have not reached such a level of recognition in any country yet.

    Silbert promotes cryptocurrencies and makes initial investments in startups related to this topic. He has invested in more than 40 different bitcoin startups.

    New Hampshire, apparently, has a preoccupation with cryptocurrencies. Startup Lamassu , which was organized in this state in 2013 , has developed small ATMs for accepting bitcoins and offers them to all interested entrepreneurs in addition to cash registers and terminals.
