10:21Biden’s Tax Plan Could be Bullish for Ethereum but Bearish for Bitcoin
Joe Biden, the United States president, is reportedly in the process of proposing a tax law targeted at the wealthiest Americans. The news surfaced at a bad time for cryptocurrency investors who are not exactly in their happiest of moods, and rightfully so.
The top marginal rate will be increased following the implementation of the new proposal and investment gains laying in the bank account of some of the richest Americans will be taxed. Per the reports, Wall Street noticed a massive sell-off, as Bitcoin dropped significantly.
The new tax proposal remains a threat to Bitcoin whales
The white house press secretary Jen Psaki gave an insight on what the proposal fully encapsulates:
“His view is that that should be on the backs… of the wealthiest Americans who can afford it and corporations and businesses who can afford it,” Jen revealed.
A Crypto user sums this up in a tweet, which read:
“Nice, so Biden wants to double taxes. This is bearish for Bitcoin but bullish for Ethereum. Selling will be too costly in terms of taxes, so we will have to deposit in Defi protocols and borrow cash for expenses.”
Bitcoiners may run to Altcoins
Many cryptocurrency personalities are not taking the news likely. The likes of Luke Martin, a Bitcoiner and crypto developer, quickly hit the block button in Joe Biden’s official Twitter handle in a show of solidarity for Bitcoiners.
In the weeks ahead, it will come as no surprise to see Altcoins spiraling in gains as big whales rush to other altcoins like Ethereum and DeFi tokens to shelter themselves. But an upward correction in Bitcoin’s price cannot be ruled out, as the cryptocurrency market is often unpredictable.
