Residents of Arizona will be able to pay taxes with Bitcoin, Ripple and Ethereum

Arizona can become the first US state, whose residents will soon be able to pay taxes using cryptocurrency. The corresponding bill was passed by the State Senate this week.

16 senators endorsed the bill, 13 legislators opposed it, but in the end, a three-vote margin was enough to pass the document. Now the bill will be forwarded to the Arizona House of Representatives for further consideration.

How can it change the life in Arizona?

The representative of the Republican Party Jeff Waninger noted that changes in the state’s tax law will make Arizona a comfortable place to live for users of new technologies. He also believes that in this way Arizona sends a signal to everyone in the US and the rest of the world that in the future the state will be open to blockchain and digital currencies.

At the same time, the representative of the Democratic Party, Steve Farley, warns that the bill shifts the “load of volatility” of bitcoin prices to taxpayers who will continue to use the US dollar.

“It would mean that the money goes to the state and then the state has to take responsibility of how to exchange it,” said Steve Farley.


Cryptocurrency Got the Voice of «Virtual Currency Girls»

Not so long ago in Japan a musical group «Virtual Currency Girls» appeared. The girls have already become popular all around the world.

The Virtual Currency Girls have already had their devoted fans. There are eight participants in the pop group. Earlier this group performed under the name «Kaso Tsuka Shojo». Every performer gets the name of one widespread cryptocurrency. There are Bitcoin and Ethereum among them.

The leader of the group, 19-year-old Rara Naruse reported that their musical group is going to shed some light on the Altcoins and block chain. In an interview for Japan Today, Naruse described the objectives of the team. She said that they carefully selected several cryptocurrencies, which would undoubtedly continue to exist in the future. Rara stated that the group strived to expand understanding of cryptocurrencies and block chain with the public through entertainment.


Japan becomes a country where the authorities are loyal to the introduction of cryptocurrencies. Eastern neighbours South Korea and China have applied strict rules. They try to abolish the cryptocurrency movement. On the contrary, the Japanese are open to innovations and easily accept changes.

In addition, the Japanese group “J-Pop” also hopes to spread the deep understanding of the digital currencies among their fans. “J-Pop” was at the peak of popularity in the 1990s. It seems that nowadays the group will be able to announce itself once again and return to show business thanks to cryptocurrencies.

A blockchain-based viral game about buying and breeding cryptokitties occupied 15% of Ethereum traffic in a week, earning almost $ 3 million from fans of virtual pets.

Kittens can be bought on the internal exchange. Until November 2018 a new pet will be generated by the system every 15 minutes. Then the animals will appear only due to the pairing of other individuals. The value of each of them depends on the characteristics that are inherited from the parents. Now, for example, in the game there are only 160 jaguars and 93 maine coons. Also you can find rare species of a vampire or geek and cats, in the creation of which celebrities like Katy Perry and Elon Musk are involved. The Cooldown indicator determines how fast a cat can enter into new relationships.


How much pets cost

The price of the cats generated by the system is determined based on the cost of the last five animals sold. At the time of writing, she ranged from 9 to 13 Ethereum. The cost of the pets created by users is determined by their owners. It gradually decreases, if not willing to buy a cat.

The developers themselves – studio Axiom Zen – earn on the sale of the generated kitties and commission of 3.75% from each transaction.
