Singapore Tops List of Crypto-Friendly Investment Migration Destinations
Singapore has emerged as the most preferred destination for crypto millionaires seeking secure and tax-friendly havens to protect their digital assets, according to the recently released Crypto Adoption Index by Henley & Partners.
With a perfect score of 10 out of 10 in the tax-friendliness parameter, both Singapore and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have garnered recognition for their progressive stance on taxing cryptocurrency-related activities.
According to the Crypto Wealth Report, compiled by Henley & Partners, there are approximately 88,200 crypto millionaires worldwide, with nearly half of them, about 40,500 individuals, holding their fortunes primarily in Bitcoin.
The report estimates that a staggering 425 million people globally own some form of cryptocurrencies.
As the cryptocurrency space continues to gain momentum, traders, miners, investors, and entrepreneurs are increasingly exploring investment migration strategies to protect their interests.
Crypto Millionaires Looking to Safeguard their Holdings
Dr. Juerg Steffen, CEO of Henley & Partners, noted a significant surge in inquiries from crypto millionaires in recent months.
These individuals are looking to safeguard their holdings against potential bans on cryptocurrency trading or usage in their home countries and to mitigate risks associated with aggressive fiscal policies targeting digital assets.
In the realm of the global super-rich, the report identifies 182 crypto centi-millionaires, individuals with crypto holdings exceeding $100 million.
Among these, 78 are prominent Bitcoin investors. Additionally, six individuals worldwide have ascended to the coveted status of crypto billionaires, amassing their wealth from various digital assets.
The report did not mention the names of these crypto billionaires.
Singapore Preferred as Safest Option by Crypto Millionaires
Singapore was ranked at top by crypto millionaires who are looking to safeguard their crypto holdings from negative regulations.
With a score of 50.2 out of 60, or 83.76%, Singapore leads the way, followed closely by Switzerland with a score of 78.17%. The UAE secured the third position with a score of 76.17%.
These countries, alongside Hong Kong, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, Malta, and Malaysia, make up the top ten crypto-friendly destinations.
The report also highlights the appeal of countries offering residence and citizenship through investment programs, as these enable cryptocurrency investors to secure residence rights or citizenship in exchange for substantial investments.
