The X8 project has been involved in identifying possibilities and opportunities that exist in Switzerland in the area of cryptocurrency business for several months. X8 project infrastructure requires a set of various elements in order to perform cryptocurrency operations as shown in the X8 project plan.
Comparative research for the best options, legal framework, license requirements and the most appropriate canton choice with optimal development strategy was conducted in order to find the best long-term position. The goal of this is to implement all necessary steps towards establishing a complete corporate infrastructure licensed to carry out all activities related to the launch of the X8currency TGE and X8currency operations in the crypto market.
REGISTRATION AND COMPANY TAXATION
The company will be called X8 Capital AG and will be registered in the Canton of Zug as it is the best canton to carry out cryptocurrency related activities. It is globally known under the name Crypto Valley. Zug is one of the cantons with the lowest taxation in Switzerland as well.
The Swiss Corporate Tax Reform (CTR III) has recently approved that the corporate income tax rate be reduced from the current maximum rate of 14.6% to approximately 12% (including federal tax). Other adjustments on annual capital tax are planned in Zug.
Another part of the package is the introduction of a patent box regime as the concept of an R&D super deduction to promote innovation and R&D activities in Switzerland including such as in treasury and group financing. The Canton of Zug in this respect is strategically positioned to facilitate a long-term environment where blockchain ideas can develop and products can be created quickly.
The working model of X8currency includes multi-account and multi-broker operations, including foreign exchange activities, cryptocurrency exchange activities, gold trading, asset management and all necessary individual elements for the Automatic Reserve Management AI (ARM AI) to connect the processes of the X8currency into one workflow.
The project needs to operate as a Swiss company with a broker license (BOVV / External Asset Management) and to carry out activities in the Para-Banking sector under this license including the following:
- Managing assets on behalf of customers (discretionary or nondiscretionary basis);
