In 2020, many industries are hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. But this certainly does not apply to the gaming industry, which just because of the consequences of the pandemic was able to very significantly increase its indicators.

The SuperData Research report allows for a better understanding of the details, although it concerns exclusively digital sales, that is, it does not affect more than half of the console games market.

So, the gaming industry in its digital form last year showed an increase of 12% to $ 126.6 billion. More than half – 73.8 billion – fell on the mobile segment, and it just grew slightly less (by 10%).

Revenue from sales of games for the PC amounted to 19.7 billion dollars, games for consoles – 33.1 billion. Again, we are talking only about digital sales.

The source also notes that the lion’s share of the digital gaming industry’s 78% revenue comes from free games. At the same time, revenue here grew by 10%, while revenue from premium games grew by 28%, to $ 24.5 billion.

It can also be noted that 34% of all revenue in the premium games segment was brought by 10 projects: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, FIFA 20, GTA V, NBA 2K21, NBA 2K20, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Animal Crossing: New Horizons , Cyberpunk 2077, Sims 4 and DOOM Eternal.

Revenue from VR games grew 25% to $ 589 million, but this is clearly thanks to just one game – Half-Life: Alyx – which earned more than all VR games combined in 2019.

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget through taxes on crypto companies

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget

The European Commission’s proposal to tax cryptocurrencies, which could be passed as early as this week, suggests that taxes on cryptoassets will help raise up to an additional 2.4 billion euros ($2.5 billion). The proposal, which the Commission plans to adopt this week, purports to close the “regulation gap” and eliminate tax evasion opportunities for crypto investors, as well as ensure that EU member states avoid budget deficits due to low tax collection.

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget through taxes on crypto companies

Crypto service providers in the EU will have to report to national tax authorities, according to the draft, which defines crypto assets as “issued in a decentralized manner, as well as stablecoins and certain non-functional tokens.” For the rules to apply, the crypto asset must be used as a means of payment or investment, with possible exceptions for “restricted network and certain utility tokens” (whatever that means).

A European Commission spokesman told The Block he could not confirm or deny any of the details in the document.

Defining a taxable event in the cryptocurrency markets is likely to remain challenging as negotiations over the proposal develop within the EU institutions. However, by specifying service providers in the directive, the authorities will have easier access to the necessary information about users of cryptocurrencies, as the Commission seeks to minimize the “administrative burden” for the industry.

Since the proposal is a directive and not a regulation (as is the case with tax matters in the EU), Member States will be free to decide how to implement the provisions. It also complies with internationally recognized reporting standards for the taxation of cryptocurrencies, as defined in a report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development published in October this year.

The draft proposal includes crypto assets in a series of EU directives on administrative cooperation, which describe how member states should communicate and exchange certain information among themselves for tax purposes. Since direct taxation policies have not yet been harmonized across the economic bloc, tax reporting directives make it harder for citizens to evade taxes in other countries.

The document indicates that some rules will begin to apply as early as 2025, and most will come into force in 2026.
