Hong Kong Court Declares Crypto as Property in Case Involving Defunct Gatecoin

Justice Linda Chan, who managed the case, reportedly said Hong Kong, in line with other common law jurisdictions, defines "property" broadly as "intended to have a wide meaning". There have been similar regulations in Mainland China, while the US Internal Revenue Service treats crypto as property for tax. A government-funded law commission in the UK found crypto can be classified as a new type of property.
