Advocate General’s opinion in Bitcoin VAT case

Today the Advocate General’s opinion in the VAT case was presented and we are happy to see that the Advocate General is in favor of VAT exemption. Please note that this is not the final judgement, though the opinion obviously carries a lot of weight.

The Advocate General argues that bitcoin is exempt under 135.e (currency, bank notes etc.). I will write more about the arguments made once there is an English translation that I can quote from.
