The tax math provides a clear incentive for this. If you own a company and take a huge salary, you’ll pay 37% in income tax on the bulk of it. Sell stock and you’ll pay 20% in capital gains tax — and lose some control over your company. But take out a loan, and these days you’ll pay a single-digit interest rate and no tax; since loans must be paid back, the IRS doesn’t consider them income. Banks typically require collateral, but the wealthy have plenty of that.

It’s clear, though, from aggregate IRS data, tax research and what little trickles into the public arena about estate planning of the wealthy that they can readily escape turning over almost half of the value of their estates. Many of the richest create foundations for philanthropic giving, which provide large charitable tax deductions during their lifetimes and bypass the estate tax when they die.

Remember how banks pay annual interest on your bank deposits? By simply having put aside your money in a bank account, you are guaranteed a regular interest income. Staking works similarly and essentially means keeping aside a certain number of coins or a financial stake, which promotes you to becoming a significant part of the network security infrastructure, which, in turn, means money! Now, there are two types of staking: Proof of Work (PoW): The OG staking, involves solving complex mathematical puzzles, but since it needs enormous amounts of electricity, expensive mining infrastructure, is expensive to the environment, has limited scalability, and not to mention the slow transaction processing speed, an effective alternative was necessary. Proof of Stake (PoS): Does the same job but in an environment-friendly manner. Here, the staker supports a cryptocurrency by creating a block of the same on the blockchain. And since you’re an active node on the cryptocurrency’s structure, you get to earn via transaction fees and rewards for verifying such dealings. A prominent example is the Ethereum network, which is switching to the PoS model this month and offers ETH2 contract stakers to earn as much as 5.83 percent. However, look out for the lock-in period and the nature of cryptocurrency. When it comes to lock-in periods, you are at the risk of losing a portion of your money and automatically ruled out from gaining on tempting and profitable price dips and surges. It is not also unusual for some small alternative currencies to offer extremely high interest to lure in more customers to buy their coins. But consider the long-term prospects of such coins and choose ones that are well-known and reputable. You can also resort to cold staking, or storing your coins in a hardware wallet to avoid instances of cybersecurity breaches. Data indicates that a stake of 10 Ether currently means weekly earnings of 0.0075 ETH, almost equivalent to 17.96 dollars at current prices, and annual earnings of 0.3876 ETH which almost amounts to 933.69 dollars. Here are the top 10 by staked value coins you can consider :
For some of the nation’s wealthiest people, particularly Bezos and Musk, adding corporate taxes to the equation would hardly change anything at all. Other companies like Berkshire Hathaway and Walmart do pay more, which means that for people like Buffett and the Waltons, corporate tax could add significantly to their burden.
