How to buy Cardano in Australia
Is ADA a good investment in Australia?
Cardano and its official coin “ADA” is known as the third generation blockchain, which has fulfilled the issues on the previous generations of blockchains. It is now faster and cheaper than Bitcoin and Ethereum. But that’s not the only benefit that this coin has. There are other factors to check to find out if Cardano is a good investment. One of them is its performance over the years. ADA was released as the native token of Cardano in 2017 with the price of $0.024, which was the lowest price of this token. Very soon the price rose up to $3 in 2021, which shows this coin was a good long-term investment.During this period, ADA had many fluctuations, but analysts always had positive opinions about this coin.
One important thing to consider is that no one can guarantee if the future of a coin is positive because everything in the world of cryptocurrencies is volatile and risky. However, the price predictions of a coin can help you see how positive the analysts and experts think about the future of a coin. Many experts have predicted the future of ADA until 2030 between $3 to $5. Thus, considering a long-term investment, check the price of ADA for the day you are buying and check the future prediction for up to 5 years later. Think about the risks and choose an exit point for your investment. These steps can help you have a good investment.

Is Cardano legal to buy in Australia?
Yes. According to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), cryptocurrencies are digital tokens. They are a type of digital currency that allows people to make payments directly to each other through an online system. Cryptocurrencies can be used to buy and sell things but they are not widely accepted as a means of payment. According to the above-mentioned explanation by the RBA, in Australia the prices of goods and services are measured in Australian dollars. While some businesses may accept cryptocurrencies as payment, they are not commonly used to measure and compare prices. So, while cryptocurrencies can be used to make payments, currently their use as a means of payment is limited and they do not display the key characteristics of money. However, there is one type of digital currency that could be considered money which is digital currency issued by the central bank.
Is Cardano taxed in Australia
Yes. According to the Australian Government Taxation Office, cryptocurrencies are treated as property and subject to Capital Gains Tax (CGT). So, Crypto investors have to report capital gains and losses within their Income Tax Return, and pay Income Tax on any net gains. The percentage of Income Tax they pay is the same as the Personal Income Tax rate, starting only from earnings above $18,201. According to the mentioned guideline, the tax treatment of your crypto assets will typically depend on whether you are seen as an individual investor or a trader making a regular income. If you hold shares as an investor, your shares are assets and are subject to capital gains tax when you sell them. If you are a share trader, your shares are treated like trading stock in a business and your gains are treated as ordinary income.
