How to buy Celsius in Australia
Is CEL a good investment in Australia?
CEL coin was released to the market in December 2018 with an initial price of $0.026. It didn’t have
many fluctuations for almost two years. It was in November 2020 when it finally could reach higher than
$1. Meanwhile, 2021 was a better year for CEL holders because the CEL price reached its highest value
of $8. As the numbers show, the CEL owners had increased their wealth eight times in one year, which
was a surprising profit. However, the CEL price dropped and ended the year at $3.82. CEL value had
many ups and downs in 2022, but it never rose more than $4 and ended the year at $0.5.
Investing in cryptocurrency is very risky. People would like to know if the future of the CEL token will be
profitable or not. The most important thing to know is that no one can forecast the future of a
cryptocurrency. Like everything else, it can’t be foreseen. But to make it easier for the investors to
decide on buying a coin, analysts and crypto experts usually give price predictions based on the analysis
they do. They think the price of CEL tokens might reach $13 by 2025. The analyses also predict that this
coin might have a price of $19 by 2030. However, you should still consider that these are just predictions
and you should not do any investment only based on these numbers.
What is Celsius ?
Celsius is a peer-to-peer lending platform launched in 2018. It is created to facilitate the process of
borrowing and lending using blockchain. In this network, users can put CEL tokens as collateral, receive
fiat currency, and pay back with a small fee. The lenders are rewarded with CEL tokens. Furthermore,
the Celsius network has an appealing loyalty program for its users. Members who reach a higher level in
this loyalty program will receive rewards or discounts on their loan interest.
Is Celsius 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 Celsius 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.

According to the crypto asset transactions guide by the Australian Government, Capital Gains Tax should be considered when you dispose of your crypto asset. If you make a capital gain after a disposal, you may pay tax on it. A transaction involving a disposal takes place when you do any of the following: sell a crypto asset, gift a crypto asset, trade, exchange or swap a crypto asset for another crypto asset, convert a crypto asset to Australian or foreign currency (otherwise known as fiat currency), and buy goods or services with a crypto asset.
According to the crypto asset record keeping guide by the Australian Government, you must keep records of each of your crypto assets and every transaction, to work out whether you have made a capital gain or loss. For your crypto assets, you should keep: receipts when you buy, transfer or dispose of crypto assets, a record of the date of each transaction, a record of what the transaction is for and who the other party is (this can just be their crypto asset address), exchange records, a record of the value of the crypto asset in Australian dollars at the time of each transaction, records of agent, accountant and legal costs, digital wallet records and keys, a record of software costs that relate to managing your tax affairs.
