How to buy eCredits in Australia
Is ECS a good investment in Australia?
The eCredits Ecosystem is a decentralized, blockchain-based ecosystem with its own native,
usable cryptocurrency, called eCredits (ECS). According to the official website of eCredits, by
using the eCredits Blockchain, local and regional micro-ecosystems will be able to develop,
provide, and sell services and goods. This movement will be supported by the eCredits
ecosystem, which aims to provide a platform for this aim. These services are designed to aid
micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) in competing on an equal footing or even
surpassing larger market participants. As a result, local businesses will be able to connect with
their customers on a whole new and direct level. This will give local suppliers opportunities to
reward their customers by enabling them to earn discounts and bonuses through repeated
purchases. Since eCredits ecosystem is built on and powered by blockchain technology, which
is by its very nature decentralized and secure, it also supports diversity and incorporates social
values like equality into its functionality. With regard to making purchases from small businesses
and retailers, eCredits wants to become the method of choice for customers. The overall goal of
eCredits is to encourage local shopping, strengthen neighborhood communities, and promote
more environmentally friendly behaviors

Is eCredits 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 eCredits 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.
eCredits are available for less than one dollar. In this case, the minimum number of eCredits
you can probably buy is determined by the minimum purchase amount that your exchange
allows. The minimum payments start at $10 in our exchange.
It is estimated that 0.9 million people, 3.4% of the total Australian population, currently own at least one form of cryptocurrency.
Users of eCredits use an eWallet app, which simulates a non-custodial cryptocurrency
wallet. This means that only you have access to your assets and can store them.
Nobody else can access or restore your private key, and only you are permitted to send

inaccessible. This eWallet also allows users to connect with third party centralized or
decentralized applications or exchanges. Please note that in order to ensure your
assets’ security, User Account, Secret Phrase and the Private keys should be kept
personal and you may not share your credentials with anyone. You are solely
responsible for remembering, storing, and keeping your credentials in a secure location;
therefore, it is recommended to back up your information so that you can safely retrieve
them in case it was lost.
