How to buy EOSIO in Australia
Is EOS a good investment in Australia?
Known as an "Ethereum killer"; EOS is one of the top 50 largest cryptocurrencies by market cap. EOS coin was released to the market in 2017 with the price of $1.52 per coin. It experienced the lowest price of $0.48 in October of the same year. Supporting smart contracts and the flexibility of this coin made it one of the top cryptocurrencies in 2018 when its price mounted to $22.89. It shows how profitable this investment was for its first year. However, it didn't last long, and the EOS price dropped to $2.15 at the end of the same year. The fluctuations in the price of crypto are normal; you can't always forecast the future based on its past. Other factors can help you analyze if it's the right time to buy EOS.
Crypto experts and analysts predict the future of a coin based on some analysis. Although this price prediction is not guaranteed, it can help you decide if EOS might have a bright future as an investment. Cryptocurrency experts believe that the EOS price may be between $19.07 to $22.91 in 2030. They also claim that EOS might be a profitable long-term investment. But in the short-term, it might be risky. However, no one can tell you if your investment is %100 profitable. It’s better to read more about the history of EOS, how you can use it and what top investors tell you about this coin. Furthermore, if you are a beginner, it’s better to have an exit point for your investment; so if the price of EOS dropped to that number, you sell it to prevent losing your money.
What is EOSIO ?
Although many know this blockchain by the name of EOS, the real name of the blockchain is EOSIO, which was designed by Block.one company. EOSIO is a decentralized blockchain network released in 2017. Its system is very similar to Ethereum, but faster, more flexible, and free of charge. These features made EIOSIO more popular than Ethereum, especially the speed of this network, which allows thousands of transactions per second (tps); compared to the 15 tps of the Ethereum system, EOSIO is really a winner. There are other benefits that the EOISIO system has that make it one of the top decentralized blockchains, including being user-friendly and supporting smart contracts and voting, which are predicted to become so useful in the near future.
Is EOSIO 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 EOSIO 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.
Analysts have predicted price growth for both the EOS and Cardano in the future. They are performing very close to each other as an investment. They both accept smart contracts and have the same usage. However, Cardano is a bigger network and the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Therefore, it may be one step ahead of EOS.
It is estimated that 0.9 million people, 3.4% of the total Australian population, currently own at least one form of cryptocurrency.
One of the points that EOS has among most of the decentralized blockchain networks is that all the transactions on this platform are free of charge.
