How to buy Matic in Australia
Is Matic a good investment in Australia?
Matic became a popular coin in 2021, which was a bad year for most cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin. Unlike most of the cryptocurrencies that were experiencing a decline, Matic could stay stable; and in a short time, its price increased. That’s why most people started buying Matic, and this token became one of the best tokens on the market. Matic's initial price in 2017 was $ $0.013. The fluctuations of the Matic price weren’t that much until 2021 when the price rose to $1 for the first time in its history. It recorded the highest price of $2.874 at the end of 2021 and then started to fall under $1 again. MATIC was trading for around $0.75 as of September 2022.
Investing in crypto is not possible if you can’t imagine what may happen in the future. However, it’s not clear for any of the cryptocurrencies, and no one can guarantee any predictions for its future. But analysts and crypto experts can give you hints about the future of a coin like Matic. Most experts and top investors believe that MATIC's price will increase in the long term. Therefore, they think this crypto might be a profitable long-term investment. They have expected the price of MATIC to be between $1.97 to $2.27 until 2027.
What is Polygon ?
Polygon is a cryptocurrency network that runs as a sidechain alongside Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 under the name of the Matic network. Later in February 2021, Matic was rebranded to Polygon. Now the Polygon is known as the network name, and its token is called Matic. Polygon was created by a group of Indian developers to help Ethereum expand in size, and increase its security and usefulness. Furthermore, Polygon is the home to a range of decentralized apps. People can participate in different actions on this platform, such as playing games, joining virtual worlds, creating smart contracts, and participating in various financial services. The aim of creating such a platform was to improve the speed of Ethereum-based platforms and reduce the costs of transactions on this network.

Is Matic 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 Matic 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.
