Is Sandbox 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 Sandbox 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.
