ADA is a popular digital asset on the market that is actively in use. Its history and the predictions of its future show that ADA can be a good option for people who consider buying a crypto and take their first steps to this market.
According to the CRA tax guide, you’re not taxed when you buy crypto with fiat, like Canadian Dollars. This said, even though you don’t pay tax, it’s still really important you keep good records of your crypto transactions so you can keep a detailed account of your cost basis. This lets you calculate accurate crypto gains and losses when you later dispose of your crypto assets. But note that according to the above-mentioned tax guide, buying crypto with another crypto is subject to Capital Gains Tax. The CRA views this as a disposition, meaning you’re getting rid of one asset. It doesn’t matter that you’re using it to buy another.
According to the CRA tax guideline, since cryptocurrency is viewed as a capital asset, when you dispose of it by selling it, swapping it, spending it or gifting it, you’ll owe Capital Gains Tax on any profit you make. Crypto transactions which are considered a disposition in Canada according to the CRA include: Selling crypto for CAD, swapping crypto for another crypto, spending crypto on goods or services, gifting crypto. According to the mentioned guideline, you won’t pay Capital Gains Tax on the entire proceeds when you sell, swap, spend or gift your cryptocurrency, but only the profits from it. Also note that you’ll only pay Capital Gains Tax on half your net capital gain each financial year in Canada.
ADA and XRP are both well-known coins on the market, both are fast, cheap, and energy-efficient. Furthermore, most of the top brands support them as trusted currencies. However, some experts believe that ADA might perform slightly better than XRP in the future because it has a more promising blockchain.
According to the CRA tax guide, you should maintain the following records on your cryptocurrency transactions: the date of the transactions, the receipts of purchase or transfer of cryptocurrency, the value of the cryptocurrency in Canadian dollars at the time of the transaction, the digital wallet records and cryptocurrency addresses, a description of the transaction and the other party (even if it is just their cryptocurrency address), the exchange records, accounting and legal costs, the software costs related to managing your tax affairs.
The future of every cryptocurrency is unpredictable; but experts and analysts believe that Cardano is one of the coins that may perform well on the market in the future.
