How to buy Binance Coin in Canada
Is BNB a good investment in Canada?
Binance Coin (BNB) was introduced and launched in July 2017 at the initial coin launch event. At the time of launch, each coin was sold for 15 cents. Binance was able to raise a total of around $15 million from this ICO. The value of Binance's native coin, BNB, has increased significantly over time as a result of the company's explosive growth in the cryptocurrency sector.
The price of BNB cryptocurrency in US dollars increased gradually at first, staying below $50 between 2017 and the beginning of 2021. BNB tokens’ high price record reached $24.71 (in January 2018) during the 2017 to 2018 crypto market bull run. Later, in May 2021, the entire cryptocurrency market experienced a significant uptrend, with some cryptocurrencies setting new all-time highs. As a result, on May 10, 2021, the price of BNB increased from under $50 to an all-time high of $690.93, a 460520 percent rise from its price at the time of the ICO. Additionally, BNB was valued at over $100 billion at the time. By the start of 2023, BNB has been trading between about $245 to $310. Some crypto experts believe that BNB has an outstanding potential to reach new heights. They predicted that it could reach about $1,047 by 2025. In spite of all that, this information is not aiming to act as a buying signal or a financial advice. We encourage you to do your research regarding the crypto market movements and even consulting with a professional before attempting to invest in cryptocurrency.
What is Binance Coin ?
Binance Coin (BNB) is a cryptocurrency that can be used for trading and payment on the Binance platform. This digital currency was first created on the Ethereum network with the purpose of paying transaction fees in the Binance exchange. But in a short time, it moved to its native blockchain, Binance Chain. Binance Chain network was optimized for super-fast transactions. To achieve this goal, the Binance Chain network had to balance between different categories. One of these cases was flexibility in terms of programmability. Therefore, introducing Binance Smart Chain, known as BSC, changed this situation.
In February 2022, Binance’s two main blockchains, Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain, were grouped together and called the BNB Chain.

This altcoin is based on the ERC-20 standard and follows the same rules governing the Ethereum blockchain.

Frequently asked questions
Binance Coin is worth buying due to some of its unique usages compared to other cryptocurrencies and its offering of great features that other coins don't have yet. For example, the Binance Visa card project could greatly increase the adoption of BNB. Since it converts BNB cryptocurrency into fiat when used for payment, this special feature could make BNB more popular. Also, this digital asset has a very high volume of daily transactions. However, perhaps the best value of Binance Coin these days is that it could eventually replace Ethereum because it is cheaper. With Ethereum fees increasing in February 2021, many developers have switched to the Binance Smart Network (BSC), leading to an increase of BNB value.
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.

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.
