After that, it fell into a two-year recession and even reached its lowest price of $7. GNO started 2021 with a growth of $110 and reached the highest value of $579 at the end of the year. Although 2021 sounded amazing for GNO owners, 2022 had many fluctuations. This coin faced recession again and ended the year with a price of $85.
GNO claimed to be a good investment several times. However, it seems that people need to be more patient about keeping this coin during its fall. But it is still a risky investment for newcomers to this world. Thus, they may need some help.

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.
