How to buy Okb in Canada
Is OKB a good investment in Canada?
OKB was released in 2019 with an initial price of $2.60. It was stable until February 2020 when it
reached $7.51. OKB sounded like a wonderful investment for people who had bought this coin at its
initial price because they could triple their profit in less than a year. However, it didn’t last for a long
time and the price started to drop again and ended the year with almost $5 per token. 2021 set a record
for OKB, and its price rose to its highest value of $34.31 in May but quickly fell to $10. This year had
many ups and downs for this coin, and OKB's price ended the year at $30. Unlike most of the
cryptocurrencies that had almost a recess year in 2022, the OKB price didn’t drop so much and ended
the year with a value of $27.
The OKB had several profitable moments in its history. But the past is past, and now we should think
about the future. If you want to buy OKB now, you might be curious about its probable future. Will it be
a profitable investment? No one can tell you the answer to this question because the future of
cryptocurrency is unpredictable. However, experts and analysts usually give predictions about the price
of a coin in the future. Most of them believe that the average price of OKB might be around $93 by
2025, and if nothing happens to the cryptocurrency world, it might reach $500 per token by 2030.
However, you should still know that these are just predictions, and may not be 100% reachable.

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.

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.

tell you if OKB can be a profitable investment or the mostly-used coin in the following years. However,
some predictions believe OKB would act as well as it is today in the next ten years.
