How to buy Tezos in Canada

Is XTZ a good investment in Canada?

Tezos has introduced itself as the first self-correcting platform among digital currencies. The Tezos smart contract platform is similar to Ethereum and allows the creation of decentralized applications, except that it uses a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. In July 2017, Tezos was able to attract about 232 million dollars in initial coin offering (ICO), which made Tezos the second digital currency in the world of cryptocurrencies. The fame and popularity of Tezos digital currency made large companies such as PolyChain Capital show interest in investing in the native token of Tezos (XTZ). Finally, on June 30, 2018, the first test net of Tezos was released.

Participants or shareholders in the Tezos blockchain, can vote on the changes they want to achieve through a collective consensus on the proposed plans. Smart contracts can always be created using the Tezos platform. Through smart contracts, there will be no manipulations by a third party. In addition, Tezos is a platform to improve the safety of secure contracts, which means if this technology is widely used in the future, any costly and controversial bugs can be totally avoided.

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.

There is no established minimum amount assigned for purchasing Tezos. Through our exchange, you can begin buying Tezos for a minimum of $10 using the payment method of your choice. The transaction will be processed and added to your collection of cryptocurrency assets.

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.
