How to buy TRON in Canada
Is TRX a good investment in Canada?
Tron (TRX) is one of the digital currencies that has been very profitable for its investors over the years, especially those who have entered the currency market for the first time. In 2017, Tron was released in the market at a price of $0.002. In January 2018, the price of each unit of Tron reached $0.028. This means that Tron has grown by more than 10,000% in one month. In 2018, due to the downward trend of all currencies, Tron also found a downward trend. But it still had one of the best performances among other currencies in terms of price. The price fluctuated a little bit over the following three months before experiencing another uptick at the end of April 2018 when TRX doubled in less than two weeks. The price changes over the ensuing two years weren't as eventful as earlier ones. The price of TRX started to increase at the beginning of 2021 and, for the first time in nearly three years, it broke through $0.06. Even though the current crypto market is going through a fluctuating pattern, some crypto market professionals have predicted that TRX would reach $0.15 in 2025 and will be traded for at least $1.37 in 2030. Still, keep in mind that this is not a buying signal. We recommend entering the crypto market after examinations and receiving consultancy from experts.

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.
