How to buy Kusama in Denmark
Is KSM a good investment in Denmark?
Kusama was released in 2019 with an initial price of $1.71. It experienced a price drop very soon after its release, but it never dropped less than $1. Kusama crypto owners might have been disappointed with this price, but 2020 was a surprising year for them because the Kusama price suddenly mounted to $14 in July and ended the year at the price of $60. The Kusama price continued to rise until May 2021, when it reached its highest record of $624.78. That shows how profitable Kusama was in only two years. Kusama had many fluctuations in 2022 and dropped to $28 at the end of the year.
The history of Kusama shows it was a profitable investment. However, it won’t guarantee its profitability in the future. Therefore, you need to check other factors to decide if Kusama is a good investment. One thing that can help you have a broader overview of the future of this coin is checking the price predictions that are made by analysts and crypto experts. Most of them believe Kusama might have good days to come, and its price may go up to $225 by 2025. They also predict that in the long-term it might rise more and mount to $600 again by 2030. However, you should notice that these are just predictions. Your decisions shouldn’t be only on these numbers. Check the news about Kusama the day you decide to purchase it.
What is Kusama ?
Kusama is a decentralized cryptocurrency network created in 2019. The main purpose of creating such a network was to enable developers to have their dedicated blockchain on this network. It means the Kusama network is a platform for developers to test the projects that are going to run or implement on the Polkadot network. That’s why Kusama is known as the “Canary of Polkadot network.” Although the codes of both look the same, Kusama is much faster than Dot (Polkadot). Kusama and Polkadot are two completely separate networks that work in parallel. One of the benefits of this network is that users can vote for changes on the platform.

Is Kusama legal to buy in Denmark?
Yes. According to the amendment to the Danish AML Act (Directive 2018/843/EU), it is legal to
buy and sell cryptocurrencies; however, each transaction must be determined as financial
services, assets in investment, or as a form of payment. This ensures that the use of
cryptocurrency is under Danish laws to prevent cases of money laundering and untaxed
alternative investment funds.
Is Kusama taxed in Denmark
Yes. According to The Danish Customs and Tax Administration (Skatteforvaltningen), profits
from selling or otherwise disposing of cryptocurrency attract income tax rather than capital gains
tax for Danish individuals. As mentioned by the above mentioned document, you are required to
pay income tax only if your intention with buying cryptocurrencies is to gain a profit when you
sell the coins later. The Danish Customs and Tax Administration lets you file a request for a
specific assessment to judge whether you are considered to have bought cryptocurrencies for
speculation and therefore required to pay income tax. But note that most Danish individuals are
categorized as speculators by the Danish Tax Agency and will need to pay income tax on their
After you've bought Kusama in Denmark
Most people buy cryptocurrencies to keep them as an investment. Kusama is not an exception. You can keep them in a secure wallet and sell them whenever their price rises. However, this is not as simple as it is in theory. You need to check its price every day to make sure it is growing or find out when it is the right time to sell. If you are a beginner in this world, we suggest you invest as much as you can afford to lose because the cryptocurrency world is volatile and unpredictable. Furthermore, it is better to consider an exit point for your investment to avoid losing money in case the coin didn’t do as well as you thought.
As mentioned earlier, investment is not the only thing you can do with Kusama coins. KSM is a governance token; KSM owners can use their coins to validate the network, vote on changes on the platform, and nominate validators. In addition, the KSM cryptocurrency can be used for linking to support new parachains.
