How to buy Ocean Protocol in Estonia
Is OCEAN a good investment in Estonia?
Ocean Protocol is a decentralized data exchange platform designed to allow data providers to securely and privately share valuable data and artificial intelligence models while maintaining control over their data. It enables users to discover, access, and use data through a marketplace while ensuring data privacy, security, and compliance with data sharing agreements. Through this protocol, publishers can earn money from their data while maintaining privacy and have control, and along with this, users or data consumers will have access to a set of data that was previously unavailable or difficult to find. These datasets can be found on Market Ocean, a place to buy, use and sell them.
The main idea of Ocean Protocol is to make data available to startups and researchers without leaving the ownership of their custodians. The Ocean platform is built with the goal of facilitating the exchange of data, and connecting users who need this data, or cannot afford to store it, with users who have data to sell. In return, data providers of the Ocean Protocol cryptocurrency are rewarded.

Therefore, activities such as mining, crypto investment, adding cryptocurrency to a company balance sheet, and even establishing a cryptocurrency exchange or wallet are allowed in this country.
Is Ocean Protocol taxed in Estonia
According to the Estonia Tax and Customs Board, cryptocurrency trading contains taxes in Estonia. People who buy cryptocurrency should pay tax in case of trading, converting to fiat, or paying the crypto to purchase something. They should declare all the transactions they have with cryptocurrency because the income from mining or trading any crypto is considered the business income of a person, which is included in the tax rules in Estonia.
The tax report should be declared once a year in March. Generally, if you keep the cryptocurrency as an investment and don’t do anything to it, you won’t need to pay taxes. For example, if you have kept the coins in a wallet for the whole year, you won’t need to mention it in your tax report. Only the profit you gain from selling or trading crypto is taxed. However, if you sell crypto at a lower price than you bought, you won’t need to pay tax for it. Only the profits from selling crypto are reported. Therefore, even if cryptocurrency assets are not tangible assets like a car or a house, that doesn’t bother tax authorities. The tax rate is 20% in Estonia.
