How to buy Okb in India
Is OKB a good investment in India?
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.
What is Okb ?
OKX (or OKEx) is a worldwide exchange launched in 2014, which offers its users trade with more than
100 kinds of tokens. Since it has more than $1 billion in daily trade, it is the third biggest exchange by
volume. Like other exchanges, OKX also allows people to buy, sell, trade, and invest in cryptocurrencies
via web and mobile applications.
Is Okb legal to buy in India
Yes, it is allowed to trade, buy and sell cryptocurrency in India. In March 2020 the Supreme
Court of India issued a case on the regulation and acknowledgment of the use of digital
currency inside the country. As stated in the above-mentioned document “Technological
innovations, including those underlying virtual currencies, have the potential to improve the
efficiency and inclusiveness of the financial system.” Since then, the Indian government has
been considering the creation of a new legal framework for cryptocurrencies.
Is Okb taxed in India
Yes, cryptocurrencies are taxed in India. Before 2022, the Indian government did not have a
clear stance on the classification and taxation of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. However,
recently the Indian authorities recognized cryptocurrencies as Virtual Digital Assets (VDAs) and
established a tax framework for them. This is the first time that cryptocurrencies have been
acknowledged and taxed in India, as the Income Tax Department (ITD) introduced a new
section, Section 2(47A), into the Income Tax Act to define the term Virtual Digital Assets (VDAs)
and the regulations around its taxation. The definition is comprehensive and encompasses
various types of crypto assets, including cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), tokens,
According to the above-mentioned Tax Act, if you engage in cryptocurrency trading, selling, or
spending, you will be subject to a 30% tax on any profits you make. Additionally, if you sell
crypto assets that are worth more than INR 50,000 in a single financial year, you will also be
subject to a 1% Tax Deducted at Source (TDS). Furthermore, if you are seen as earning income
from other sources in cryptocurrencies, you may also be required to pay income tax at your
individual tax rate. In conclusion, you may be required to pay a 30% tax on the following
cryptocurrency transactions: Selling cryptocurrencies for Indian Rupees or another fiat currency,
Trading cryptocurrencies for other cryptocurrencies (including stable coins), Using
cryptocurrencies to purchase goods and services.
It is important to note that the tax treatment of cryptocurrencies in India may change in the
future as the government continues to consider new regulations. We would recommend
consulting a local tax expert or financial advisor for the most up-to-date information on the tax
treatment of cryptocurrencies in India.
