How to buy Chainlink in Ireland
Is LINK a good investment in Ireland?
LINK crypto was released in 2017 with an initial price of $0.11. Its price didn’t have a salient change until mid-2019 when it finally could reach $1 per token and continued to grow and ended the year with a price of $4. 2020 was more surprising for this coin because it could mount up to $14 and become a wonderful investment for its owners. LINK could reach its highest price of $37 in February 2021. Although it might seem that LINK didn’t have a great beginning, its price suddenly surprised everyone. However, 2022 wasn’t a great year for this crypto because the LINK price dropped to $19.60 in January, and ended the year at $7.
Like many cryptocurrencies, LINK also had fluctuations. People who want to invest in this crypto would like to know if it will end up profitable. No one knows the answer to this question, but some factors can help investors decide on buying this crypto. One of them is LINK price predictions. Some crypto analysts believe that LINK price may continue to fall until 2027, but then it might increase to $70 and may continue to grow and be around $169 in the next ten years. Therefore, they expect LINK to be a good long-term investment. However, predictions are just some expectations that might not come true. It is better to check the news about this crypto, read its whitepaper, and investigate the price of the day to decide whether it is the best time to buy LINK.
What is Chainlink ?
Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network announced in 2017. It runs on the Ethereum blockchain and is used to support advanced smart contracts. Generally, smart contracts are automated agreements on blockchain. But, sometimes, they need to connect to the real world to make some processes possible. Chainlink makes this possible and acts like a bridge between blockchains and external data sources or what is known as off-chain.
Is Chainlink legal to buy in Ireland
Yes. According to a press release by the Director of Financial Regulation which was published
by the Central Bank of Ireland, blockchain and cryptographic technology have the potential to
bring significant benefits to the economy and to the users of financial services, since
cryptocurrency is being deployed in different situations and for various purposes such as
supporting smart contracts, engaging in payment services, investment activities or, as is often
the case, speculation.
Is Chainlink taxed in Ireland
Yes. According to the Irish Tax and Customs Agency (Revenue), if an Irish resident sells a
crypto asset and gains profit from it, any gain would be treated as capital gain and could be
subject to capital gains tax (currently 33%). According to the above-mentioned document, if an
Irish individual was carrying on a ‘trade’ of dealing in cryptocurrency, any profit on the selling of
crypto assets would be subject to income tax, the income tax rates can be up to 55% (including
universal social charge and social insurance). According to the above-mentioned Irish Tax
Agency reference, a trade in crypto-assets would be similar in nature to a trade in shares,
securities, or other assets. Where a person makes a trading profit or loss on crypto-asset
transactions this must be reflected in their accounts and will be taxable in accordance with
normal Income Tax rules.
After you've bought Chainlink in Ireland
LINK coin is mainly used on the Chainlink network as a payment fee or for voting on different processes. It can’t be used as a payment method outside this network. Therefore, it is not possible to use it as a real currency to purchase goods or transfer money. However, this might be possible in the future. You can trade or swap the LINK coins with Eth or XRP and then use it to purchase goods or even use it in gaming or other processes.
Meanwhile, most people buy a cryptocurrency for investment. In this case, the usage is not that important because you only need to keep your coins in a wallet and wait until the right time to sell. Investment needs you to be aware of the crypto market and check the coin price every day. If you are new to this world, we recommend you choose an exit point for your investment. Thus, if the price of LINK reaches that amount, you can easily sell it to get a profit. In the end, we also suggest investing as much as you can afford to lose because cryptocurrencies are volatile, and nothing is predictable in this world.
