What is ANKR ?
The history of the Ankr platform dates back to 2017. This platform aims to create an efficient blockchain framework that provides distributed cloud computing. In general, if we want to define the Ankr platform in a simple phrase, we can say that Ankr is a blockchain-based cloud infrastructure project. The purpose of blockchain infrastructures is to enable resource providers and end users to easily connect to blockchain technologies and DeFi applications. Ankr's proprietary cloud infrastructure operates independently of public providers and is powered by a distributed database to increase flexibility and stability.
Ankr uses blockchain technology as an essential part of the infrastructure to facilitate payments on the platform, measure globally distributed resources, process information from users or resource providers, and data center algorithmic suggestions through smart contracts.
Is Ankr legal to buy in Japan
Yes. In Japan, cryptocurrency is considered legal and regulated under the Payment Services
Act, which was enacted in April 2017. The Act defines cryptocurrency as a form of property and
also recognizes cryptocurrency as a form of asset and allows individuals to buy, sell, and hold
cryptocurrency as a means of payment. In addition, cryptocurrency exchanges operating in
Japan are subject to government regulation and must comply with anti-money laundering act
(AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) regulations.
Is Ankr taxed in Japan
Yes. According to the official Tax Answer No.1500 released by the Japanese National Tax
Agency (NTA), cryptocurrency is taxed in Japan as a form of property and profits obtained from
cryptocurrency trading will be treated as "miscellaneous income"(or zatsu-shotoku in
Japanese). This means that gains from selling cryptocurrencies will be taxed in a similar manner
to other sources of income, such as employment income. Individuals who trade
cryptocurrencies are subject to taxation on any capital gains they attain from selling their
cryptocurrency holdings. As per the Japanese Income Tax Law for Virtual Currencies, gains
from the sale of cryptocurrency are considered taxable income and may be subject to both
individual income tax and resident tax. In accordance with the two Tax Laws mentioned, the tax
rate for individuals can range from 5% to 55% depending on the amount of the gain, while the

consumption tax (消費税). This tax is imposed on the value of the goods or services being
purchased, and the rate varies depending on the type of goods or services. For example, the
standard rate for most goods and services is 8%. This means that if you purchase an item for
100,000 yen and pay with cryptocurrency, you will be required to pay an additional 8,000 yen in
consumption tax. It's important to note that the seller is responsible for collecting and remitting
the consumption tax to the government, but as a buyer, it's good to be aware of this tax
