How to buy EOSIO in Japan
Is EOS a good investment in Japan?
Known as an "Ethereum killer"; EOS is one of the top 50 largest cryptocurrencies by market cap. EOS coin was released to the market in 2017 with the price of $1.52 per coin. It experienced the lowest price of $0.48 in October of the same year. Supporting smart contracts and the flexibility of this coin made it one of the top cryptocurrencies in 2018 when its price mounted to $22.89. It shows how profitable this investment was for its first year. However, it didn't last long, and the EOS price dropped to $2.15 at the end of the same year. The fluctuations in the price of crypto are normal; you can't always forecast the future based on its past. Other factors can help you analyze if it's the right time to buy EOS.
Crypto experts and analysts predict the future of a coin based on some analysis. Although this price prediction is not guaranteed, it can help you decide if EOS might have a bright future as an investment. Cryptocurrency experts believe that the EOS price may be between $19.07 to $22.91 in 2030. They also claim that EOS might be a profitable long-term investment. But in the short-term, it might be risky. However, no one can tell you if your investment is %100 profitable. It’s better to read more about the history of EOS, how you can use it and what top investors tell you about this coin. Furthermore, if you are a beginner, it’s better to have an exit point for your investment; so if the price of EOS dropped to that number, you sell it to prevent losing your money.
What is EOSIO ?
Although many know this blockchain by the name of EOS, the real name of the blockchain is EOSIO, which was designed by Block.one company. EOSIO is a decentralized blockchain network released in 2017. Its system is very similar to Ethereum, but faster, more flexible, and free of charge. These features made EIOSIO more popular than Ethereum, especially the speed of this network, which allows thousands of transactions per second (tps); compared to the 15 tps of the Ethereum system, EOSIO is really a winner. There are other benefits that the EOISIO system has that make it one of the top decentralized blockchains, including being user-friendly and supporting smart contracts and voting, which are predicted to become so useful in the near future.

Is EOSIO 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 EOSIO 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
resident tax rate is 10.21%.

Yes. According to the Virtual Currency Tax Guideline pamphlet by the Japanese National Tax
Agency (NTA), in Japan, using cryptocurrency to pay for goods or services is subject to
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
According to the official Tax Answer No.1500 in Japan, there are currently no tax-free
cryptocurrency transactions. All cryptocurrency transactions, including buying, selling, and using
cryptocurrency to pay for goods or services, are subject to either capital gains tax or
consumption tax, or both. The Japanese National Tax Agency considers cryptocurrency to be a
form of property, and as such, any gains from selling cryptocurrency are taxed as capital gains.
Additionally, using cryptocurrency to purchase goods or services is subject to consumption tax.
It’s important to consult with a tax professional for more information on specific tax obligations
and to ensure compliance with Japan’s tax laws.
Analysts have predicted price growth for both the EOS and Cardano in the future. They are performing very close to each other as an investment. They both accept smart contracts and have the same usage. However, Cardano is a bigger network and the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Therefore, it may be one step ahead of EOS.
It’s difficult to estimate the exact number of people in Japan who own crypto assets, but it was
estimated by some sources that in Japan, about 4.0%, which would be around 5 million of its
population, owned some form of cryptocurrency. However, these numbers can change rapidly
due to frequent movements in the crypto market.
One of the points that EOS has among most of the decentralized blockchain networks is that all the transactions on this platform are free of charge.
