How to buy Okb in Japan
Is OKB a good investment in Japan?
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.

Is Okb 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 Okb 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%.

in the future, this condition might change, and you may be able to use this coin to purchase things.
Most crypto buyers want to keep these coins as an investment. OKB can be a good investment too. You

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.
Officially, the company is registered in Seychelles, but the headquarter is in Malta. The OKB was
founded by a Chinese programmer Star Xu, who worked for Yahoo and Alibaba before founding OKEx.
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.
The future of cryptocurrencies is unpredictable because this world is so risky and volatile. No one can
tell you if OKB can be a profitable investment or the mostly-used coin in the following years. However,
some predictions believe OKB would act as well as it is today in the next ten years.
