How to buy Tezos in Japan
Is XTZ a good investment in Japan?
Tezos has introduced itself as the first self-correcting platform among digital currencies. The Tezos smart contract platform is similar to Ethereum and allows the creation of decentralized applications, except that it uses a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. In July 2017, Tezos was able to attract about 232 million dollars in initial coin offering (ICO), which made Tezos the second digital currency in the world of cryptocurrencies. The fame and popularity of Tezos digital currency made large companies such as PolyChain Capital show interest in investing in the native token of Tezos (XTZ). Finally, on June 30, 2018, the first test net of Tezos was released.
Participants or shareholders in the Tezos blockchain, can vote on the changes they want to achieve through a collective consensus on the proposed plans. Smart contracts can always be created using the Tezos platform. Through smart contracts, there will be no manipulations by a third party. In addition, Tezos is a platform to improve the safety of secure contracts, which means if this technology is widely used in the future, any costly and controversial bugs can be totally avoided.

Is Tezos 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 Tezos 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%.

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
