How to buy Ripple in Japan

Is XRP a good investment in Japan?

One thing you should check to find out if XRP is a good investment is checking its value over the years. In August of 2013, the first year after its release, each XRP was sold at 0.01 USD. Later in December 2017, it reached its highest price of 2.28 USD per unit. It shows the price of XRP rose more than 70,000 percent in only five years. Therefore, it was a great investment for people who bought even the minimum amount of this cryptocurrency. However, XRP had many ups and downs until it reached 0.42 USD in October 2022. Some investors believe that XRP may reach 100 USD per unit in the next 10 years, which is not impossible! The more the banks and financial institutions accept XRP in their transactions, the higher its price will get. 

*Remember, the world of cryptocurrencies is so volatile, the price of a coin changes each day. Nothing is 100% guaranteed in this world. However, most of the analysts recommend thinking  about a long-term investment while buying XRP. But you should still know that you are stepping into a risky world. As the price history shows, XRP had many ups and downs that shows the volatility of the cryptocurrency world. One day you may win and one incident in the world may affect the price of crypto and make you lose your investment. It is better to define an exit point for yourself. If the price of XRP went lower than that amount, sell your tokens.

Is Ripple 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

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Some experts predict that the price of this coin will get higher when more banks and financial institutes accept and start working with XRP and Ripple networks. If you are thinking about investing in a cryptocurrency, XRP can be a good choice. However, before buying XRP you should do more analysis and read more reviews to make sure it is worth buying. 

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
obligation.

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.

No. You should buy at least 20 ripples to activate the XRP wallet.

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.
