How to buy Ocean Protocol in Malaysia
Is OCEAN a good investment in Malaysia?
Ocean Protocol is a decentralized data exchange platform designed to allow data providers to securely and privately share valuable data and artificial intelligence models while maintaining control over their data. It enables users to discover, access, and use data through a marketplace while ensuring data privacy, security, and compliance with data sharing agreements. Through this protocol, publishers can earn money from their data while maintaining privacy and have control, and along with this, users or data consumers will have access to a set of data that was previously unavailable or difficult to find. These datasets can be found on Market Ocean, a place to buy, use and sell them.
The main idea of Ocean Protocol is to make data available to startups and researchers without leaving the ownership of their custodians. The Ocean platform is built with the goal of facilitating the exchange of data, and connecting users who need this data, or cannot afford to store it, with users who have data to sell. In return, data providers of the Ocean Protocol cryptocurrency are rewarded.
What is Ocean Protocol ?
OCEAN is the native token of the Ocean Protocol blockchain. Crypto traders use the symbol "OCEAN" to refer to the Ocean Protocol token (OCEAN), which is commonly traded on different platforms. The symbol is used to distinguish it from other crypto assets and to make it easier for users to identify and trade the token. The symbol is standardized and is widely recognized by the cryptocurrency community, making it easier for users to trade OCEAN on different mediums.
Is Ocean Protocol legal to buy in Malaysia
Yes, cryptocurrency is legal to buy, sell and trade in Malaysia. According to an issued guideline
on digital currencies by Malaysia’s central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), has stated that
it does not ban cryptocurrency transactions and has issued guidelines for individuals and
businesses to follow when using cryptocurrencies. These guidelines are intended to help ensure
the stability of Malaysia's financial system and to protect consumers from potential risks.
Is Ocean Protocol taxed in Malaysia
Yes and no, there is no specific tax law in Malaysia that governs the taxation of cryptocurrencies
as of 12 February of 2023. However, the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) has issued
Guidelines on Tax Treatment of Digital Currency Transactions indicating that cryptocurrencies
may be subject to tax under existing laws on certain conditions. According to the mentioned
guideline above, The Malaysian Inland Revenue Board (IRBM) has stated that cryptocurrency
transactions are exempt from tax, unless they are conducted regularly or repetitively. This
means that if you engage in cryptocurrency trading on a frequent basis, you will be required to
pay taxes on your cryptocurrency earnings. For businesses involved in cryptocurrency, any
profits generated from these transactions will be subject to income tax, regardless of whether
the profits are received in cryptocurrency or fiat currency. On the other hand, according to the
above-mentioned document, since cryptocurrencies are not viewed as capital assets nor a legal
tender by Malaysian authorities, crypto transactions carried out by individual and occasional
investors are not taxed.
It is worth noting that tax laws and regulations can change over time, so we would recommend
checking with the IRBM or consulting with a tax professional for the most up-to-date information.
