How to buy Kusama in Romania
Is KSM a good investment in Romania?
Kusama was released in 2019 with an initial price of $1.71. It experienced a price drop very soon after its release, but it never dropped less than $1. Kusama crypto owners might have been disappointed with this price, but 2020 was a surprising year for them because the Kusama price suddenly mounted to $14 in July and ended the year at the price of $60. The Kusama price continued to rise until May 2021, when it reached its highest record of $624.78. That shows how profitable Kusama was in only two years. Kusama had many fluctuations in 2022 and dropped to $28 at the end of the year.
The history of Kusama shows it was a profitable investment. However, it won’t guarantee its profitability in the future. Therefore, you need to check other factors to decide if Kusama is a good investment. One thing that can help you have a broader overview of the future of this coin is checking the price predictions that are made by analysts and crypto experts. Most of them believe Kusama might have good days to come, and its price may go up to $225 by 2025. They also predict that in the long-term it might rise more and mount to $600 again by 2030. However, you should notice that these are just predictions. Your decisions shouldn’t be only on these numbers. Check the news about Kusama the day you decide to purchase it.
What is Kusama ?
Kusama is a decentralized cryptocurrency network created in 2019. The main purpose of creating such a network was to enable developers to have their dedicated blockchain on this network. It means the Kusama network is a platform for developers to test the projects that are going to run or implement on the Polkadot network. That’s why Kusama is known as the “Canary of Polkadot network.” Although the codes of both look the same, Kusama is much faster than Dot (Polkadot). Kusama and Polkadot are two completely separate networks that work in parallel. One of the benefits of this network is that users can vote for changes on the platform.
Is Kusama legal to buy in Romania
Yes. According to Law 227/2015, transactions with virtual currencies including cryptocurrencies are legal and regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority (ASF) and the National Bank of Romania (BNR). It is estimated that more than 423,000 people, or 2.20% of the population of Romania currently trade in the crypto markets.
Is Kusama taxed in Romania
Yes. According to Chapter X, Title IV of the Romanian Tax Code, the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) states that revenues from crypto falls under the category of income from alternative sources, and profits, whether that is gains or income, are subject to Income Tax. According to the same tax code, you need to pay 10% Income Tax on both any capital gain or any additional income from your crypto investment activities in Romania, and this is if your total earnings throughout the financial year exceed 600 Lei.
After you've bought Kusama in Romania
Most people buy cryptocurrencies to keep them as an investment. Kusama is not an exception. You can keep them in a secure wallet and sell them whenever their price rises. However, this is not as simple as it is in theory. You need to check its price every day to make sure it is growing or find out when it is the right time to sell. If you are a beginner in this world, we suggest you invest as much as you can afford to lose because the cryptocurrency world is volatile and unpredictable. Furthermore, it is better to consider an exit point for your investment to avoid losing money in case the coin didn’t do as well as you thought.
As mentioned earlier, investment is not the only thing you can do with Kusama coins. KSM is a governance token; KSM owners can use their coins to validate the network, vote on changes on the platform, and nominate validators. In addition, the KSM cryptocurrency can be used for linking to support new parachains.
