How to buy eCredits in Singapore
Is ECS a good investment in Singapore?
The eCredits Ecosystem is a decentralized, blockchain-based ecosystem with its own native,
usable cryptocurrency, called eCredits (ECS). According to the official website of eCredits, by
using the eCredits Blockchain, local and regional micro-ecosystems will be able to develop,
provide, and sell services and goods. This movement will be supported by the eCredits
ecosystem, which aims to provide a platform for this aim. These services are designed to aid
micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) in competing on an equal footing or even
surpassing larger market participants. As a result, local businesses will be able to connect with
their customers on a whole new and direct level. This will give local suppliers opportunities to
reward their customers by enabling them to earn discounts and bonuses through repeated
purchases. Since eCredits ecosystem is built on and powered by blockchain technology, which
is by its very nature decentralized and secure, it also supports diversity and incorporates social
values like equality into its functionality. With regard to making purchases from small businesses
and retailers, eCredits wants to become the method of choice for customers. The overall goal of
eCredits is to encourage local shopping, strengthen neighborhood communities, and promote
more environmentally friendly behaviors
What is eCredits ?
ECS is the abbreviation and official sign for eCredits, which is a digital currency or form of digital
asset that is operating on its own decentralized blockchain as a pro-environmental project.
Is eCredits legal to buy in Singapore
Yes. According to the Payment Services Amendment Bill by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Digital payment tokens (DPT) or cryptocurrencies are not denominated in any currency but can be used as a form of payment. According to the Managing Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, cryptocurrencies can take the form of assets or items of value and can be legally managed through transactions.
Is eCredits taxed in Singapore
Yes and no. According to the E-Tax Guide by the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS), the Singaporean Government taxes crypto depending on the kind of activity that you are doing with the tokens. The profit made through crypto trading in the regular course of business would be subject to income tax. Because of this, any losses and gains you make must be recorded on an annual tax return so that you can report them to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
But, according to the mentioned document by IRAS, since there are no capital gainsگ taxations in Singapore, capital gains obtained from the purchase of cryptocurrencies for long-term investment reasons are not subject to taxation in Singapore. In simple terms, if you buy cryptocurrency as a long-term investment and sell it with profit, you will probably be exempt from tax, but if you trade on a regular basis, you will be subject to Income Tax. For more information on individual tax rates visit IRAS.

in ECS. For those with a high holding capacity and sound financial standing, this type of
investment seems like a good option. ECS also exposes users to a global technology and an
expanding ecosystem. Given that scarcity often leads to price increases, the value of eCredits is

No. According to the E-Tax Guide by IRAS, if you use cryptocurrencies to pay for goods and services, the person who pays by cryptocurrency won’t be taxed but the business providing the goods or services will be taxed instead based on the value of the goods or services being provided. This is because cryptocurrencies are not the same as fiat currencies (meaning they aren't considered legal tender), and they are treated as intangible property for the purposes of income tax treatment. This might reduce the likelihood of businesses accepting your crypto tokens as a form of payment.
Yes. According to the E-Tax Guide by IRAS, crypto trading can be subject to income tax in Singapore, and in case you engage in crypto trading regularly, you should make a record of your transactions so that you can report them to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

wallet. This means that only you have access to your assets and can store them.
Nobody else can access or restore your private key, and only you are permitted to send
or receive assets. On a decentralized blockchain, every transaction is safe and
inaccessible. This eWallet also allows users to connect with third party centralized or
decentralized applications or exchanges. Please note that in order to ensure your
assets’ security, User Account, Secret Phrase and the Private keys should be kept
personal and you may not share your credentials with anyone. You are solely
responsible for remembering, storing, and keeping your credentials in a secure location;
therefore, it is recommended to back up your information so that you can safely retrieve
them in case it was lost.
