Is Fantom 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 Fantom 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.
