The history of the Ankr platform dates back to 2017. This platform aims to create an efficient blockchain framework that provides distributed cloud computing. In general, if we want to define the Ankr platform in a simple phrase, we can say that Ankr is a blockchain-based cloud infrastructure project. The purpose of blockchain infrastructures is to enable resource providers and end users to easily connect to blockchain technologies and DeFi applications.

Is Ankr legal to buy in South Africa?
Yes, it is legal to buy cryptocurrencies in South Africa. A position paper on crypto assets’
regulation necessity was published by the Intergovernmental Fintech Working Group (IFWG)
with the supervision of the South African Reserve Bank. The position paper's objective is to
offer detailed advice on how to create a regulatory framework for digital assets, along with
recommendations on how to carry out the necessary regulatory changes. According to the same
paper mentioned above, “A crypto asset is a digital representation of value that is not issued by
a central bank, but is capable of being traded, transferred or stored electronically by regular
individuals and legal persons for the purpose of payment, investment and other forms of utility;
applies cryptographic techniques and uses distributed ledger technology.” The proposed
regulations and a policy on the practices associated with crypto assets are also being
developed further, using that same position paper as inspiration.
Is Ankr taxed in South Africa
Yes. According to the Explanatory Memorandum on the Taxation Laws Amendment Bill
provided by the South African Revenue Service (SARS), based on the taxation of

Amendment Bill, the treatment of capital gains from investment assets, such as property or
cryptocurrency. If an individual derives a gain or loss from the sale of a property held for

subject to tax under the provisions of capital gains tax.
Moreover, in accordance with the same mentioned Bill, if a taxpayer is found to be frequently
engaged in cryptocurrency transactions, they could be considered a cryptocurrency trader. In
such a case, the income generated from the cryptocurrency trade will be included in the
taxpayer's taxable income and will be subject to taxation. This means that all the profits made
from buying and selling cryptocurrencies will be considered taxable income and the taxpayer will
be responsible for paying taxes on it.
