How to buy Chiliz in South Africa
Is CHZ a good investment in South Africa?
CHZ coins were released to the market in 2018. But it didn’t have any price until July 2019, when it started to become more popular among sports fans. The initial price of CHZ was $0.02, and it didn’t change for one year. Then it had a price jump in 2021 and suddenly reached its highest value of $0.89. The rest of the year passed with an average price of $0.50. Like most cryptocurrencies, 2022 wasn’t that much great for CHZ owners. Its price fluctuated a lot, but never reached that high to set a record. It ended the year with a price of $0.10.
Cryptocurrency investors often want to know what the cryptocurrency's future holds. But the future is unpredictable, especially in the volatile world of cryptocurrencies. However, to make it easier to decide about buying a coin, analysts and crypto experts analyze the past and current situation of the crypto market and give price predictions, which can be useful but should not be the only factor you pick to decide on buying crypto. They think the CHZ price might finally get higher than $1 by 2028 and would rise as high as $3 by 2030.
What is Chiliz ?
Chiliz is the world's first cryptocurrency dedicated to sports fans. Socios is the platform that works with this cryptocurrency. Sports clubs can create Fan Tokens on this platform, and their fans can buy tokens with their favorite sports club's logo to show their support. They also can trade the tokens with others. The Fan Tokens show interest in a particular sports team, especially football clubs. The platform was launched in December 2019. The first sports partner to this platform was the Italian soccer team of Turin.
Is Chiliz 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 Chiliz 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
cryptocurrencies in countries such as the United States and India, South Africa appears to tax
cryptocurrencies in line with internationals trends. According to the above-mentioned
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
investment purposes, the gain or loss will be taxed as part of the individual's taxable income.
Similarly, if an individual disposes of a cryptocurrency, any gain arising from the disposal will be
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.
