How to buy Gnosis in South Africa
Is GNO a good investment in South Africa?
GNO was released to the market in May 2017 with an initial price of $51.64. Very soon, it could rise to $322 in the same year. It was a wonderful investment for people who had bought this coin at its release. However, it didn’t last long, and the GNO price fell again. In 2018, it could set another record of $401.17. After that, it fell into a two-year recession and even reached its lowest price of $7. GNO started 2021 with a growth of $110 and reached the highest value of $579 at the end of the year. Although 2021 sounded amazing for GNO owners, 2022 had many fluctuations. This coin faced recession again and ended the year with a price of $85.
GNO claimed to be a good investment several times. However, it seems that people need to be more patient about keeping this coin during its fall. But it is still a risky investment for newcomers to this world. Thus, they may need some help. One thing that can lead you to have a better decision about buying GNO is the price predictions that analysts and crypto experts forecast. Although these predictions are not %100 true, they can still help you have a brighter view of what may happen to this coin in the future. Most analysts believe that GNO price would go up even as high as $1400 by 2025. They also predict that the next ten years might be even better for GNO holders.
What is Gnosis ?
Gnosis is a decentralized prediction market network launched in January 2015. It is an Ethereum-based protocol for developers to run prediction market applications. People can generate, trade, and sell digital assets on this network. Apollo is the name of the Gnosis platform where users can do all these functions, which is accessible from the Gnosis website. Furthermore, the Gnosis protocol has the ability to create conditional tokens, which are a new asset class in this market. Then the users on this platform can trade conditional tokens and other digital assets using a decentralized market mechanism. Gnosis aims to provide an infrastructure for decentralized applications that can act as a prediction tool, information source and standard for the predictive asset.
Is Gnosis 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.

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

Amendment Bill, the treatment of capital gains from investment assets, such as property or

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.
