How to buy Okb in South Africa
Is OKB a good investment in South Africa?
OKB was released in 2019 with an initial price of $2.60. It was stable until February 2020 when it
reached $7.51. OKB sounded like a wonderful investment for people who had bought this coin at its
initial price because they could triple their profit in less than a year. However, it didn’t last for a long
time and the price started to drop again and ended the year with almost $5 per token. 2021 set a record
for OKB, and its price rose to its highest value of $34.31 in May but quickly fell to $10. This year had
many ups and downs for this coin, and OKB's price ended the year at $30. Unlike most of the
cryptocurrencies that had almost a recess year in 2022, the OKB price didn’t drop so much and ended
the year with a value of $27.
The OKB had several profitable moments in its history. But the past is past, and now we should think
about the future. If you want to buy OKB now, you might be curious about its probable future. Will it be
a profitable investment? No one can tell you the answer to this question because the future of
cryptocurrency is unpredictable. However, experts and analysts usually give predictions about the price
of a coin in the future. Most of them believe that the average price of OKB might be around $93 by
2025, and if nothing happens to the cryptocurrency world, it might reach $500 per token by 2030.
However, you should still know that these are just predictions, and may not be 100% reachable.

Is Okb 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 Okb 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.
