How to buy Rarible in South Africa
Is RARI a good investment in South Africa?
RARI was released to the market in August 2020 with an initial price of $0.31, and very soon, it could reach $7. Thus, it was a wonderful investment for only a few months. However, it didn’t resume that well and ended the year with a price of $2. Although it seemed that RARI token holders were facing failure, 2021 was very amazing for them because the RARI price reached its highest record of $49 in March of 2021. After this record, the RARI price faced many ups and downs until it ended the year with a value of $13. 2022 started profitably for RARI holders. At the beginning of the year, the RARI price amounted to $23 and then fell again. It couldn’t set any price record and even dropped to $1.84 by the end of the year.
The history of the RARI token shows it was a good investment for its owners several times. However, it was stagnating and might seem uninteresting for people to buy. Furthermore, no one can tell you what may happen to this coin in the following years. But the price predictions may give you a hint about the expected future of RARI. Crypto analysts and experts expect the RARI price to go up again in the next 5 years and may become stable at $10 by 2026 and might reach $17 by 2030. Many also consider RARI a good short-term investment that would have a better profit in one year.
What is Rarible ?
Rarible is the first cryptocurrency dedicated to NFTs, launched in 2020. The main reason for creating such a platform was to secure the digital collections that are designed with blockchain technology. Its focus is on artistic assets. NFTs (non-fungible tokens) allow artists to keep the copyright of their artworks. Rarible works as a marketplace for its users to create, sell or buy digital collections or NFTs. Users can put a preview of their works on this platform, so others check and use their Rarible tokens to purchase the full version.
Is Rarible 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 Rarible 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

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.
