How to buy Cardano in United Kingdom
Is ADA a good investment in United Kingdom?
Cardano and its official coin “ADA” is known as the third generation blockchain, which has fulfilled the issues on the previous generations of blockchains. It is now faster and cheaper than Bitcoin and Ethereum. But that’s not the only benefit that this coin has. There are other factors to check to find out if Cardano is a good investment. One of them is its performance over the years. ADA was released as the native token of Cardano in 2017 with the price of $0.024, which was the lowest price of this token. Very soon the price rose up to $3 in 2021, which shows this coin was a good long-term investment.During this period, ADA had many fluctuations, but analysts always had positive opinions about this coin.
One important thing to consider is that no one can guarantee if the future of a coin is positive because everything in the world of cryptocurrencies is volatile and risky. However, the price predictions of a coin can help you see how positive the analysts and experts think about the future of a coin. Many experts have predicted the future of ADA until 2030 between $3 to $5. Thus, considering a long-term investment, check the price of ADA for the day you are buying and check the future prediction for up to 5 years later. Think about the risks and choose an exit point for your investment. These steps can help you have a good investment.

From the first day of its release, it acted better than most of its previous competitors.
Is Cardano legal to buy in United Kingdom
Yes. According to the definition of crypto assets provided by FCA (Financial Conduct Authority), crypto assets are cryptographically secured digital representations of value or contractual rights that use some type of distributed ledger technology (DLT) and can be transferred, stored or traded electronically.

Is Cardano taxed in United Kingdom
Yes. According to the tax authority of the U.K. government (HMRC) Crypto Assets Manual, cryptocurrency is taxable in the UK. HMRC are clear that crypto may be subject to both Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax depending on the specific transaction. According to the above-mentioned manual, if you’ve sold your crypto for more than you bought it, you’ll likely pay capital gains tax on the profit. For capital gains from crypto tax-free allowance, you'll pay 10% or 20% tax. If you’re trading huge amounts of crypto, HMRC will think you are a trader and ask you to pay income tax on trading, rather than capital gains taxes. For additional income from crypto over the personal allowance, you'll pay between 20% to 45% in tax. The exact amount you'll pay will depend on the transaction you've made, the tax that applies and the Income Tax band you fall into. See UK’s Crypto Assets Manual for Individuals for more information.
