How to buy Binance Coin in United Kingdom
Is BNB a good investment in United Kingdom?
Binance Coin (BNB) was introduced and launched in July 2017 at the initial coin launch event. At the time of launch, each coin was sold for 15 cents. Binance was able to raise a total of around $15 million from this ICO. The value of Binance's native coin, BNB, has increased significantly over time as a result of the company's explosive growth in the cryptocurrency sector.
The price of BNB cryptocurrency in US dollars increased gradually at first, staying below $50 between 2017 and the beginning of 2021. BNB tokens’ high price record reached $24.71 (in January 2018) during the 2017 to 2018 crypto market bull run. Later, in May 2021, the entire cryptocurrency market experienced a significant uptrend, with some cryptocurrencies setting new all-time highs. As a result, on May 10, 2021, the price of BNB increased from under $50 to an all-time high of $690.93, a 460520 percent rise from its price at the time of the ICO. Additionally, BNB was valued at over $100 billion at the time. By the start of 2023, BNB has been trading between about $245 to $310. Some crypto experts believe that BNB has an outstanding potential to reach new heights. They predicted that it could reach about $1,047 by 2025. In spite of all that, this information is not aiming to act as a buying signal or a financial advice. We encourage you to do your research regarding the crypto market movements and even consulting with a professional before attempting to invest in cryptocurrency.
What is Binance Coin ?
Binance Coin (BNB) is a cryptocurrency that can be used for trading and payment on the Binance platform. This digital currency was first created on the Ethereum network with the purpose of paying transaction fees in the Binance exchange. But in a short time, it moved to its native blockchain, Binance Chain. Binance Chain network was optimized for super-fast transactions. To achieve this goal, the Binance Chain network had to balance between different categories. One of these cases was flexibility in terms of programmability. Therefore, introducing Binance Smart Chain, known as BSC, changed this situation.
In February 2022, Binance’s two main blockchains, Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain, were grouped together and called the BNB Chain. Binance Coin (BNB) digital currency then was set as a native and exclusive digital currency of the BNB network. This altcoin is based on the ERC-20 standard and follows the same rules governing the Ethereum blockchain. This digital currency makes the Binance Blockchain benefit from the stability and safety of the Ethereum and other Blockchain networks. Also, this digital currency is well protected from theft and has low costs due to its initial creation in the Ethereum network.
Is Binance Coin 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. According to the consumers’ investment definition by FCA, buying, selling, investing and making payments through cryptocurrency is legal in the UK. But remember to check before you make a purchase, receive a payment or pay using crypto assets if the deployed crypto assets or services are regulated in the UK. An extensive report on UK’s crypto assets regulations is issued by the HM Treasury, Financial Conduct Authority and the Bank of England.
Is Binance Coin 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.

Frequently asked questions
Binance Coin is worth buying due to some of its unique usages compared to other cryptocurrencies and its offering of great features that other coins don't have yet. For example, the Binance Visa card project could greatly increase the adoption of BNB. Since it converts BNB cryptocurrency into fiat when used for payment, this special feature could make BNB more popular. Also, this digital asset has a very high volume of daily transactions. However, perhaps the best value of Binance Coin these days is that it could eventually replace Ethereum because it is cheaper. With Ethereum fees increasing in February 2021, many developers have switched to the Binance Smart Network (BSC), leading to an increase of BNB value.
