How to buy Gnosis in United Kingdom
Is GNO a good investment in United Kingdom?
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 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 Gnosis 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.
After you've bought Gnosis in United Kingdom
GNO token is a governance coin, which means it can be used for voting inside the platform. GNO holders can vote on different subjects and may have the ability to change rules and regulations on this platform. The other benefit of GNO is creating smart contracts, which are very useful on the blockchain. Meanwhile, the main use of GNO is creating an OWL token.

But if you are unfamiliar with this process, you will not need to use GNO coins to stake OWL tokens.
