How to buy Tezos in United Kingdom
Is XTZ a good investment in United Kingdom?
Tezos has introduced itself as the first self-correcting platform among digital currencies. The Tezos smart contract platform is similar to Ethereum and allows the creation of decentralized applications, except that it uses a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. In July 2017, Tezos was able to attract about 232 million dollars in initial coin offering (ICO), which made Tezos the second digital currency in the world of cryptocurrencies. The fame and popularity of Tezos digital currency made large companies such as PolyChain Capital show interest in investing in the native token of Tezos (XTZ). Finally, on June 30, 2018, the first test net of Tezos was released.
Participants or shareholders in the Tezos blockchain, can vote on the changes they want to achieve through a collective consensus on the proposed plans. Smart contracts can always be created using the Tezos platform. Through smart contracts, there will be no manipulations by a third party. In addition, Tezos is a platform to improve the safety of secure contracts, which means if this technology is widely used in the future, any costly and controversial bugs can be totally avoided.

According to the consumers’ investment definition by FCA, buying, selling, investing and making payments through cryptocurrency is legal in the UK.

Is Tezos 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.
