How to File Your Binance Smart Chain Taxes With Cryptiony

Binance is a popular layer 1 Ethereum alternative with lower fees, countless dApps (including many P2E and Defi projects), and billions in liquidity. The network’s low gas fees make it a favourite for investors and new projects.

In this guide, you will learn how to calculate your Binance crypto taxes in minutes, and without getting a headache! So with that said, let’s begin.

What is Binance Smart Chain?

Binance Smart Chain is an EVM-compatible blockchain built by Binance as a way for users to enjoy crypto without paying the high fees associated with Ethereum.

In recent years, BSC has grown into one of the leading blockchains with a TVL of $4.8 billion, only behind Ethereum and Tron.

Its EVM compatibility and low fees mean it’s easy to launch an Ethereum dApp on BSC or vice-versa, which caused BSC to become one of the most well-developed ecosystems in crypto.

How do I calculate taxes on Binance Smart Chain transactions?

As Binance’s low fees mean users make many transactions on the network, calculating your Binance taxes manually would take too long and could easily lead to mistakes.

Besides the Cryptiony automated tax calculator, you could do your taxes yourself or use an accountant. However, the UK has many complicated tax laws, meaning calculating your taxes manually could be slow, expensive and inaccurate; because even most accountants are unaware of crypto tax regulations.

On the other hand, we specialise in UK crypto tax and stay current with new regulations. With Cryptiony, you can rest assured that your crypto taxes are correctly calculated. And better yet, using our app costs far less than using an account!

So if you want to start saving time and money on your crypto taxes, you can begin by importing your transactions to Cryptiony.
