Understanding Arbitrage

Cryptocurrency Arbitrage Trading, or "Crypto" Arbitrage Trading, refers to the practice of purchasing a cryptocurrency (often a stable coin) on an overseas exchange and immediately selling it on a South African exchange for a profit. This transaction is facilitated by the fact that cryptocurrencies can trade at a premium of 1 - 3% in South Africa compared to overseas exchanges.

When engaging in Crypto Arbitrage Trading, your investment is not in the cryptocurrency itself but in the margin between different markets. Therefore, you never actually own the cryptocurrency as part of this unique investment strategy.

The South African Revenue Service (SARS) permits individuals to trade up to a total allowance of R11 million in a calendar year for Crypto Arbitrage Trading. This consists of your Single Discretionary Allowance (SDA of R1 million) and your Foreign Investment Allowance (FIA of R10 million).

If you're a South African tax resident and over the age of 18, this investment opportunity is available to you.
