Your frequently asked questions
How are QuickSwap token swaps taxed?
Generally speaking, any gain from crypto to crypto trades - including tokens - is subject to Capital Gains Tax. However, crypto tax varies depending on where you live (so make sure to read our crypto tax guides).
How is QuickSwap liquidity supply taxed?
Most tax offices haven't released dedicated guidance on liquidity provision for dexes yet. This said, the conservative position is to assume these transactions are taxable. As you receive LP tokens when you provide liquidity on QuickSwap, this may be viewed as a crypto to crypto trade and therefore any gain as a result of adding or removing liquidity may be taxable.
How is earn dQUICK taxed?
if you want to increase your QUICK rewards, you can stake your QUICK in the Dragon's Lair and you'll receive dQUICK - a token that allows you to increase your QUICK earnings. While generally staking rewards where you earn new tokens may be taxed as income, in this instance, you don't earn more dQUICK tokens - instead the value of your dQUICK tokens increases. So from a tax perspective, when you stake your QUICK, you receive dQUICK - which may be a crypto to crypto trade. Similarly, when you unstake your QUICK, you'll trade dQUICK for QUICK. This means these transactions may be taxed as crypto to crypto trades, which means any gain from these transactions is generally subject to Capital Gains Tax.
