Cyptocurrency foreign exchange

I am doing some cryptocurrency exchange and the amount is now just at $9000.

I read somewhere that if it exceeds AUD10,000, the profit will be assessed as taxable income.


Here I have a question.

If I buy coins with AUD at Australian exchange like BTC market and transfer to forgeign exchange and sell it forgen currency.

In this situation, if I do not turn this foreign currency into AUD and keep it at foreign exchange and do not bring it back to Australia, is it still taxable?


I have tried to find the answer for it many times but can't find it.


Could you please see this and answer ?


Thank you in advance
