How to buy Aave in Belgium
Is AAVE a good investment in Belgium?
When the Aave coin was called LEND, its initial price was $0.01 per token. When the name changed to Aave in October 2020, every 100 LEND tokens were swapped to 1 Aave, and the price was around $50. Very soon, the Aave price rose to $87, which was due to the release of the new version of the protocol in December 2020, which made using the platform easier and more efficient. At the beginning of 2021, Aave continued to grow and reached $100, and only in a few months, it set a record of $638 per token in February of 2021. It showed that it was an excellent investment for Aave owners. Nevertheless, 2022 wasn’t that good for this coin because from the beginning of the year, it dropped to $256 and ended the year with a price of $62.
There are ups and downs in the history of all cryptocurrencies. Aave is not an exception. It was a good investment sometimes, but the price failure might make people rethink whether to buy this coin. First, no one can tell you if your investment will be profitable because the cryptocurrency world is volatile. However, crypto analysts and experts can give you hints about how the future might be for Aave. Most of them believe that the Aave price would rise to $180 by 2025 and might reach the highest value of $606 in 2030. Please note that these are only predictions and might not be %100 guaranteed.
What is Aave ?
Aaave is a decentralized Ethereum-based lending platform launched in 2017 to give this opportunity to crypto owners to receive loans. The process is based on smart contracts, which means every step of borrowing and lending crypto is automated. The borrower should keep cryptocurrency assets as collateral and receive 80% of that amount as a loan. All the processes of calculating the loan terms and giving the loans to the borrower are done automatically via smart contracts. Therefore, no one has access to this process as a third party. The process of lending and borrowing is also done from liquidity pools. Thus, the borrower and the lender won’t know each other either. Aave network was called Ethlend but it was renamed to Aave in 2020.
Is Aave legal to buy in Belgium
Yes. According to the press release by Belgium’s Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) and the National Bank of Belgium (NBB), and the definition of virtual money offered by FSMA, cryptocurrencies are popular digital investments that can be traded and sometimes can be used as means of payments but since they are not recognized as legal tender, they are not widely accepted like money. According to the mentioned press release, FMA and NBB state that crypto currencies can be bought and sold like assets and stock.
Is Aave taxed in Belgium
Yes. According to the Belgian Tax Code cryptocurrency gains are either subject to professional income tax (in accordance to Article 23 of Income Tax Code) or miscellaneous income (Article 90, 1° of Income Tax Code).
According to the Article 23 of above-mentioned Income Tax Code, if a person's professional occupation is trading cryptocurrencies, the profits generated from this occupation will be taxed as professional income, and will therefore be subject to the progressive tax rates that range between 25 and 50 percent in Belgium.
According to the Article 90, 1° of above-mentioned Income Tax Code, if a Belgian individual earns gains on cryptocurrency transactions not as a professional activity, they will benefit from a tax exemption on those gains, but only on condition that the transaction is realized within the boundaries of the normal management of their private wealth. According to the same Article 90, 1° of Income Tax Code, if an individual makes transactions in a very short timeframe by repeatedly selling at a high point and buying at a low point, they will be accounted as a trader. The trader is not engaged professionally, but these types of transactions will fall outside the normal management of private assets and are accounted as speculative capital gains and will be taxed at a flat rate of 33%.

Since Aave is a lending platform, its tokens are mostly used as collateral. Although borrowers can use different crypto as collateral on this platform, if they use AAVE they will get a discount. You can swap a limited amount of Aave coins with any other crypto. But it is not usable for purchasing goods. However, it might be possible in the future.
Meanwhile, most people buy Aave coins to receive a loan on the Aave network or keep the coins as an investment. The price history of the Aave coin showed it could be a profitable investment in the past. If you want to hold these coins as an investment, be patient and keep watching their price.
