How to buy Avalanche in Belgium
Is AVAX a good investment in Belgium?
Avalanche is an open-source platform for building custom and interactive blockchains, decentralized applications and smart assets. According to the platform's claim, in addition to high speed, strong security and significant scalability, Avalanche offers other features that can distinguish this network from other decentralized platforms. Among these features, we can mention the creation and management of custom blockchains, the possibility of specifying a set of specific validators, as well as the storage and trading of digital smart assets.
Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Avalanche introduces new paradigms to the blockchain world. Unlike other blockchain networks that only have one blockchain and one set of validators, Avalanche is a heterogeneous network of many blockchains and different sets of validators. Just as Ethereum allows people to create decentralized applications defined by a smart contract, Avalanche allows people to run decentralized applications defined by a virtual machine. But unlike Ethereum, in Avalanche, each decentralized application runs on its own independent blockchain, and each blockchain is checked and validated by a subnet; A subnet is a dynamic, customized set of validators. Using this feature, private blockchains can be created.
Avalanche is not only a platform for creating custom decentralized applications, but also supports the creation and trading of smart digital assets on its platform. This means that anyone can create their own token for their blockchain. In this network, an asset can have a complex and customized set of rules that define its properties (for example, a token that cannot be traded until next year). This feature allows users to achieve their desired efficiency and performance and continue working within the framework of the rules.

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 Avalanche 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%.
