How to buy Celsius in Belgium
Is CEL a good investment in Belgium?
CEL coin was released to the market in December 2018 with an initial price of $0.026. It didn’t have
many fluctuations for almost two years. It was in November 2020 when it finally could reach higher than
$1. Meanwhile, 2021 was a better year for CEL holders because the CEL price reached its highest value
of $8. As the numbers show, the CEL owners had increased their wealth eight times in one year, which
was a surprising profit. However, the CEL price dropped and ended the year at $3.82. CEL value had
many ups and downs in 2022, but it never rose more than $4 and ended the year at $0.5.
Investing in cryptocurrency is very risky. People would like to know if the future of the CEL token will be
profitable or not. The most important thing to know is that no one can forecast the future of a
cryptocurrency. Like everything else, it can’t be foreseen. But to make it easier for the investors to
decide on buying a coin, analysts and crypto experts usually give price predictions based on the analysis
they do. They think the price of CEL tokens might reach $13 by 2025. The analyses also predict that this
coin might have a price of $19 by 2030. However, you should still consider that these are just predictions
and you should not do any investment only based on these numbers.
What is Celsius ?
Celsius is a peer-to-peer lending platform launched in 2018. It is created to facilitate the process of
borrowing and lending using blockchain. In this network, users can put CEL tokens as collateral, receive
fiat currency, and pay back with a small fee. The lenders are rewarded with CEL tokens. Furthermore,
the Celsius network has an appealing loyalty program for its users. Members who reach a higher level in
this loyalty program will receive rewards or discounts on their loan interest.
Is Celsius 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 Celsius 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%.
