Is ECS a good investment in Belgium?
The eCredits Ecosystem is a decentralized, blockchain-based ecosystem with its own native,
usable cryptocurrency, called eCredits (ECS). According to the official website of eCredits, by
using the eCredits Blockchain, local and regional micro-ecosystems will be able to develop,
provide, and sell services and goods. This movement will be supported by the eCredits
ecosystem, which aims to provide a platform for this aim. These services are designed to aid
micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) in competing on an equal footing or even
surpassing larger market participants. As a result, local businesses will be able to connect with
their customers on a whole new and direct level. This will give local suppliers opportunities to
reward their customers by enabling them to earn discounts and bonuses through repeated
purchases. Since eCredits ecosystem is built on and powered by blockchain technology, which
is by its very nature decentralized and secure, it also supports diversity and incorporates social
values like equality into its functionality. With regard to making purchases from small businesses
and retailers, eCredits wants to become the method of choice for customers. The overall goal of
eCredits is to encourage local shopping, strengthen neighborhood communities, and promote
more environmentally friendly behaviors

Is eCredits 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 eCredits 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%.
