It experienced the lowest price of $0.48 in October of the same year. Supporting smart contracts and the flexibility of this coin made it one of the top cryptocurrencies in 2018 when its price mounted to $22.89. It shows how profitable this investment was for its first year. However, it didn't last long, and the EOS price dropped to $2.15 at the end of the same year.

It’s better to read more about the history of EOS, how you can use it and what top investors tell you about this coin. Furthermore, if you are a beginner, it’s better to have an exit point for your investment; so if the price of EOS dropped to that number, you sell it to prevent losing your money.
What is EOSIO ?
Although many know this blockchain by the name of EOS, the real name of the blockchain is EOSIO, which was designed by Block.one company. EOSIO is a decentralized blockchain network released in 2017. Its system is very similar to Ethereum, but faster, more flexible, and free of charge. These features made EIOSIO more popular than Ethereum, especially the speed of this network, which allows thousands of transactions per second (tps); compared to the 15 tps of the Ethereum system, EOSIO is really a winner. There are other benefits that the EOISIO system has that make it one of the top decentralized blockchains, including being user-friendly and supporting smart contracts and voting, which are predicted to become so useful in the near future.

Is EOSIO 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 EOSIO 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%.
