How to buy Matic in Belgium
Is Matic a good investment in Belgium?
Matic became a popular coin in 2021, which was a bad year for most cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin. Unlike most of the cryptocurrencies that were experiencing a decline, Matic could stay stable; and in a short time, its price increased. That’s why most people started buying Matic, and this token became one of the best tokens on the market. Matic's initial price in 2017 was $ $0.013. The fluctuations of the Matic price weren’t that much until 2021 when the price rose to $1 for the first time in its history. It recorded the highest price of $2.874 at the end of 2021 and then started to fall under $1 again. MATIC was trading for around $0.75 as of September 2022.
Investing in crypto is not possible if you can’t imagine what may happen in the future. However, it’s not clear for any of the cryptocurrencies, and no one can guarantee any predictions for its future. But analysts and crypto experts can give you hints about the future of a coin like Matic. Most experts and top investors believe that MATIC's price will increase in the long term. Therefore, they think this crypto might be a profitable long-term investment. They have expected the price of MATIC to be between $1.97 to $2.27 until 2027.
What is Polygon ?
Polygon is a cryptocurrency network that runs as a sidechain alongside Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 under the name of the Matic network. Later in February 2021, Matic was rebranded to Polygon. Now the Polygon is known as the network name, and its token is called Matic. Polygon was created by a group of Indian developers to help Ethereum expand in size, and increase its security and usefulness. Furthermore, Polygon is the home to a range of decentralized apps. People can participate in different actions on this platform, such as playing games, joining virtual worlds, creating smart contracts, and participating in various financial services. The aim of creating such a platform was to improve the speed of Ethereum-based platforms and reduce the costs of transactions on this network.
Is Matic 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 Matic 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%.
