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 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.
