What is Storj ?
Storj is a cloud storage platform founded in 2014 as a decentralized alternative to the centralized cloud
storage that some companies like Amazon or Google had offered. Unlike the centralized platforms, on
Storj's decentralized platform, people share or rent the free spaces they have on their hard drives with
people who need somewhere to put their data. This storage can be used for video streaming or
software distribution. The Storj users can make money by sharing the free space on their computers.

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 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.

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%.
