Is XRP a good investment in Estonia?
One thing you should check to find out if XRP is a good investment is checking its value over the years. In August of 2013, the first year after its release, each XRP was sold at 0.01 USD. Later in December 2017, it reached its highest price of 2.28 USD per unit. It shows the price of XRP rose more than 70,000 percent in only five years. Therefore, it was a great investment for people who bought even the minimum amount of this cryptocurrency. However, XRP had many ups and downs until it reached 0.42 USD in October 2022. Some investors believe that XRP may reach 100 USD per unit in the next 10 years, which is not impossible! The more the banks and financial institutions accept XRP in their transactions, the higher its price will get.
*Remember, the world of cryptocurrencies is so volatile, the price of a coin changes each day. Nothing is 100% guaranteed in this world. However, most of the analysts recommend thinking about a long-term investment while buying XRP. But you should still know that you are stepping into a risky world. As the price history shows, XRP had many ups and downs that shows the volatility of the cryptocurrency world. One day you may win and one incident in the world may affect the price of crypto and make you lose your investment. It is better to define an exit point for yourself. If the price of XRP went lower than that amount, sell your tokens.

Is Ripple taxed in Estonia
According to the Estonia Tax and Customs Board, cryptocurrency trading contains taxes in Estonia. People who buy cryptocurrency should pay tax in case of trading, converting to fiat, or paying the crypto to purchase something. They should declare all the transactions they have with cryptocurrency because the income from mining or trading any crypto is considered the business income of a person, which is included in the tax rules in Estonia.
The tax report should be declared once a year in March. Generally, if you keep the cryptocurrency as an investment and don’t do anything to it, you won’t need to pay taxes. For example, if you have kept the coins in a wallet for the whole year, you won’t need to mention it in your tax report. Only the profit you gain from selling or trading crypto is taxed. However, if you sell crypto at a lower price than you bought, you won’t need to pay tax for it. Only the profits from selling crypto are reported. Therefore, even if cryptocurrency assets are not tangible assets like a car or a house, that doesn’t bother tax authorities. The tax rate is 20% in Estonia.
