How to buy Stellar in Estonia
Is XLM a good investment in Estonia?
Like other cryptocurrencies, it’s hard to know if investing in XLM is profitable because it’s not predictable. However, some facts and data can help you analyze the performance of a token on the market. First, we can take a look at the history of XLM and its price in the past. XLM released in 2014 with the price of 0.002 USD. After a year, it reached 0.005 USD, which is almost twice its initial price. It means that if you had invested 1000 USD on buying Stellar or XLM, you could have 2500 USD after a year. Therefore, it would have been a profitable investment for one year. Additionally, the experts in this field believe that the coin might reach 10$ by 2030. This means it might be a valuable long-term investment.
Meanwhile, you should also know that like other cryptocurrencies, investing in XLM is risky too because any incident or news about this company or even other coins may affect the price of XLM. However, since Stellar is a practical network with fast and low-wage transactions, it is predictable that more and more people will start using this platform and its coin. The more this network grows, the more valuable it will get. Therefore, it’s more likely for it to be a successful investment than a failure. Furthermore, you don’t need to mine XLM like other coins; there are an exact number of this token out there that you can buy or sell.
What is Stellar ?
To learn more about XLM, we should take a deeper look at the Stellar network. Stellar is an open-source and decentralized network for digital currency that was created in 2014. Its process is so similar to ripple (XRP). While Ripple focuses on providing a solution for transfers between banks globally, Stellar aims to facilitate payments between people around the world. But the working method of both is almost the same. Stellar is a fast and cheap network, every transaction on this network is done in 6 seconds and will have a low fee of 0.0001 USD.

Is Stellar legal to buy in Estonia?
Estonia was among the first countries that legalized cryptocurrency and related economic activities. It was in November 2017 when a law was introduced that accepted cryptocurrency as a payment method to keep up with the development of technology. Therefore, activities such as mining, crypto investment, adding cryptocurrency to a company balance sheet, and even establishing a cryptocurrency exchange or wallet are allowed in this country.
Is Stellar 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.
