However, it could come to a higher price the same year and rise to $5.1.

What is Litecoin ?
Litecoin is a peer-to-peer decentralized cryptocurrency that was launched in 2011. Thus, it is considered one of the earliest altcoins. Although Litecoin was inspired by Bitcoin, the main purpose of creating it was to complement Bitcoin and improve everyday use. Some of the problems that Litecoin aimed to solve were the cost and speed of transactions. Litecoin is almost 4 times cheaper, and the mining process is much quicker than Bitcoin. However, the transactions are smaller in size. Almost 14400 Litecoin tokens are mined daily. Like Bitcoin, Litecoin also uses a Proof-of-Work mechanism to verify and protect the transactions on its network.
Is Litecoin legal to buy in Hungary
According to the Finance Ministry of Hungary, investing, trading and mining cryptocurrencies are legal in Hungary. But note that a legal definition for cryptocurrencies is still developing. This means that cryptocurrencies are not an official form of legal tender yet. Legal tenders are anything recognized by law as a means to settle a public or private debt or meet a financial obligation. It is estimated that Hungarians own about 300 billion HUF (850 million EUR) worth of cryptocurrencies.
Is Litecoin taxed in Hungary
Yes. According to the new regulation of National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV), from 2022, 15% personal income tax will apply to cryptocurrencies. But note that you only need to pay taxes when you exchange your cryptocurrencies for traditional currencies such as euros. You do not have to pay tax for exchanging a cryptocurrency for another cryptocurrency. According to the new regulation mentioned above, investors can deduct their losses from their tax base. Also under the same regulation, you can have the option to deduct expenses related to trading from your tax base, such as fees of crypto exchanges. Although the new regulation will make the taxation of cryptocurrencies more transparent, Hungary still lacks detailed regulation on this topic.
