How to buy Matic in Hungary
Is Matic a good investment in Hungary?
Matic became a popular coin in 2021, which was a bad year for most cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin. Unlike most of the cryptocurrencies that were experiencing a decline, Matic could stay stable; and in a short time, its price increased. That’s why most people started buying Matic, and this token became one of the best tokens on the market. Matic's initial price in 2017 was $ $0.013. The fluctuations of the Matic price weren’t that much until 2021 when the price rose to $1 for the first time in its history. It recorded the highest price of $2.874 at the end of 2021 and then started to fall under $1 again. MATIC was trading for around $0.75 as of September 2022.
Investing in crypto is not possible if you can’t imagine what may happen in the future. However, it’s not clear for any of the cryptocurrencies, and no one can guarantee any predictions for its future. But analysts and crypto experts can give you hints about the future of a coin like Matic. Most experts and top investors believe that MATIC's price will increase in the long term. Therefore, they think this crypto might be a profitable long-term investment. They have expected the price of MATIC to be between $1.97 to $2.27 until 2027.
What is Polygon ?
Polygon is a cryptocurrency network that runs as a sidechain alongside Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 under the name of the Matic network. Later in February 2021, Matic was rebranded to Polygon. Now the Polygon is known as the network name, and its token is called Matic. Polygon was created by a group of Indian developers to help Ethereum expand in size, and increase its security and usefulness. Furthermore, Polygon is the home to a range of decentralized apps. People can participate in different actions on this platform, such as playing games, joining virtual worlds, creating smart contracts, and participating in various financial services. The aim of creating such a platform was to improve the speed of Ethereum-based platforms and reduce the costs of transactions on this network.
Is Matic 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 Matic 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.
