How to buy Stellar in Hungary
Is XLM a good investment in Hungary?
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 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 Stellar 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.
