How to buy Aave in Ireland
Is AAVE a good investment in Ireland?
When the Aave coin was called LEND, its initial price was $0.01 per token. When the name changed to Aave in October 2020, every 100 LEND tokens were swapped to 1 Aave, and the price was around $50. Very soon, the Aave price rose to $87, which was due to the release of the new version of the protocol in December 2020, which made using the platform easier and more efficient. At the beginning of 2021, Aave continued to grow and reached $100, and only in a few months, it set a record of $638 per token in February of 2021. It showed that it was an excellent investment for Aave owners. Nevertheless, 2022 wasn’t that good for this coin because from the beginning of the year, it dropped to $256 and ended the year with a price of $62.
There are ups and downs in the history of all cryptocurrencies. Aave is not an exception. It was a good investment sometimes, but the price failure might make people rethink whether to buy this coin. First, no one can tell you if your investment will be profitable because the cryptocurrency world is volatile. However, crypto analysts and experts can give you hints about how the future might be for Aave. Most of them believe that the Aave price would rise to $180 by 2025 and might reach the highest value of $606 in 2030. Please note that these are only predictions and might not be %100 guaranteed.
What is Aave ?
Aaave is a decentralized Ethereum-based lending platform launched in 2017 to give this opportunity to crypto owners to receive loans. The process is based on smart contracts, which means every step of borrowing and lending crypto is automated. The borrower should keep cryptocurrency assets as collateral and receive 80% of that amount as a loan. All the processes of calculating the loan terms and giving the loans to the borrower are done automatically via smart contracts. Therefore, no one has access to this process as a third party. The process of lending and borrowing is also done from liquidity pools. Thus, the borrower and the lender won’t know each other either. Aave network was called Ethlend but it was renamed to Aave in 2020.
Is Aave legal to buy in Ireland
Yes. According to a press release by the Director of Financial Regulation which was published
by the Central Bank of Ireland, blockchain and cryptographic technology have the potential to
bring significant benefits to the economy and to the users of financial services, since
cryptocurrency is being deployed in different situations and for various purposes such as
supporting smart contracts, engaging in payment services, investment activities or, as is often
the case, speculation.
Is Aave taxed in Ireland
Yes. According to the Irish Tax and Customs Agency (Revenue), if an Irish resident sells a
crypto asset and gains profit from it, any gain would be treated as capital gain and could be
subject to capital gains tax (currently 33%). According to the above-mentioned document, if an
Irish individual was carrying on a ‘trade’ of dealing in cryptocurrency, any profit on the selling of
crypto assets would be subject to income tax, the income tax rates can be up to 55% (including
universal social charge and social insurance). According to the above-mentioned Irish Tax
Agency reference, a trade in crypto-assets would be similar in nature to a trade in shares,
securities, or other assets. Where a person makes a trading profit or loss on crypto-asset
transactions this must be reflected in their accounts and will be taxable in accordance with
normal Income Tax rules.
After you've bought Aave in Ireland
Aave tokens are called utility and governance coins. The main use of this token is for voting on the system to propose new features and ask for updates. Since Aave is a lending platform, its tokens are mostly used as collateral. Although borrowers can use different crypto as collateral on this platform, if they use AAVE they will get a discount. You can swap a limited amount of Aave coins with any other crypto. But it is not usable for purchasing goods. However, it might be possible in the future.
Meanwhile, most people buy Aave coins to receive a loan on the Aave network or keep the coins as an investment. The price history of the Aave coin showed it could be a profitable investment in the past. If you want to hold these coins as an investment, be patient and keep watching their price. If you are a beginner, only invest as much money as you afford to lose because the future of cryptocurrency is unpredictable.
