How to buy Compound in Italy
Is COMP a good investment in Italy?
The Compound protocol is a decentralized lending and borrowing platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Compound allows users to lend and borrow a variety of different cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum and stable coins, using smart contracts. Both sides of the transaction, the lender and the borrower, who operate on this platform, due to its decentralized nature, only deal with the compound platform and there is no middleman involved. The interest rates on loans and transactions are determined by supply and demand, with borrowers earning interest on their deposited assets and lenders earning interest on the assets they lend out. The COMP token is used to govern the protocol and gives token holders the ability to vote on changes to the Compound protocol. Additionally, users who supply assets to the protocol are rewarded with COMP tokens as interest. Due to the activity of this currency on the blockchain, all information related to transactions are recorded and published in a completely transparent manner; Therefore, the possibility of fraud and abuse is reduced. Also, its decentralized nature increases its liquidity.
In a nutshell, Compound simply works like a decentralized bank and allows users to deposit and receive interest. However, unlike traditional banks that sometimes have negative interest or may have control over deposits, the blockchain platform of Compound does not allow any person or organization to manage and access users' assets.

Is Compound legal to buy in Italy?
There is no doubt that Italy is grossing in the global economic field by expanding its horizons on digital investment. However, the laws and regulations regarding cryptocurrencies are not fully developed yet. According to the public authority responsible for regulating the Italian financial markets (CONSOB), the ownership and trading of cryptocurrencies are not considered illegal in Italy. But you should keep in mind that there are no definite regulations about taxation. While crypto-assets do not have a specific regulatory status in Italy, the only Italian laws and regulations that provide a definition applicable to them are those concerning anti-money laundering regulations. It is estimated that 2.3% of the Italian population, which is approximately 1.3 million people, own crypto assets in Italy.
Is Compound taxed in Italy
The Italian Tax Administration, also known as Agenzia Delle Entrate, is still developing official tax guidance on the topic of cryptocurrency taxation. However, two resolutions issued by Agenzia Entrate in the past are currently being used to form the basis for how cryptocurrencies are taxed in Italy.
According to Resolution no. 72 /E/2016, profits from trading cryptocurrencies are not considered taxable income due to the lack of speculative nature. However, in Resolution no. 788/2021 it is mentioned that if the person’s total wallet or account balance exceeds €51,645.69 for a minimum of seven consecutive days during the tax year, the profits from selling, exchanging, or disposing of cryptocurrencies are taxed as capital gains at a flat rate of 26%. This is good news for all Italian crypto investors considering you are not paying taxes on your profits as long as your total portfolio value does not exceed €51,645.69 for seven or more consecutive days.

Hardware wallets are one of the best and safest ways to store digital currencies. This method is especially recommended for people who have a lot of digital assets and want to invest and deposit them for a long time.
