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