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.

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 Latvia
Yes. According to the explanation of the virtual assets document by the Latvian Financial and
Capital Market Commission, a virtual asset or cryptocurrency is a digital representation of value
not issued or guaranteed by a central bank or any other public authority, that may be digitally
transmitted, stored, or traded, and that may function as a medium of exchange for payment of
goods or services with persons who mutually agree to accept the virtual currency.
Is Aave taxed in Latvia
Yes. According to the Latvian Income Tax Act, there are two types of income that come from
selling cryptocurrencies: 1. Capital gains and 2. Income from economic activity.
According to the above-mentioned Income Tax law, capital gain from selling crypto assets is the
difference between the purchase cost and the disposal cost of the crypto assets. If it is not
possible to determine the purchase price of virtual currency, the purchase price is considered to
be 0. As stated in Latvian Income Tax Act, income from economic activity is triggered when the
virtual currency is sold as part of an economic activity or it is generated or received as payment
for goods, services or an occupation. In this case, economic activity must be registered and
personal income tax must be paid in total. Both capital gains and income from economic activity
are subject to a personal income tax rate of 20%.
