How to buy Bitcoin Cash in Lithuania
Is BCH a good investment in Lithuania?
Bitcoin Cash crypto (known as BCH) was released in 2017 with an initial price of $440. At the very beginning, BCH surprised everyone with its price rise to $621 in only a few months. Surprisingly, BCH set a record for the all-time highest price of $2,940 in December of the same year. It was shocking for BCH owners because, in less than a year, their investment had delivered almost 6 times the profit. However, 2018 wasn’t that good for people who decided to invest in BCH at the end of 2017, because every month the price dropped until it reached $81 per token in December of 2018. The next year wasn’t so fluctuating for BCH and almost passed with a stable price between $300 to $400. The same happened in 2020. In 2021, the BCH price again climbed and reached $1,454 per coin, and became a highly profitable investment for its owners.
BCH had ups and downs, like any other cryptocurrency. It had shown many times that it could be a profitable investment. However, no one knows what may happen to its future. Therefore, when you want to purchase this coin, you may wonder if it will be a good investment. To answer this question, you need to check several things to understand if BCH might be on growth or may fall. One of them is BCH price predictions. Crypto analysts and experts analyze the performance of crypto and other factors to forecast its future. Most analysts believe BCH's price might reach $2000 by 2030, which means it may be a good long-term investment.
What is Bitcoin Cash ?
Bitcoin Cash was released in 2017 as a hard fork of Bitcoin, which means it was split from the original protocol to solve the problems regarding scalability, low speed, and high fees that Bitcoin had. Bitcoin Cash is technically and structurally similar to Bitcoin, but it can pack 4 to 8 times larger data into each block. It can also process 116 transactions per second, which means blocks are bigger, and yet the speed is higher compared to Bitcoin. Furthermore, due to its fees, Bitcoin wasn’t suitable for everyday purchases anymore. Thus, Bitcoin Cash was created as an alternative to Bitcoin for everyday use.
Is Bitcoin Cash legal to buy in Lithuania
Yes. According to the AML/CTF Law, the Lithuanian government allows legal financial transactions with cryptocurrency and offers transparent authorizations for the use of virtual currencies. According to the Bank of Lithuania (LB), cryptocurrency also known as virtual currency is non-regulated digital money that can be used as means of payment, and this money is issued and guaranteed by a non-central bank. It is estimated that over 70 thousand people, 2.58% of Lithuania's total population, currently own cryptocurrency.
Is Bitcoin Cash taxed in Lithuania
Yes. According to Art. 2 (14) of Lithuania Law on Personal Income Tax (PITL), the Lithuania State Tax Inspectorate (VMI) states that virtual currency is considered as property; therefore, when income from sales of a virtual currency is received, it is taxable the same as other income from sales of assets or other transfer into ownership. In this case, the difference between sales and the acquisition price is taxed, and the Personal Income Tax rate is 15% on such an income. Also, VMI indicates that according to Art. 17 (1) (27) of Personal Income Tax Law, if taxable profit received from a non-regular sale of cryptocurrency during 12 months is less than EUR 2500, Personal Income Tax is not applied on such a profit.
