How to buy Ethereum in Lithuania
Is ETH a good investment in Lithuania?
In its simplest definition, Ethereum is an open infrastructure based on blockchain technology on which decentralized computer programs can be run. The decentralization of Ethereum means that this system does not belong to anyone alone and it is not controlled by one or more specific people. Everyone can own this network and everyone can play a role in controlling it. Thanks to Ethereum's distributed and decentralized structure, once a program is implemented on the Ethereum network, it cannot be stopped or manipulated, even if the creator wants to.
Among the members of the digital currency community, the digital currency of the Ethereum network is also called Ethereum or Ether. Ether, like Bitcoin, is a digital currency that can easily transfer value. However, Ether's purpose is slightly different from Bitcoin's. This digital currency was created to pay for fees and as an incentive for contributors to continue working with Ethereum. Who would be willing to work as a miner or contributor to the network if Ether was not the key asset? This is why Ether is also called "the fuel of the Ethereum network". If Bitcoin is "digital gold", Ether is "digital oil".
What is Ethereum ?
The digital currency of the Ethereum network is called "Ether" and its abbreviated unit is ETH. This asset is considered the currency of the network as well as a way to pay fees and charges.
Is Ethereum 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 Ethereum 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.

To store Ether and Ethereum-based tokens, you need software or hardware called a "wallet". A wallet can be considered like a bank account that is used to store, receive and send money.
Ethereum software wallets are free and you can easily install them on mobile phones (Android and iOS) or PCs (Windows, Linux, and Mac). Some wallets are also web-based and can be accessed with internet browsers (such as Chrome). In contrast, hardware wallets, which are more secure, are physically available and must be purchased from reputable stores. It is necessary to take a backup copy of your wallet so that you can recover your funds if the wallet is deleted, the password is forgotten, or the device on which the wallet is installed is damaged.
