How to buy Ethereum in Sweden
Is ETH a good investment in Sweden?
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 Sweden
Yes. According to an overview of fintech and crypto-assets document by the Financial Stability
Department of Sweden, cryptocurrencies are digital assets which can be bought, sold,
transferred and held and used mainly as speculative investments; which means that they are
bought in the hope that they will gain value. According to the above-mentioned document,
legislation aimed at counteracting money laundering and terrorist financing is often applicable
also for crypto-assets and related operations.
Is Ethereum taxed in Sweden
Yes. According to the declaration by the Supreme Administrative Court in Sweden,
cryptocurrencies are not considered similar to foreign currencies, shares, or equities from a tax
perspective. Instead, cryptocurrencies are viewed as other assets and are taxed according to
Chapter 52 of the Swedish Income Tax Act. According to the mentioned tax act, your
cryptocurrency activity may be subject to three different types of taxes: Capital Gains Tax,
Income tax and Interest Income Tax. As could be taken from the tax act, cryptocurrency sales
are subject to capital gain tax of 30% rate on the profits you make. If you have earned crypto for
some form of service or work, then you need to pay typical income tax, but if you decide to hold
the cryptocurrency that you received, then you will need to pay capital gains tax on the profits or
losses that can happen when you sell them. If you have received crypto in the form of loan
interest or staking rewards, then you will be subject to interest income tax at a rate of 30%. It is
highly recommended to consult a professional on the details of your taxations.

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.
