What is Litecoin ?
Litecoin is a peer-to-peer decentralized cryptocurrency that was launched in 2011. Thus, it is considered one of the earliest altcoins. Although Litecoin was inspired by Bitcoin, the main purpose of creating it was to complement Bitcoin and improve everyday use. Some of the problems that Litecoin aimed to solve were the cost and speed of transactions. Litecoin is almost 4 times cheaper, and the mining process is much quicker than Bitcoin. However, the transactions are smaller in size. Almost 14400 Litecoin tokens are mined daily. Like Bitcoin, Litecoin also uses a Proof-of-Work mechanism to verify and protect the transactions on its network.
Is Litecoin 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 Litecoin 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.
