How to buy Stellar in Sweden
Is XLM a good investment in Sweden?
Like other cryptocurrencies, it’s hard to know if investing in XLM is profitable because it’s not predictable. However, some facts and data can help you analyze the performance of a token on the market. First, we can take a look at the history of XLM and its price in the past. XLM released in 2014 with the price of 0.002 USD. After a year, it reached 0.005 USD, which is almost twice its initial price. It means that if you had invested 1000 USD on buying Stellar or XLM, you could have 2500 USD after a year. Therefore, it would have been a profitable investment for one year. Additionally, the experts in this field believe that the coin might reach 10$ by 2030. This means it might be a valuable long-term investment.
Meanwhile, you should also know that like other cryptocurrencies, investing in XLM is risky too because any incident or news about this company or even other coins may affect the price of XLM. However, since Stellar is a practical network with fast and low-wage transactions, it is predictable that more and more people will start using this platform and its coin. The more this network grows, the more valuable it will get. Therefore, it’s more likely for it to be a successful investment than a failure. Furthermore, you don’t need to mine XLM like other coins; there are an exact number of this token out there that you can buy or sell.
What is Stellar ?
To learn more about XLM, we should take a deeper look at the Stellar network. Stellar is an open-source and decentralized network for digital currency that was created in 2014. Its process is so similar to ripple (XRP). While Ripple focuses on providing a solution for transfers between banks globally, Stellar aims to facilitate payments between people around the world. But the working method of both is almost the same. Stellar is a fast and cheap network, every transaction on this network is done in 6 seconds and will have a low fee of 0.0001 USD.
Is Stellar 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 Stellar 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.
