How to buy Avalanche in Switzerland

Is AVAX a good investment in Switzerland?

Avalanche is an open-source platform for building custom and interactive blockchains, decentralized applications and smart assets. According to the platform's claim, in addition to high speed, strong security and significant scalability, Avalanche offers other features that can distinguish this network from other decentralized platforms. Among these features, we can mention the creation and management of custom blockchains, the possibility of specifying a set of specific validators, as well as the storage and trading of digital smart assets.

Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Avalanche introduces new paradigms to the blockchain world. Unlike other blockchain networks that only have one blockchain and one set of validators, Avalanche is a heterogeneous network of many blockchains and different sets of validators. Just as Ethereum allows people to create decentralized applications defined by a smart contract, Avalanche allows people to run decentralized applications defined by a virtual machine. But unlike Ethereum, in Avalanche, each decentralized application runs on its own independent blockchain, and each blockchain is checked and validated by a subnet; A subnet is a dynamic, customized set of validators. Using this feature, private blockchains can be created.

Avalanche is not only a platform for creating custom decentralized applications, but also supports the creation and trading of smart digital assets on its platform. This means that anyone can create their own token for their blockchain. In this network, an asset can have a complex and customized set of rules that define its properties (for example, a token that cannot be traded until next year). This feature allows users to achieve their desired efficiency and performance and continue working within the framework of the rules.

Is Avalanche taxed in Switzerland

Yes. According to the established tax legislation defined by The Swiss Federal Tax Service (SFTA), cryptocurrencies are assets. This means that they are subject to Swiss wealth, income and capital gains taxes and must be declared in annual tax returns. The mentioned tax legislation treats crypto assets similar to stocks, bonds and real estate in Switzerland. According to the mentioned document above, if you are a private crypto investor, your crypto profits will be completely exempt from Capital Gains Tax. This is as long as you fulfill these five criteria:

  1.     transaction volumes should not exceed five times the original capital
  2.     holding period of crypto assets should be six months or more
  3.     capital gains should be less than 50% of overall taxable income
  4.     minimal usage of third-party financing (buy assets with your money)
  5.     derivatives only used as a hedging tool

Note that as stated by the tax legislation document, if you violate two or more criteria, chances are that you may not be considered a private investor but a self-employed trader instead. If you are not sure that you will be considered a private investor or a self-employed trader, we recommend consulting a tax professional in Switzerland or the SFTA directly.

According to the tax legislation document, private investors don’t have to pay tax on their trading profits, but you might still need to pay Income Tax on cryptocurrency. Having your salary from a job being paid in a cryptocurrency, getting paid in crypto in exchange for services if you are a freelancer, or receiving crypto from activities such as mining will be considered income by the FTA.

Delegators can choose to stake with an existing validator by committing a minimum of 25 AVAX if they want to take part in staking. To make AVAX scarcer, all processing fees on Avalanche are burned. In conclusion, AVAX can be used to participate in the governance of the Avalanche ecosystem or it can be used as an investment.
