How to buy Chiliz in Switzerland
Is CHZ a good investment in Switzerland?
CHZ coins were released to the market in 2018. But it didn’t have any price until July 2019, when it started to become more popular among sports fans. The initial price of CHZ was $0.02, and it didn’t change for one year. Then it had a price jump in 2021 and suddenly reached its highest value of $0.89. The rest of the year passed with an average price of $0.50. Like most cryptocurrencies, 2022 wasn’t that much great for CHZ owners. Its price fluctuated a lot, but never reached that high to set a record. It ended the year with a price of $0.10.
Cryptocurrency investors often want to know what the cryptocurrency's future holds. But the future is unpredictable, especially in the volatile world of cryptocurrencies. However, to make it easier to decide about buying a coin, analysts and crypto experts analyze the past and current situation of the crypto market and give price predictions, which can be useful but should not be the only factor you pick to decide on buying crypto. They think the CHZ price might finally get higher than $1 by 2028 and would rise as high as $3 by 2030.
What is Chiliz ?
Chiliz is the world's first cryptocurrency dedicated to sports fans. Socios is the platform that works with this cryptocurrency. Sports clubs can create Fan Tokens on this platform, and their fans can buy tokens with their favorite sports club's logo to show their support. They also can trade the tokens with others. The Fan Tokens show interest in a particular sports team, especially football clubs. The platform was launched in December 2019. The first sports partner to this platform was the Italian soccer team of Turin.
Is Chiliz legal to buy in Switzerland
Switzerland is one of the most well-known banking and financial centers in the world. The country is progressive on the development of cryptocurrencies. In January 2018, Swiss Economy Minister Johann Schneider Ammann stated that he sought to make Switzerland a “crypto nation”. According to the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) and the Switzerland Federal Tax Administration (SFTA), cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies are legal and classified as assets or property.
Is Chiliz 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:
- transaction volumes should not exceed five times the original capital
- holding period of crypto assets should be six months or more
- capital gains should be less than 50% of overall taxable income
- minimal usage of third-party financing (buy assets with your money)
- 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.
After you've bought Chiliz in Switzerland
CHZ is used on the Socios platform by sports fans. They usually use this token to purchase NFTs, which are the particular token with their famous sports team logo. They can play a role in the decisions of their favorite team by voting on different polls. The more sports team participate in this platform; the higher the value of its digital asset may be. Furthermore, you should transfer your coins to your account in the Socios platform to be able to use them for the mentioned operations.
The other option you have after buying CHZ is to keep it as an investment, which is a risky job. Because no one can guarantee that Chiliz is a good investment or may have a higher value in the future. Therefore, you should check different factors, read the analyses about this coin, then decide on buying it. Furthermore, as a beginner, it is always recommended to start with a limited amount of money and have an exit point for your investment to reduce the risk of loss.
