How to buy Decentraland in Switzerland
Is MANA a good investment in Switzerland?
Decentraland is a decentralized metaverse (virtual world). This metaverse operates on the platform of the Ethereum blockchain and was created to support the creation, development, hosting and sale of virtual property. Virtual worlds that provide this feature, lead users to a fascinating digital world where they can buy, sell, and build anything they can think of. Decentraland also provides its users with the possibility to purchase virtual property. Users of this metaverse can develop their property as an online and virtual business and a source of income. They can create different buildings and attractions in their virtual land and earn money through them. In addition, users also get good profits by selling their built properties.
Decentraland platform is supported by MANA which is an ERC-20 token that serves as the system's primary currency. Members of the Decentraland community can purchase virtual parcels of the VR platform with MANA. The entire virtual reality ecosystem, which has no central authority, is run and governed by users of Decentraland. The world serves as an alternative VR ecosystem where users can buy and sell virtual goods and real estate, play games, and do whatever they want with their land as long as the network's features permit it. Users are able to interact, manage, monetize, and develop the Decentraland metaverse, which simulates reality in a virtual setting.

Is Decentraland 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 Decentraland 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.
