LPT price rose to $8 in June of the 2019. it was almost stable in 2020 with an average price of $2 to $3. 2021 was a surprising year for LPT owners because its price suddenly mounted to $40 in April. After many ups and downs, LPT reached its highest value of $101 in November 2021. But that only lasted one day, the LPT price started to fall again and finished the year with a value of $50. The price of LPT continued to fall in 2022, and the token ended the year at $6.8.
LPT price had somehow been stable for most of the time. It had recorded the highest price of $101 and the lowest price of $0.57. Therefore, it was a good investment for a while. But, it is not clear if it will be as profitable as it was before. If you want to invest in the Livepeer token, checking the LPT price predictions will be helpful. However, you should also know that the predictions are not always true, and are only some expectations. Anyhow, most crypto analysts and experts believe that LPT will not have a surprising price change by 2025 when it might reach $60. It is also anticipated that LPT would reach $449 by 2030. Therefore, if the predictions become true, Livepeer could be a good investment.

Is Livepeer 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 Livepeer 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.
