How to buy Matic in Switzerland
Is Matic a good investment in Switzerland?
Matic became a popular coin in 2021, which was a bad year for most cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin. Unlike most of the cryptocurrencies that were experiencing a decline, Matic could stay stable; and in a short time, its price increased. That’s why most people started buying Matic, and this token became one of the best tokens on the market. Matic's initial price in 2017 was $ $0.013. The fluctuations of the Matic price weren’t that much until 2021 when the price rose to $1 for the first time in its history. It recorded the highest price of $2.874 at the end of 2021 and then started to fall under $1 again. MATIC was trading for around $0.75 as of September 2022.
Investing in crypto is not possible if you can’t imagine what may happen in the future. However, it’s not clear for any of the cryptocurrencies, and no one can guarantee any predictions for its future. But analysts and crypto experts can give you hints about the future of a coin like Matic. Most experts and top investors believe that MATIC's price will increase in the long term. Therefore, they think this crypto might be a profitable long-term investment. They have expected the price of MATIC to be between $1.97 to $2.27 until 2027.
What is Polygon ?
Polygon is a cryptocurrency network that runs as a sidechain alongside Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 under the name of the Matic network. Later in February 2021, Matic was rebranded to Polygon. Now the Polygon is known as the network name, and its token is called Matic. Polygon was created by a group of Indian developers to help Ethereum expand in size, and increase its security and usefulness. Furthermore, Polygon is the home to a range of decentralized apps. People can participate in different actions on this platform, such as playing games, joining virtual worlds, creating smart contracts, and participating in various financial services. The aim of creating such a platform was to improve the speed of Ethereum-based platforms and reduce the costs of transactions on this network.

Is Matic 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 Matic 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.

You might be able to use it in other ways, such as voting on network upgrades, creating smart contracts, trading with NFTs, buying art, or playing games. As mentioned earlier, MATIC can’t be used to buy regular products online. Until now, none of the brands and companies have accepted this coin on their website or as a payment.
