How to buy Rarible in Switzerland
Is RARI a good investment in Switzerland?
RARI was released to the market in August 2020 with an initial price of $0.31, and very soon, it could reach $7. Thus, it was a wonderful investment for only a few months. However, it didn’t resume that well and ended the year with a price of $2. Although it seemed that RARI token holders were facing failure, 2021 was very amazing for them because the RARI price reached its highest record of $49 in March of 2021. After this record, the RARI price faced many ups and downs until it ended the year with a value of $13. 2022 started profitably for RARI holders. At the beginning of the year, the RARI price amounted to $23 and then fell again. It couldn’t set any price record and even dropped to $1.84 by the end of the year.
The history of the RARI token shows it was a good investment for its owners several times. However, it was stagnating and might seem uninteresting for people to buy. Furthermore, no one can tell you what may happen to this coin in the following years. But the price predictions may give you a hint about the expected future of RARI. Crypto analysts and experts expect the RARI price to go up again in the next 5 years and may become stable at $10 by 2026 and might reach $17 by 2030. Many also consider RARI a good short-term investment that would have a better profit in one year.
What is Rarible ?
Rarible is the first cryptocurrency dedicated to NFTs, launched in 2020. The main reason for creating such a platform was to secure the digital collections that are designed with blockchain technology. Its focus is on artistic assets. NFTs (non-fungible tokens) allow artists to keep the copyright of their artworks. Rarible works as a marketplace for its users to create, sell or buy digital collections or NFTs. Users can put a preview of their works on this platform, so others check and use their Rarible tokens to purchase the full version.
Is Rarible 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 Rarible 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.
