How to buy Storj in Switzerland
Is STORJ a good investment in Switzerland?
STORJ token was released in July 2017 with an initial price of $0.52. After a huge rise and fall, it started
2018 with a surprising value of $3.13, which was great news for STORJ owners because they could triple
their capital in less than a year. However, it didn’t last long, and the price fell and ended the year at
$0.13. The STORJ price didn’t have any rise or notable fluctuations in 2019 and 2020. The average price
for these two years was $0.45. But 2021 surprised STORJ holders again with a price record of $3.98. Like
most cryptocurrencies, STORJ didn’t have a great year in 2022, and its price fell to $0.27.
STORJ had good days and bad days in its history. The future of this coin is not clear though. If you want
to invest in this coin, you need to have this mindset of how well this coin might perform in the next
years. That is something analysts do. Therefore, it is a good idea to check STORJ price predictions to
have something in your mind about its future. Although it is just a prediction, it can still be helpful. The
highest price predicted for STORJ by 2025 is $1.45. Crypto analysts also believe that STORJ might be a

What is Storj ?
Storj is a cloud storage platform founded in 2014 as a decentralized alternative to the centralized cloud
storage that some companies like Amazon or Google had offered. Unlike the centralized platforms, on
Storj's decentralized platform, people share or rent the free spaces they have on their hard drives with
people who need somewhere to put their data. This storage can be used for video streaming or
software distribution. The Storj users can make money by sharing the free space on their computers.
However, they receive their rewards with Storj native tokens called STORJ.
Is Storj 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 Storj 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.
