How to buy TRON in Switzerland
Is TRX a good investment in Switzerland?
Tron (TRX) is one of the digital currencies that has been very profitable for its investors over the years, especially those who have entered the currency market for the first time. In 2017, Tron was released in the market at a price of $0.002. In January 2018, the price of each unit of Tron reached $0.028. This means that Tron has grown by more than 10,000% in one month. In 2018, due to the downward trend of all currencies, Tron also found a downward trend. But it still had one of the best performances among other currencies in terms of price. The price fluctuated a little bit over the following three months before experiencing another uptick at the end of April 2018 when TRX doubled in less than two weeks. The price changes over the ensuing two years weren't as eventful as earlier ones. The price of TRX started to increase at the beginning of 2021 and, for the first time in nearly three years, it broke through $0.06. Even though the current crypto market is going through a fluctuating pattern, some crypto market professionals have predicted that TRX would reach $0.15 in 2025 and will be traded for at least $1.37 in 2030. Still, keep in mind that this is not a buying signal. We recommend entering the crypto market after examinations and receiving consultancy from experts.
What is TRON ?
Tron is a kind of decentralized entertainment system and content sharing platform that works using blockchain technology and peer to peer network. This protocol allows all users to publish, store and own data and content in a completely free, decentralized and automatic way. You can consider Tron as the next generation of social networks that you can use to create content and share it with other people anywhere in the world. The TRON protocol is among the largest blockchain-based operating systems in the world. This network is highly scalable and has high throughput.

Is TRON 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 TRON 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.
