How to buy Ethereum in France


Cryptoworld is getting wider every day. And this is easy to explain: tokens allow us to save and increase funds. Cryptocurrency differs from fiat currency in that it belongs only to people, not banks. Ethereum is the second most popular token in the world. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that it is built on a system of smart contracts. This allows you to make transactions quickly, and also opens up many other possibilities.

It is legal to buy and sell cryptocurrencies in France. As in most European countries, cryptocurrency is considered here as a way of earning money, and not as a means of exchange. Income from transactions with Bitcoin and Ether is subject to income tax, and organisations must necessarily register in order to operate.

It is not a problem to buy Ethereum in France, and our convenient Itez service will help you do it quickly and profitably for euros or dollars from a usual bank card. Read about it in the instructions below.
