How do you buy polygon as regular stocks?

Polygon (MATIC) is a currency and not a company. Since investing in stocks actually is investing in companies, you can’t invest in polygon as if it were a stock.

However, it’s possible to buy your way into funds - ETFs or ETNs - that follow polygon’s rate. Instead of investing directly in polygon, you can invest in a fund that follows polygon’s exchange rate developments.

See polygon’s rate here.

What are ETFs and ETNs?

ETF stands for Exchange Traded Fund, while ETN stands for Exchange Traded Note. Both types of funds try to follow the rate developments of a particular market - such as the polygon market.

So, when polygon’s value rises by 20%, a successful ETF or ETN will also rise by 20%.

The difference between an ETF and ETN

An ETF owns the stocks it tries to follow. That means that when you invest in a polygon ETF, you’re investing in a fund that also owns polygon. An ETN doesn’t own the stocks it tries to follow. An ETN works similarly to a bond of debt. If you purchase a polygon ETN, the issuer of the ETN will then be indebted to you. The debt is then of the same value as the rise in value there has been on the market the ETN follows.

But since these are bonds of debt, where there’s no real ownership over actual assets, you could risk that the issuer goes bankrupt. This would mean that you could lose all the money you’ve invested.

With an ETF, the situation would rarely go this sideways. Because the ETF actually owns the assets - such as polygon - the ETF can then choose to sell their polygon tokens, in order to raise capital to pay back their investors.

There are pros and cons to both types of funds, which you should consider before investing.

How do polygon ETFs and ETNs work?

When you invest in ETFs or ETNs it works kind of like a stock. This means that gains and losses are taxed after existing taxation laws for stocks. Your investments can either be taxed as income on equity or as capital income, and further after the asset liquidation principle or inventory principle. Exactly as you know it from the regular stock world.

When you’re trading polygon as a currency, you don’t have access to income on equity. Here, certain taxation rules apply, which you can get more information on here.
