How do you buy solana as regular stocks?

Because solana (SOL) is a currency, and not a business, you can’t actually invest directly in solana like it’s a stock.

What you could do is to buy and sell solana as a currency by signing up to Lunar Block - and you can do all that directly from your Lunar app.

If you’d rather invest in solana like stocks - maybe because there are other tax regulations for stocks versus cryptocurrencies - you do have some options.

For example, you could buy your way into some funds - ETFs or ETNs - who follow the rate of solana. Then, instead of investing directly in solana, you’re investing in a fund that follows the rate of solana’s rate developments.

What are ETFs and ETNs?

ETF stands for Exchange Traded Fund, while ETN stands for Exchange Traded Note. Both types try to follow the rate developments of a certain market – such as the solana market.

So, when solana sees a 20% increase in value, a successful ETF or ETN will then also see a 20% increase in value. 

The difference between ETFs and ETNs

An ETF owns the stocks it tries to follow. That means that when you invest in a solana ETF, you’re investing in a fund that also owns solana. An ETN doesn’t own the stocks it tries to follow. An ETN works similarly to a bond of debt. If you purchase a solana 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 solana - the ETF can then choose to sell their solana coins, 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 solana ETFs and ETNs work?

When you invest in ETFs or ETNs it works sort 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 solana 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.

Be aware that you can’t use your solana coins for staking with ETFs and ETNs. In short, solana staking is when you use your solana coins to ‘work’ for the blockchain network - a work which is rewarded with more solana coins.

Because ETFs and ETNs do not give you any ownership of solana coins, you can’t use them for staking, which would otherwise be an option, had you invested directly in them.
