Anyone can guide on bitcoins trading in Switzerland?

Opening a legitimate company with the sole purpose of trading cryptocurrency in Switzerland, is it doable? I mean, does Switzerland recognise bitcoins as revenue and tax it accordingly?

I am not a wealth of knowledge, I own a few and litecoin.

In Zurich it was put on my tax form and then the Swiss use a set exchange rate as of the 31 December for the major coins, convert it to a Swiss Franc value and tax it as if it is any other currency in your bank account. Relatively easy.

To have a business and business tax etc, writing off loses and expenses, no idea.

Can the company be opened by a EU citizen or even non-EU to your knowledge, or Swiss residency is required?
