Crypto-licenses around the world
Country? Just a list of rules and opportunities, choose crypto-license that suits you best
You have a choice
Years ago, entrepreneurs had a very limited choice of jurisdictions that offered a cryptocurrency license.
The lack of competition among jurisdictions, most often, led businessmen to the following choice: a reliable but expensive license to maintain or a cheap and useless one.
Fortunately, things are different today. You can choose the crypto license that suits your business model. And what is more important, it will be affordable for you.
Cryptolicense allows you to provide all the crypto-related services and stay in a safe, legal field.
Its also a great way to gain trust of your customers. Cryptocurrency itself is an independent means of payment and is often used in scams. However, a licensed company has same level of responsibility as traditional fiat-involved financial businesses.
And in case you want to attract investments, or planning to sell project later, crypto-license will significantly rise your company value.
