Crypto license in Estonia: what is it and what types exist?

A crypto license is a special permit, according to which it is possible to provide services for the exchange and saving of cryptocurrencies. Since the blockchain is considered a crypto payment instrument, it, like any other financial institution, requires a license to operate.

There are countries in which cryptocurrency is not yet passed at the legislative level. In Estonia, this issue is regulated by the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act, which is why a single cryptocurrency license is required. Estonian legislation offers favorable business conditions, including a simplified procedure for obtaining a crypto license.

Licensing of cryptocurrency transactions assumes that they can be performed absolutely legally and safely. In particular, this applies to exchange and savings cryptocurrency transactions.

In accordance with this, a crypto license in Estonia can be of two categories:

  • official permission for intermediary services for the exchange of cryptocurrency for finite funds or vice versa;
  • a license for services for saving cryptocurrencies in virtual wallets with user access keys or for transfers.

That is, for the activities of both the supplier and exchanger of cryptocurrency.

You can issue a license for the exchange of crypts in state bodies of this specialization or in authorized institutions. Our company provides assistance in obtaining a permit and is ready to assist your enterprise so that you can obtain a license for the exchange of cryptocurrencies in Estonia.
