The European Union traditionally remains on the TOP list of destinations for crypto currency investments. Still, the huge market is a bit overregulated. The registration and licensing requirements vary from state to state. That may create extra obstacles for running a crypto business between different EU states.

Even if this is the case, addressing such requirements for cryptocurrencies is possible. Moreover, they are aiming at making the market transparent and suitable for crypto investments. This is especially important for any virtual service provider, including a crypto exchange. It has to obtain a cryptocurrency license to act in the market – that is the TOP important issue that Prifinance company would like to draw the reader’s attention to. This authorization opens the door to the European market and requires, among others, these actions.

Basic Highlights about Becoming the EU Virtual Service Provider

The legal environment for acting as a crypto service provider in the EU is governed by the recently-adopted European Commission’s Regulation of Markets in Crypto-assets with the main aim of preventing the circulation of illegal proceeds in the crypto industry. 

The principal approach of the new regulation is that a virtual service provider has to obtain a single authorization that will be effective across the territory of the EU. This cryptolicensing novation simplifies the operation of crypto providers dramatically. At the same time, all of the virtual service providers have to comply with the AML rules and arrange effective cooperation with the banking institutions if fiat currencies are involved in the process (and they are in place in nearly all cases).

To get and keep a license active, it is expected to have clear internal policies, staff who meet the qualification requirements established by the law and ensure permanent monitoring of all the transactions carried out through the crypto business. Record-keeping and reporting standards should be also addressed appropriately. Apart from the cryptolicense itself, the project needs to have enough capital and IT resources to ensure steady operation.
