Crypto.com has achieved a significant milestone by obtaining a Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) registration with the Bank of Spain. This registration enables Crypto.com to offer its comprehensive suite of products and services to users in Spain, positioning the country as an early adopter and a favorable regulatory environment for crypto-related activities within the European Union.
The Bank of Spain, responsible for granting licenses for crypto trading and overseeing digital tokens, ensures the protection of users and adherence to regulatory requirements. To obtain the license, Crypto.com underwent a thorough compliance review, including measures to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing and a comprehensive risk analysis.
A Growing Global Presence
This achievement comes after Crypto.com’s decision to close its institutional exchange service for US customers due to limited demand. However, the company remains resilient and continues to make strides globally. In addition to the Bank of Spain registration, Crypto.com recently secured a license for digital payment token services in Singapore, further expanding its market presence.
Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com, expressed enthusiasm for working with the Bank of Spain to provide users with a secure and comprehensive crypto experience, highlighting Crypto.com’s responsible approach to advancing blockchain technology.
The Bank of Spain registration adds to Crypto.com’s growing global regulatory approvals, including Major Payment Institution licenses in Singapore, Digital Asset Service Provider registration in France, and approval as a crypto asset business from the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
These regulatory achievements underscore Crypto.com’s dedication to meeting regulatory standards across different jurisdictions and ensuring a safe and compliant platform for its users.
By securing these licenses and registrations worldwide, Crypto.com demonstrates its commitment to fostering the adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology while prioritizing user safety and regulatory compliance.
As the company continues to expand its reach and gain regulatory approval, it aims to provide users with a seamless and secure crypto experience, reinforcing its position as a trusted and compliant platform in the evolving cryptocurrency landscape.
