Crypto.com Gains Licenses In South Korea And Dubai
The license from CIMA represents one of the many regulatory approvals the company has received over the past few years.
Crytpo.com announced recently that it has received the VASP and Electronic Financial Transaction Act approval in South Korea. This was possible through the acquisition of VASP company OK-BIT Co. Limited and payment service provider PnLink Co.Limited.
Last month, the crypto exchange received regulatory approval from the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). The approval enabled the firm to carry out digital service operations in the country, a tax haven for companies.
The company has also received a provisional license in Dubai, which allows it to offer virtual asset services in the region.
In June this year, Crytpo.com received in-principle approval from Singapore’s monetary authority as a major payment institution. The license gives Crytpo.com the authority to offer digital payment token services to clients in the country.
