The government has made great strides in improving Antigua’s offshore company and banking environment through the introduction of new foreign residency, trust, partnership legislation.

For many years, international commercial banking has taken place on Antigua. However, it was not until 1983 that offshore banks began operating in this country and since then their numbers have increased rapidly as well. Antigua’s economy is one of the strongest in this region. The country has an largely on tourism and offshore financial services, which make up for about two thirds or more its overall gross domestic product (GDP).

Antigua is an ideal location for a cryptocurrency-based business. Antigua offers a Digital Asset Business license which allows the holder to operate an international cryptocurrency exchange or cryptocurrency-based payment service, among other options. The licensure is recognized world-wide and many cryptocurrency exchanges are licensed in Antigua. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished in a relatively short period of time.
