Bermuda Cryptocurrency License

Bermuda is a politically stable British Overseas Territory located in the North Atlantic Ocean. With a notably high GDP per capita, Bermuda has long been viewed positively by sophisticated financial service industry professionals. This has included the blockchain arena, with the country offering the Bermuda Cryptocurrency License. Leveraging its relationship with the United Kingdom and within the Commonwealth, and despite its relatively small size, Bermuda is a party to several significant international trade accords and tax treaties.

As a self-governing nation, Bermuda developed a robust offshore financial center. While not a recognized tax haven, Bermuda has nevertheless become the international hub for the reinsurance business. In addition, the country is a significant jurisdiction for offshore banking, publicly-traded companies, mutual funds and even cryptocurrency-based businesses.

Bermuda is an ideal location for a cryptocurrency-based business. Bermuda 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 Bermuda Cryptocurrency License is recognized world-wide and many cryptocurrency exchanges are licensed in Bermuda. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished in a relatively short period of time.

Advantages of a Bermuda Digital Asset Business License

Average daily trading in Bitcoin alone exceeds $20 billion. The streamlined and cost-effective process in obtaining a Bermuda Cryptocurrency License can place you in this lucrative market in as little as three months. As worldwide adoption of cryptocurrency increases, cryptocurrency exchanges are estimated to have taken in over $1 billion in profits last year alone. With increasingly complex cryptocurrency regulation in leading economic nations such as the United States and European Union, Bermuda offers a cost-effective, risk free alternative for starting a licensed cryptocurrency exchange or broker-dealer.
