Estonia Cryptocurrency License

Estonia offers one of the most technologically advanced governments in the world, having digitized nearly every facet of government function. While not recognized as a financial center, the European Union member continues to attract a wealth of international companies to its technology hub. Estonia offers a reasonable corporate tax structure of 20% on distributed profits only. Recently, the country has become most known for the Estonia Cryptocurrency License.

As the ease of corporate formation and banking continue to be a staple of the Estonian government, it has not stood idly by. Estonia has been a forerunner in the distributed ledger technology – i.e., blockchain, and cryptocurrency space. Specifically, Estonia’s Ministry of Economic Affairs has promulgated regulations specifically aimed at attracting cryptocurrency-related businesses.

Estonia is one of the preeminent jurisdictions for obtaining a cryptocurrency license. The Estonia Cryptocurrency License provides the holder with the ability to operate a cryptocurrency exchange, manage hosted cryptocurrency wallets, among other activities. The ease of obtaining a license and flexibility the license affords within the European Union and elsewhere makes Estonia a perfect jurisdiction for blockchain-related operations.

Advantages of an Estonia Cryptocurrency License

Average daily trading in Bitcoin alone exceeds $20 billion. The streamlined and cost-effective process in obtaining an Estonia 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, Estonia offers a cost-effective, risk free alternative for starting a licensed cryptocurrency exchange or broker-dealer.
