Singapore Cryptocurrency License

Singapore is a parlimentary republic and major financial hub in Southeast Asia. It has a highly developed free market economy and is known worldwide for its business-friendly climate. For such reason, businesses in regulated industries have long flocked to Singapore, paritcularly in the financial, cryptocurrency and payments fields.

As a major onshore financial services center, Singapore is widely respected and recognized. The nation boasts a low tax regime on both domestic and offshore profits and a reasoned approach to regulatory fees. As a global hub for financial transactions with an exceedinly stable government, a regulatory license issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore carries global cache.

Singapore is an ideal jurisdiction for obtaining a digital asset license. The Monetary Authority of Singapore is charged with supervision and enforcement of its Class F Payment Institution License and has been very successful in attracting both high-profile cryptocurrency exchanges and Initial Coin Offerings. As a result, the jurisdiction is held in high regard by blockchain professionals across the globe.
