Crypto Asset Licensing

Malta – acclaimed as Blockchain Island – offers the most holistic regulatory framework for crypto asset issues and service providers. Malta’s regulatory regime allows for a variety of Token Generation Events including utility tokens and STOs. It also allows for the licensing of crypto exchanges, custodians and funds.

The Virtual Financial Assets Act made Malta a global hub in the licensing of crypto assets and services. Today, the island hosts global heavyweights and has provided regulatory clarity to a fast-growing and revolutionary industry.
