Cryptocurrency License in Estonia

Cryptocurrency license in Estonia (cryptocurrency exchange license and crypto wallet license) and blockchain business in Estonia

Most businessmen decided on Estonia for their ICO or cryptocurrency business; on the top of it, they keep on doing their business there. The number of ICO and cryptocurrency projects launched in Estonia is on the rise. Since 2017 more than 700 companies got their cryptocurrency license in Estonia

ATM (automatic teller machine) for Bitcoin are installed, as well as a variety of cryptostartups, virtual exchanges and exchangers

Estonia is ranked first, among the top global countries, for the Internet availability and speed which makes it the comfortable place to do business related to crypto-currency and blockchain projects

6 reasons why crypto-business is to be done in estonia rather than anywhere else

1. Terms

It takes 1.5 months to register a company and get a license to operate the crypto-currency

2. Legislation

A license for the alternative payment instrument is issued in Estonia (referred to as the “virtual value” since 08.12.2017) to run exchange operations with crypto-currency
ICO experts prefer Estonia since the risk of token qualification as the valuable security is far lower than in the USA or Singapore

3. Cost

The license for the currency exchange in Estonia is 3 to 4 times lower than in the United Kingdom, Singapore, Switzerland or the USA

4. Regulatory bodies

Interaction with regulatory bodies and their accessibility is vital for blockchain projects.
Communication and interface with the Financial Inspectorate and the Money Laundering Data Bureau in Estonia is much easier than in the US or Singapore: the required legal information, assistance in solving various issues within their jurisdiction, possibility to communicate in English and Russian languages

5. E-residence

Estonia is open to any entrepreneur from all over the world and is recognized as one of the most developed countries in terms of digitalization and IT. A person who intends to do business in Estonia may apply for an e-residece card that allows access to all government services and simplifies communication with state authorities. This card prevents you from bureaucracy and saves a lot of your time

6. Tax policy

According to the OECD, the tax policy in Estonia is one of the most competitive tax policies in the world. There is no profit tax in Estonia. Bitcoins and altcoins are not subject to VAT. Yet, ICO projects are not taxed. That means that ICO attracted funds are not subject to profit tax until ICO dividends are distributed
