In the modern world, cryptocurrencies have gained significant popularity and have become an important element of the financial system. In order to ensure the correct functioning of the cryptocurrency sector, it is necessary to establish clear rules and regulations.
Obtaining a crypto license is an important step for companies seeking to operate in this field. Gibraltar is one of the leading countries that provides crypto licenses and creates a favorable environment for companies working with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.
The process of obtaining a crypto license in Gibraltar includes several stages and requires the fulfillment of certain conditions.
The first step is to apply for a license from the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC).
The application must be accompanied by the following documents:
- Business plan: The company must prepare a detailed business plan that includes strategy, business model, financial projections, and risk management plans.
- Company Details: Complete information about the company, including ownership structure, business description, and management experience.
- Policies and Procedures: Details of the company’s policies and procedures regarding compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) requirements must be provided.
- Financial statements: The company must provide financial statements for the previous year, including a balance sheet, a profit and loss statement, and a cash flow statement.
- Risk management systems: The company must have appropriate systems and controls to identify, assess and manage risks associated with its activities.
After applying and meeting the requirements of the GFSC, a company can receive a license offer. The review process can take a long time as the GFSC conducts a thorough review of all aspects of the company’s operations.
Some additional requirements and conditions that may be associated with obtaining a crypto license in Gibraltar include:
