Revolut Gets CySEC Approval to Offer Crypto Services In Europe

Revolut Gets CySEC Approval to Offer Crypto Services In Europe

European digital bank Revolut has been granted authorization by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) to offer crypto services across the European Economic Area (EEA).

The EEA includes the 27 countries that are in the European Union, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Revolut, which is valued at $33 billion, became the first entity to receive approval as a crypto-asset service provider from the Cyprus regulator, the company said on Friday.

The authorization will enable Revolut to offer crypto services to its 17 million customers in the EEA out of a new crypto-asset hub in Cyprus. Revolut said its choice was down to the sophisticated regulatory regime of the island country, which has also attracted the likes of Crypto.com, eToro and BitPanda.

Crypto firms are attempting to establish regulated entities in EU countries to ensure that they will be able to offer services across the economic bloc, ahead of the EU's Markets in Crypto-Assets regulation, or MiCA.

MiCA is designed to provide great consumer protection and stamp out scams, money laundering and other financial crime in the crypto industry.

With 17 million customers already across the EEA, Revolut is looking to ensure it will be able to offer them crypto services once MiCA becomes law.

Revolut also confirmed that it will continue to serve UK customers from its UK-based entity. Its registration application with the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority remains unresolved, with the firm able to offer crypto services there via the FCA's Temporary Registration Regime.

The firm has about 20 million customers worldwide and now offers exposure to around 80 crypto assets, after it added 20 new ones at the start of this month, including APE, AVAX and SAND.
