Dutch digital currency platform, Anycoin Direct announced on Friday that it has officially registered as a cryptocurrency exchange service with the Dutch Central Bank (DNB), under the new rules for the crypto industry brought by the regulator.
The exchange became the third Dutch cryptocurrency company to receive a license from the central bank. The other two companies are AMDAX and BLOX.
In the press release, Anycoin detailed that its process to obtain the license was ongoing for several months, and it was awarded to the company on Thursday. The license will ensure that the platform works within the global regulatory frameworks and is a ‘safe and regulated platform’ with all the recommended crime prevention measures.
“We hope this will welcome more traditional financial investors, family officers, and newcomers to the world of cryptocurrency,” Anycoin co-founder and CTO, Julian van der Wijst noted.
