Important Licensing for Safe Crypto Trading

The crypto environment is still far from being safe. Numerous hacks, attacks, or exploits make it still one of the more dangerous places on the Internet since it is very hard to keep your investments or even your identity safe. This has been proven in the past by events such as the Mt.Gox hack, QuadrigaCX vanishing, Ledgers Data leak, or CoinCheck hack. To show that the security of cryptocurrency space is still far from ideal, one does not have to go too much into the past, since only this year, more than 20 exchanges already disappeared, got hacked, or closed their gates for their customers.

Due to this, it is ever more important for the clients to know whether they can trust cryptocurrency exchanges for trading purposes. And one way, how these institutions and platforms can persuade their clients that they are safe, is by obtaining appropriate licenses, which is what Bingbon has done.

Several Different Licenses

Ever since Bingbon began offering crypto services, it has been taking security, safe trading, and legal compliance pretty seriously. Offering any type of financial services can be very tricky, with loads of regulations in order to operate. Typically, this is not usually a problem for exchanges that are willing to do their due diligence and prepare their platform to protect the interests of their users through obtaining different types of licenses.

MSB License

Money Services Business (MSB License) is very unique in the crypto space. This type of license is issued by FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network) in the United States and is one of the highest forms of licensing any cryptocurrency exchange can receive. As with other licenses, MSB is concerned mainly with the safety and supervision of any business or company that is concerned with money services.

Even though its importance for any business or platform that offers money services is pretty high, only a few cryptocurrency exchanges were able to obtain it. Bingbon is amongst such exchanges as Bittrex, Binance, or Huobi, who were able to receive this license.

DCE AUSTRAC License

Another important license that was given to Bingbon is the DCE AUSTRAC License. This license, as many others, makes sure that the capital or finances on the platforms and exchanges are not used for money laundering, tax evasion or funding of terrorism. Back in 2018, the Australian government  passed AML legislation requiring that all exchanges operating within this continent must have this form of license.

Thanks to the new regulations and laws, AUSTRAC has the right to be involved in the supervision of the trading of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. Therefore, for a cryptocurrency exchange that wants to operate in this area, which Bingbon wants, it is essential to hold this license.

MTR License

The MTR License, which was obtained from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communication of Estonia serves as a license for both digital currency and digital wallet. Estonia has been one of the cryptocurrency superpowers for many years. This license is not taken lightly in the cryptocurrency community and therefore does not only provide necessary regulatory framework for the exchange, but also can lead to a boost in confidence for the users of Bingbon.

For anyone, who is willing to check the trustworthiness of the license, here are all the necessary information and links, where they can do so:

FINTRAC MSB

Another type of license that Bingbon has successfully obtained is a FINTRAC MSB,  a Canadian license issued by FINTRAC, Canada’s financial intelligence unit. The role of this institution is to help detect and prevent any possible money laundering or financing of terrorist activities, which is in many cases done through cryptocurrencies. A license of this type reassures users that the cryptocurrency exchange does everything in its power to prevent illicit activities and undertaking.

What Licenses Mean for Cryptocurrency Exchange Such as Bingbon

As portrayed in this article, licenses serve several purposes for Bingbon. Some of them allow the cryptocurrency exchange to operate in the specific region, others make sure that the funds on the platform are not used in connection to terrorism or illicit activities.

For the most part however, these licenses provide protection for customers and can lead to increase in the confidence in the exchange, which is a key in the cryptocurrency space.
