Obtaining a crypto license in Lithuania

We offer to obtain a crypto license in Lithuania within 30 days, the successful result is guaranteed!

Lithuania is a convenient jurisdiction for obtaining a crypto license that will be valid on the territory of Europe, and is also suitable for the installation and further operation of crypto projects and fintech businesses, in which a favorable environment is most productively combined with a simple and transparent legislative framework. The main advantages when choosing a crypto license in Lithuania include the relative simplicity of the licensing procedure for this activity, as well as a rather short time and moderate cost of obtaining authorization to work with cryptocurrency assets.

To obtain a license in the name of a company registered in Lithuania, it is necessary to prepare and submit the application according to the requirement of the regulator, develop and implement an AML policy, and appoint an MLRO or AML specialist to promptly exchange information and submit notifications of suspicious transactions to the regulator.

Due to the relatively light and flexible policy of the Lithuanian regulator FCIS, as well as a simple and understandable legislative framework and regulation in the crypto field, our clients can be 99.9% sure that they will successfully obtain a Lithuanian license.

For the introduction of a crypto business in Lithuania, it is proposed to obtain two types of crypto licenses:
Crypto Exchange License

This license entitles crypto companies to exchange cryptocurrencies for fiat and vice versa, as well as exchange one virtual asset for another.

Crypto Wallet License

Companies that obtain this license may create and manage customers’ crypto custodial wallets, as well as offer and provide the ability to store customers’ crypto assets in designated wallets.

We recommend that our customers immediately obtained both types of licenses, as this does not incur any additional costs, but significantly expands the range of potential opportunities.
