The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) has granted FTX Europe permission to operate as a Cyprus investment firm (CIF), allowing it to possess the local company it previously purchased.
The Cyprus Investment Firm License allowed FTX EU to service the whole European Economic Area, according to the statement. FTX was expected to offer a full range of exchange services as the first cryptocurrency exchange in the world with a full MiFID II license, held to substantially higher criteria than regional registrations as Crypto Asset Service Providers.
Sam Bankman-Fried said:
“Securing this license in the European Union is an important step in achieving our goal of becoming one of the most regulated exchanges in the world. We are continuing to work with CySEC and regulators across the globe to be the leader in the digital asset industry when it comes to meeting the financial standards that are expected of traditional financial institutions.”
