Requirements

A Board Member of the company can apply for a cryptocurrency license in Estonia. An application for a license can be submitted electronically with an e-Resident card when visiting a notary in Tallinn or by issuing a power of attorney to a representative of Company in Estonia OÜ so that we can apply for you.

Bank account

One of the biggest challenges for crypto enterprisers is opening a bank account. Opening an account with an Estonian bank is not possible because none of the Estonian banks works with high-risk businesses (Crypto, Gambling, Gaming, CBD, Adult etc.). Crypto businesses are under stringent supervision as quite often their owners tend to run fraud operations and break the law by, for example, sponsoring terrorism.
