Crypto.com, the renowned cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Singapore, has reported a significant development that underscores its commitment to regulatory compliance. On June 1, the platform declared that it had secured a Major Payment Institution (MPI) license for digital payment token (DPT) services, courtesy of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). 

This milestone is a testament to the platform’s drive to meet and exceed regulatory expectations, bolstering trust among its burgeoning clientele.

From In-principle Approval to Full Authorization For Crypto.com

This recent success follows the in-principle approval from MAS that Crypto.com received in June 2022. Now armed with the MPI license, the exchange is fully empowered to roll out its DPT services to customers within the city-state.
