What is

Cryptocurrency regulation in Estonia


Cryptocurrency businesses in Estonia must abide by the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act since 2020. They are subject to the same AML/CFT rules as financial institutions.

This law requires that Estonian VASPs must register to get a license from the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). Moreover, VASPs must follow several rules such as appointing a compliance officer, adopting a risk-based approach, or conducting know-your-customer and customer due diligence processes.
