The United States-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase continues its aggressive expansion in Europe, with the latest regulatory approval coming from the land of tulips.
Coinbase officially announced on Thursday that it had received registration from De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), the central bank of the Netherlands. The regulatory approval allows Coinbase to offer its retail and institutional crypto products in the Netherlands.
According to the official DNB records, Coinbase is one of the major international exchanges approved by the Dutch central bank to operate cryptocurrency services alongside smaller local crypto firms. Coinbase Europe Limited and Coinbase Custody International are listed on DNB’s public register as crypto service providers.
The Dutch regulator is supervising Coinbase Europe and Coinbase Custody in compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act and the Sanctions Act.
“The crypto services of Coinbase are not subject to prudential supervision by DNB,” Coinbase said in the announcement. Financial and operational risks related
