Crypto.Com Gets VARA Licence to operate in Dubai

Crypto.com, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange trusted by more than 80 million customers worldwide and the industry leader in regulatory compliance, security and privacy, on Tuesday announced that its Dubai entity, CRO DAX Middle East FZE, has received full operational approval from Dubai’s Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) and is launching the Crypto.com Exchange for institutional investors as its first operational milestone.

This operational approval follows Crypto.com’s fulfilment of the pre-operational conditions stipulated in the Virtual Asset Service Provider Licence granted to CRO DAX Middle East FZE in November last year, and marks a first for a global crypto operator to be operational with fiat in the UAE.

Available to institutional clients and qualified retail investors, the Crypto.com Exchange, which has deep liquidity and a state-of-the-art matching engine, offers spot trading, staking brokerage and other OTC offerings around settlements for selected markets.
