Crypto license in Denmark

February 28, 2024

Crypto-business in Denmark enjoys a favorably-developed environment as there’re plenty of cryptocurrency exchanges and there aren’t restrictions on exchange and vending of virtual funds. Nevertheless, national legislative basis doesn’t provide specific rules to control this market-niche. Danish authorities allow usage of Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies as payment means, assets or goods, although crypto-currencies aren’t not recognized as legal tender and aren’t covered by specialized legislative norms. Regulation of crypto-currencies is based on specifics of each deal and role of cryptocurrency in it.

Regulation of crypto-market in Denmark

There aren’t specifically-developed laws regulating VFA-market in Denmark. Crypto-currency deals may be covered by country’s financial laws based on their nature: whether it’s a payment form, investmenting tool, or financial service.

Main supervisory authorities in Denmark are:

  • FSA Financial Conducting Body;
  • national banking establishment;
  • Tax Administration;
  • tax advisory body.

Generally, supervision of financial market-space, including crypto-market, is covered by national and EU-directives.

Not far ago, amendments to Danish Illegal Monetary Means Circulation Act came into force. It defines crypto-currency as digital representation of value not being issued or guaranteed by central banking establishment or other governmental agency, not being tied to a legally established currency, and not having  legal status of a currency, but being accepted by capital-holders and legal entities as a medium of exchange and being capable of being transferred, stored and sold electronically.

When it comes to regulating ICOs in Denmark, country’s financial laws are heavily influenced by EU-directives. Issue of securities and deals in them locally are regulated by prospectus rules, EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, capital markets law and market-space abuse regulation. Crypto-currencies in this case aren’t recognized as financial tools and are rather considered as negotiable securities not covered by securities legislative norms.

Nowadays, in Denmark there aren’t clear guidelines regarding ICOs and definition of when a crypto-currency is considered financial tool and is covered by local legislative standards.

In area of monetary means storage and transfer services, Denmark sets laws on financial-business and payment services, which require specific permit for organizations carrying out transactions with deposits and loans. Nevertheless, crypto-companies don’t meet these points, and Danish law doesn’t consider crypto-currency purchase and vend deals as placing a deposit, without regulating them.

The same applies to transfers. Since virtual funds aren’t recognized as standard currency, its transactions aren’t considered remittances.

Activities of VFA-exchanges and exchangers aren’t regulated by specifically-developed norms in Denmark. In order for them to fall under Danish law, it’s mandatory to prove that crypto-currency is financial tool. In this case, vending on stock exchange will qualify as investing activities.

As for crypto-mining, it isn’t regulated at all. Even if virtual assets are recognized as a financial tool, miners will be considered as suppliers of IT-resources for a specific crypto-transaction.

Sanctions apply only if virtual currencies qualify as a financial tool. In this case, violation of law when making deals might result in a fine or imprisonment for up to 4-months-period. Nevertheless, given that virtual currency transactions aren’t covered by financial regulation in Denmark, risk of prosecution is extremely low.
