Features of the registration of a cryptocompany in El Salvador

December 6, 2021

El Salvador became the world’s first country to accept Bitcoin as its official currency in June 2021. International clients may now legally trade and earn from bitcoins, as well as do business, acquire products and services, invest in bitcoins, and trade and profit from them.

Pros of registering a cryptocurrency firm in El Salvador

  1. An economy that is rapidly growing. In recent years, El Salvador’s economy has demonstrated significant diversification.
  2. Low taxes.
  3. Economic democracy. Access to electronic transactions has been more democratic with the switch to digital money.
  4. By “innovating and pushing business limits,” cryptocurrency may provide consumers with a plethora of options.
  5. Direct collaboration with international investors is a possibility. Contributions from the developers of well-known payment systems and Bitcoin miners are among the prospective investments that a company established in El Salvador might attract.

El Salvadorian authorities approved Bitcoin as a valid means of payment in September 2021. This is how El Salvador became the first country in the world to make Bitcoin legal for payment transactions. This implies that if businesses have the technology to accept Bitcoin, it may now be used to pay and repay debts. It’s worth noting that one of the effects of this law reform is that if creditors refuse to accept debt payments in Bitcoin, the debt will be cancelled.

As a result, it is also feasible to register a business that will operate with cryptocurrencies in this state. In El Salvador, obtaining a crypto license for crypto exchanges, cryptocurrency wallets, and crypto exchangers is common.

The process of obtaining a cryptocurrency license in El Salvador

Although legislation to govern cryptocurrencies is still in its early stages, properly registered corporations are actively executing operations involving virtual assets. It should be mentioned that forming a corporation in El Salvador is not easy; in particular, local regulation has its own quirks; yet, the popularity of cryptocurrencies and the number of transactions using them is growing.

For the time being, foreign investors who want to launch a cryptocurrency company must follow specific financial standards that apply to regulated businesses, most notably the Anti-Money Trafficking Law.

  • In order to register a business in El Salvador, you’ll need at least two partners, and if they’re businesses, you’ll need to present each of their memorandums of association.
  • It is necessary to supply the legal representative’s passport as well as the administrator’s powers in one person or the board of directors, if any. All papers needed to apply for a bitcoin license must be notarized, apostilled, or legalized at the nearest El Salvador consulate.
  • If you need to get a cryptocurrency license in a certain state, you should know that a firm with a local director and agent will have an easier time getting one. El Salvador became the world’s first country to accept Bitcoin as its official currency in June 2021. Multinational clients may now legally trade and benefit from bitcoins, as well as do business, acquire products and services, invest in bitcoins, and trade and profit from them.
