CEX.IO Earns Money Transmitter License in the U.S. District of Columbia

, January 29, 2024

Who said nothing ever gets done in Washington? We’re thrilled to announce that CEX.IO has been approved for a Money Transmitter License in the U.S. District of Columbia. Looming large in the minds of Americans with flags, freedom, and full regalia, on a good day, D.C. is the beating heart of the people’s hopes and dreams. 

While politics can be off-putting, residents can now opt to shed their partisan cloaks and seize emerging opportunities outside the arena. Devoid of mudslinging, grandstanding, and, for the most part, pontificating, the crypto ecosystem speaks in a language of innovation, gains, and losses. 

The new license joins CEX.IO’s 30+ accreditations across the United States, and expands best-in-class crypto access for D.C. residents. CEX.IO’s award-winning crypto products and services offer intuitive on-ramps for curious participants to explore the digital economy alongside a trusted guide. For over a decade, CEX.IO’s reputation for reaching across the aisle, and building bridges between traditional finance and decentralized networks, has defined its soaring reputation. By encouraging a path of regulation and thorough due diligence, CEX.IO’s commitment to providing a user-centric experience has earned the support of over six million participants world wide. And for those who’ve seen their fair share of administrations, the platform’s advanced features can help call the next session of your crypto journey into order.

Like the many issues that can lead a person to run for office, crypto enthusiasts are also looking to solve problems. Whether cutting remittance red tape, experimenting with peer-to-peer transactions, or acquiring goods and services, all can function as avenues toward change. As great (and less great) minds clash over the issues of the day, residents of the U.S. capital can now escape to the digital economy when the discussion drags on. Afterall, politics, like baseball, shares the courtesy of publishing the results once the game is over.

A few provisions before we vote to adjourn: Buy, Sell, Swap, and Store features are available through a web browser, and on-the-go via the CEX.IO App. While we’re still working to get Staking and Savings Services through some gridlock, we hope the wide array of possible payment methods proves attractive. For the latest ecosystem updates, follow the company’s official channels, and stay tuned for more exciting announcements, this election season and beyond.
