Crypto.com has won regulatory approval from Italy’s Organismo Agenti e Mediatori (OAM), allowing the exchange to distribute its products and services to customers in that country.
“We are committed to building lasting growth in the region and will continue working with regulators to deliver a wide range of products and services to our valued customers,” said company co-founder and CEO Kris Marszalek in a press release Tuesday.
The leader in news and information on cryptocurrency, digital assets and the future of money, CoinDesk is an award-winning media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of editorial policies. In November 2023, CoinDesk was acquired by Bullish, a cryptocurrency exchange, which in turn is owned by Block.one, a firm with interests in a variety of blockchain and digital asset businesses and significant holdings of digital assets including bitcoin and EOS. CoinDesk operates as an independent subsidiary, and an editorial committee, chaired by a former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, is being formed to support journalistic integrity.
