New updates and improvements to MoonPay.

Registered provider? Aye! Compliant with Travel Rule? Aye!  🇬🇧

Registered provider? Aye! Compliant with Travel Rule? Aye! 🇬🇧

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey towards regulatory compliance. MoonPay is now officially operating as a Registered Cryptoasset Provider in the United Kingdom. This achievement represents a crucial step in our commitment to providing a safe and reliable platform for our UK customers.

What does this mean for you? As part of our compliance efforts, we've introduced a new onboarding flow and requirements for all UK residents. This includes a localized questionnaire, updated Terms & Conditions, and new transaction limits.

Additionally, we are now screening UK customer wallets to determine if they are custodial or non-custodial at the order creation step, in strict accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) guidance. These changes are essential to comply with the Crypto Travel Rule.

For context, this is a mandate requiring Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) and financial institutions involved in virtual asset transfers to collect and share personal data of transaction originators and beneficiaries. The goal is to combat money laundering and reinforce the integrity of virtual asset transactions.

These milestones are a testament to our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of security and regulatory compliance while providing you with a seamless crypto experience. You can learn more about it in our Newsroom post.
