While maintaining a balanced regulatory approach, the EU has produced many progressive ideas for innovating and disrupting the status quo of the global financial system,” said Jovan Gavrilovic, General Manager of Europe at OKCoin. “We are very pleased to bring Virtual Financial Assets, as defined in Malta, to the European market in a secure and reliable manner, enabling users in Europe to trade cryptocurrencies for euros easily and safely.”

All OKCoin users can participate in euro spot trading for leading digital assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, with more digital asset pairs being added soon.  OKcoin has opened euro-to-token trading and pursued a Virtual Finance Asset (VFA) license with the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) because OKCoin believes that regulations are necessary to help the market reach its potential.

As the second largest currency in the world, the euro becomes the latest addition to OKCoin’s fast-growing stable of fiat currencies and leading digital assets such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Decred, EOS, Litecoin, 0x, Stellar, Tron, XRP, Zcash, and others.
