Cryptocurrency license in Croatia


The Croatian government has recently legalized cryptocurrency activity in the country. Exchanges and platforms where cryptocurrency can be traded have been opened. Cryptomats appeared to exchange ICOs for real money. Companies and individuals were able to pay with cryptocurrency for goods, if the seller agrees to accept it. 

Also, Croatia began issuing a license to work with cryptocurrency, which opens up a lot of prospects. Having received a license, a legal entity can work in all markets in Europe, both small and large companies.


The license in Croatia covers two types of activities:

  • crypto exchange (fiat to cryptocurrency exchange services, cryptocurrencies to fiat, and cryptocurrencies to cryptocurrencies);
  • custody service provider (custody services - storage of clients' funds in cryptoassets).

Advantages of the jurisdiction:

  • Small authorized capital - 20,000 HRK (about 2,700 EUR).
  • Remote procedure of getting license.
  • No requirements for audit.
  • No limits for turnover in license.
  • Advantageous tax rates - only 10% for earning less than 1 million EUR.
