VASP (Virtual Asset Service Providers) - a license to provide services related to virtual assets. Lithuania was one of the first in the EU to introduce a comprehensive regulatory framework for cryptocurrency companies. The Anti-Money Laundering Act (AML) and the Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) Act create clear rules for the registration, licensing and operation of crypto companies. This provides legal certainty and protection for businesses and investors.

Lithuania offers a simplified licensing process for cryptocurrency companies. Companies can apply for a VASP license to the Lithuanian Financial Market Supervisory Service (FMS) and receive approval within 3 months. The licensing requirements and process are transparent and efficient compared to other jurisdictions.
