Scope of Services: What a Crypto Exchange License in Lithuania Can Do?

Comprehending the Wide-ranging Capabilities of Virtual Asset Service Providers

Crypto to Fiat, Fiat to Crypto

Possessing a cryptocurrency license in Lithuania endows one with the capacity to mediate the exchange between cryptocurrencies and traditional, fiat currencies reciprocally. As a result, clients are accorded the advantage of trading utility tokens ( Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, etc) and currencies such as the USD, Euro, and others.

Crypto to Crypto

Firms acknowledged as VASPs are accorded the right to offer exchange services for a multitude of digital assets, including but not limited to Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, as well as other utility tokens and coins.

Custodial Service

Holding a VASP (Virtual Asset Service Provider) license allows the holder to safeguard clients' cryptocurrencies through custodial wallets. This essentially means that the service provider can create a digital wallet for a client, and, while doing so, maintains control over the wallet's private keys.

Staking as Service

VASPs are allowed to use staking to create passive cryptocurrency income. This process, similar to making a bank deposit, involves locking cryptocurrencies into a network to support its operations. In return, stakers are rewarded, usually with more coins, thus providing a way to earn while holding cryptocurrencies.


A Lithuanian crypto exchange license allows for conducting ICOs, IEOs, and IDOs, focusing on launching utility tokens only.

Mint & Trade NFTs

A Lithuanian-registered VASP has the ability to establish a platform for NFT (Non-Fungible Token) trading, or even partake in NFT creation. This contributes to the formation of a unique digital asset marketplace.
