Cake DeFi, the fastest-growing Singapore-based Decentralized Finance (DeFi) platform, is delighted to announce that it has received a cryptocurrency license from the Registrar of Legal Entities of Lithuania. It authorizes the platform to conduct services for exchanging cryptocurrency, and providing and administering cryptocurrency custodial wallets in Lithuania.
This will facilitate Cake’s cryptocurrency registration and authorisation in other European Economic Area (EEA) member states and for future conversion into an EU-wide cryptocurrency authorisation when the EU Markets in Crypto-assets (MiCA) Regulations become effective. Set to go into effect in 2024, the MiCA framework will grant passporting rights for crypto licenses that fulfill the terms of the framework.
Offering transparent and secure ways to interact with its platform is a core pillar of Cake’s corporate philosophy. As a licensed platform, it will be able to give customers extra peace of mind by providing a regulated environment. Cake DeFi is following the footsteps of other major cryptocurrency companies such as Binance that set up entities in Lithuania and were granted licenses in the country.
“The license from Lithuania is a milestone in our ongoing journey to become fully licensed and regulated in our key markets around the world”, Dr. Julian Hosp, Co-Founder and CEO of Cake DeFi, said in a statement. “I’m beyond proud of the hard work our team has put in to meet the stringent criteria of the financial regulatory bodies in Lithuania and to protect our users with strong anti-money laundering policies.”
In its home country of Singapore, Cake holds an exemption under the Payment Services (Exemption for Specified Period) Regulations 2019 granted by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”) which allows it to continue operating in and from Singapore while the MAS processes its license application to conduct digital payment token services.
Since its launch in 2019, Cake DeFi has been committed to unlocking new economic value, enhancing financial inclusion, and enabling more seamless and efficient financial services. It has paid out a staggering $317 million in rewards to its customers as of Q1, 2022.
Cake DeFi achieved these milestones by creating a safe and secure one-stop platform for consumers to easily access DeFi services such as staking, lending, borrowing, and liquidity mining. It is planning to get listed on a public stock exchange in the near future to accelerate growth and R&D.
