As we look back on the past couple of months since our listings on and MEXC, we are pleased to revisit the significant milestone achieved by Serenity Shield – the acquisition of a VASP (Virtual Asset Service Provider) license within the European Union. This reflective piece aims to underscore the enduring impact of this accomplishment, positioning us among a select group of only 300 companies currently holding a VASP license in the EU.

Beyond the initial buzz of our market launch, this achievement has become a pivotal element of our narrative, signifying our unwavering commitment to the highest regulatory compliance standards. It is a testament to our dedication to setting a benchmark in the blockchain industry for trust and security.

In taking this moment to reflect, we recognize that this VASP license is not just a legal formality but a symbol of our resilience and foresight in navigating the dynamic regulatory landscape. Armed with this recognition, we are poised to embark on a new chapter, unlocking possibilities for introducing innovative products and services that will redefine our trajectory.

What is a VASP License? 

Until recently, the dynamism and complexity of the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency have ensured that regulations have had to keep up. Governments need to catch up in this regard. That state of play has changed quickly, and we responded accordingly.

Shortly, regulatory compliance will play a growing and pivotal role in ensuring the security and legitimacy of operations for all digital solutions. A Virtual Asset Service Provider, or VASP, license is at the heart of this regulatory landscape. This certification serves as an official indication of adherence to stringent international regulatory standards. 

A VASP license is not merely a formality. It represents adherence to a comprehensive framework encompassing rigorous anti-money laundering (AML) protocols, know-your-customer (KYC) procedures, and other measures to prevent illicit financial activities. For a blockchain company, obtaining this license signifies a commitment to operating within the established legal parameters, ensuring the highest levels of transparency and accountability.

The journey to acquiring a VASP license involves meticulously aligning business practices with international financial security and consumer protection standards. It requires a deep understanding of the technological and legal aspects of blockchain operations. Securing this license demonstrates our dedication to legal compliance and commitment to fostering trust among users, investors, and regulatory bodies.

The Benefits of a VASP License 

Obtaining a VASP license brings many benefits that can prove crucial for any company operating in the blockchain space. Firstly, it ensures regulatory compliance, essential in the constantly evolving legal and regulatory landscape. This compliance protects the company from potential legal risks. It also reinforces a company's legitimacy in the eyes of both authorities and the public. 

Moreover, a VASP license significantly enhances a company's credibility. This industry has already shown that trust is a scarce commodity. Recognizing a licensed Virtual Asset Service Provider instills confidence among users and investors. It signals that the company is serious about its business and the security and well-being of its customers. 

Additionally, this certification opens doors to new markets and jurisdictions, expanding the company's operational scope. One way it can enable this is through facilitating smoother interactions with banks and financial institutions. Financial institutions often hesitate to engage with unregulated entities in the blockchain sector. The VASP license means that we are, in fact, bona fide.
