Reason for this visit

Cyprus has gradually become an active country in cryptocurrency trading. The regulatory framework for the cryptocurrency ecosystem in Cyprus is in line with the crypto legislation of the European Union, focusing mainly on consumer protection, anti-money laundering, and anti-terrorism financing.
