UK-based virtual asset service provider B2C2 has decided to expand its operations into Luxembourg in the context of a developing digital asset market.


B2C2 has been officially registered as the 12th virtual asset service provider (VASP) on the public register of the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) in Luxembourg. This registration marks a step forward in B2C2's expansion efforts, as the company has previously catered to a diverse clientele across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and EMEA regions. With this regulatory approval, B2C2 aims to capitalise on the opportunities presented by Luxembourg's digital asset market. 

The VASP registration enables B2C2 to offer over-the-counter (OTC) spot crypto services to institutional clients and supports a continous collaboration within the digital asset ecosystem. Additionally, it opens doors for partnerships with local VASPs, traditional financial institutions, and other market participants.
