Coinbase first established a presence in Singapore in 2021, joining the MAS Fintech Regulatory Sandbox. The sandbox allowed Coinbase to pilot limited services while engaging with the regulator. The company is now graduating from the sandbox thanks to obtaining the full license.

Singapore has adopted progressive crypto regulations to support innovation while protecting consumers. Major firms such as Binance, and Crypto.com have also set up operations in the country due to its friendly regulatory environment.

The new license will allow Coinbase to serve the growing institutional and retail crypto market in Singapore. The country has quickly emerged as a global crypto hub thanks to smart policies aimed at balancing risks and benefits of digital assets.
