Latest Developments in Bybit
Bybit, the popular cryptocurrency trading platform, has been granted a license to operate in Cyprus, just weeks after receiving an ‘in-principle’ approval from Kazakhstan’s regulatory body to operate in the country.
With its headquarters recently established in Dubai, Bybit has emerged as a leading player in the crypto trading world, offering spot and derivatives trading services to its users.
Despite facing regulatory challenges in some jurisdictions, it has managed to position itself as one of the top venues for crypto exchange. However, Bybit has also had to shutter operations in Canada due to strict crypto rules, while regulators in Spain and Japan have warned against its operations, calling the platform an illegal crypto exchange. Nonetheless, Bybit remains committed to gaining regulatory approval and expanding its services across the globe.
