In Washington State, the law mandates that any business dealing with virtual currency must obtain a Virtual Currency License. This license permits engagement in activities such as money transmission and buying and selling virtual assets, thereby providing legal and secure operations. However, obtaining this license necessitates fulfilling several prerequisites.
A state-specific Money Transmitter Application forms the crux of the application process. Alongside this, applicants need to meet a Net Worth requirement and provide a Statement of Net Worth. The submission of a Company’s Good Standing Certificate is also imperative. Further, background checks and fingerprints for control persons form part of the process. To ensure compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations, applicants need to have an AML Compliance Program in place, complete with internal policies and procedures. Personal financial statements for control persons, licensing fees, and obtaining a surety bond also contribute to the application process.
