Obtaining the Bitlicense

We are excited to announce that we have obtained the Bitlicense from the New York Department of Financial Services. The Bitlicense, which authorizes our continuing virtual currency business operations in the state of New York, is an important validation of our highest priority: to operate the most trusted and secure digital asset exchange in the world.

We believe the long-term success of digital currency technologies requires a productive partnership between industry and government. As we expand our business in New York and beyond, we will continue to make the operational investments needed to bring new digital assets and advanced trading features to GDAX.
