We look forward to collaborating with the Bermuda Monetary Authority as we expand our presence in Bermuda, continue to deliver innovative products and services to our clients worldwide and remain the most trusted financial service provider in crypto.”

Meanwhile, the Hon. David Burt, JP, MP and Bermuda's Premier, commented: "I appreciate BlockFi's successful receipt of a Class F Digital Asset Business License, and I particularly appreciate its establishment of operations in Bermuda."
