In the last six months alone, the number of licensed digital asset companies has increased by 50%.

“The latest licensed company, Jewel Bank, will be issued a full banking and digital asset business license this week to provide essential banking services to digital asset companies, accelerating Fintech’s development in Bermuda. It can gain momentum and attract more companies to the pipeline. Tonight, Jewel and BDA will co-sponsor a dinner with leaders in the digital asset sector to further drive business and work to Bermuda.
“Bermuda has established a reputation for being respected for its strong and well-defined regulations, the consensus shares our leadership story, highlights the growing digital asset industry and makes Bermuda a high-quality fintech company. It’s an opportunity to advertise why it’s the jurisdiction of choice. We’re thrilled with the progress we’ve made and hearing about employment growth underpins the government’s strategy. “
