OWNR Granted MSB License to Sell Cryptocurrency in the USA

TALLINN, EE, June 15, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - OWNR, a multifunctional cryptocurrency wallet, has been granted an MSB (Money Services Business) license by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a division of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. This federal licence authorizes the holder to engage in currency transmission services and dealings in foreign exchange, including all virtual and crypto currencies.

The U.S. federal MSB Licence is a legal benchmark on the way to providing cryptocurrency exchange in the USA. OWNR Wallet OU is now applying for the corresponding licenses from each of the state regulators. Meanwhile, it is possible to exchange cryptocurrencies with OWNR in 97 countries, including those of the EU.

"Our efforts are focused not only on adding new coins and functionality, but on the compliance work for expanding our presence globally," says Grygory Sytenko, OWNR Wallet CEO. "I believe that at the moment, OWNR is one of the precious few cryptocurrency apps that covers most of a user's needs. Our goal is to build the most intuitive yet all-comprising app which would make cryptocurrency as available to anyone as traditional financial system."

OWNR Wallet is conceived as part of a multi-asset cryptocurrency ecosystem. The latter also comprises prepaid cryptocurrency debit cards, which will be managed from the app (launching soon), a blockchain explorer, and its own system of cryptocurrency exchange. Once the basic functionality is implemented, the team will move on to the special features which may be of interest to developers, enterprise and traders.
