Cryptocurrency, Blockchain & Digital Assets

A pioneer in the Crypto space

Jersey early on established itself as a crypto-friendly jurisdiction when the islands regulator, the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC), approved the launch of the world’s first regulated Bitcoin investment fund, GABI Plc. Jersey was also one of the first jurisdictions to adopt a regulatory regime for virtual currencies. As a well-established international finance centre with its own forward-thinking regulator, autonomous and pro-business Government as well as access to world class talent and infrastructure – it’s no wonder Jersey is quickly making a name for itself in the Crypto industry.
