The former Soviet republics Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania have turned themselves into some of the most tech-savvy, digitally focused governments in Europe. They address the market opportunity of the European digital single market.
Today, Estonia is regarded as one of the worldâ€™s most advanced digital nation. Anybody who wishes to start a business in Estonia can become an eResident and get a so-called e-residency to access all electronic services offered by the government. E-residency provides the possibility to establish a company online, manage it remotely and achieve location independence. The E-Residency program saves time you would otherwise have spent on bureaucracy, tax authorities, and incorporation. Although there are obvious benefits to incorporating your cryptocurrency business in Estonia, it is important to consider the legal and compliance obligations. Incorporating your business is a major decision which should be well planned and for which advice should be sought from professionals.
