PR: CoinLoan Lending Platform Granted Full License

CoinLoan Lending Platform

Tallinn, Estonia – CoinLoan, the Estonia-based blockchain startup, took the Fintech world by storm today, when they announced that they have been granted a full Economic Activities License by the Estonian Government.

With CoinLoan receiving a license, it means that they have now cleared all regulatory hurdles to enable them to process transactions in crypto and fiat currencies. Because CoinLoan lets members leverage crypto assets like Bitcoin as collateral for loans in conventional currencies, obtaining a financial license prior to launch was essential. CoinLoan can now legally let borrowers access capital on demand using cryptocurrency as leverage for a loan, while retaining crypto-assets as security and having a range of options for tax payments.

Estonian law has legalized the exchange of cryptocurrencies for traditional (fiat) currencies, meaning CoinLoan is perfectly positioned to capitalize on the demand for effortless crypto-to-fiat conversion. CoinLoan’s new license means they now have access to the entire EU market.

Presently, investing in ICOs can be fraught with danger, as many are likely to fail due to overambitious claims, but CoinLoan’s financial license demonstrates that they are building a viable, long-term business. “Unlike most ICO start-ups, we don’t plan on raising and spending funds only to discover we’re not successful.” said Max Sapelov, CoinLoan’s co-founder. “Our project has been running for over a year, and complying with regulations means that we can offer a fully operational product – not just a concept – when we go to market in early 2018″.

CoinLoan went through a series of rigorous checks for legality, financial stability, and security to obtain the license, showing that they are a viable, legitimate business. CoinLoan has made great strides in demonstrating that they’re a worthy investment by adding a number of seasoned blockchain specialists to their advisory team; and then reconfiguring their token offering to make it even more compelling. After successfully raising over $ 800,000 during their pre-ICO fundraising round, they expect to raise the remaining amount via its ICO, which is presently underway.
