Belgium officially mandates cryptocurrency 

marketplaces and wallet service providers to register.

The government in Belgium have made it mandatory for service providers of some cryptocurrency exchanges and wallet services to register with the nation's economic authorities. Designated organizations that lacked to agree to the proposed restrictions will risk charges, as well as other consequences, indulging the inability to conduct their particular operations.

From May 1, 2022, all crypto exchange companies founded and functioning in Belgium that intend to continue providing trading services among "digital currencies and fiat money" must enrol with the nation's economic regulators, the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA). The same would be true for firms that provide safekeeping wallet services, according to the government.
Crypto service providers in these 2 categories that were operating in Belgium previously to the stipulated time period must inform the FSMA of business operations before July 1, 2022, and file for licensing just before September 1 deadline, according to the regulator. They will be given "temporary authorization," which will enable the organisation to operate while the FSMA considers their licensing petitions.
Belgian or European enterprises are among those impacted. A basic capitalization is required of €50,000 ($53,000) is required for certification, according to a FAQ session on the ministry's official web portal. The FSMA also needs to know the names of the traders and those in charge of the social media handlers, who must possess adequate organisational skills.
According to the FSMA, trading service providers are organizations that conduct buy or sell operations with their very own money. This is when the supplier, like conventional currency conversion bureaus, serves as a counterparty to a transaction.
The new laws do not apply to companies that function as mediators between a customer and a third party. Manufacturers of automated teller machines (ATMs) for cryptocurrency t5o fiat money exchanges, on the other hand, will be deemed barter trade operators for the reasons of the new standards.
Correctional wallet services are also defined by the government as services for the safekeeping of individual data encryption on behalf of the public for the aim of maintaining, depositing, and exchanging virtual currency. Individuals who offer such benefits to clients will be considered custodial wallet provision of additional and will be required to be registered with the FSMA.
