Luno Granted South African Crypto Licence

Luno, a prominent player in the cryptocurrency sphere, has achieved a significant milestone by securing its Financial Services Provider licence under the Financial Advisory Intermediary Services Act (FAIS Act) in South Africa. The licence, awarded by the Financial Services Conduct Authority (FSCA), marks a pivotal moment for the company and the broader crypto industry within the country.

Regulation stands as a cornerstone in the cryptocurrency landscape, serving the interests of both consumers and the industry at large. With a substantial number of crypto users in South Africa, ensuring consumer protection becomes paramount. Licensing not only elevates operational standards but also establishes entry barriers for operators, thus enhancing consumer safeguards.

South Africa emerges as a frontrunner in its engagement with regulatory frameworks within the crypto sector, both on the continental and international fronts. Balancing regulation with innovation presents a nuanced challenge, one that regulators, industry participants, and stakeholders are collaboratively addressing to nurture a robust and sustainable crypto ecosystem.

In light of this development, Luno reassures its clients that their investments remain secure within the platform. The company has consistently adhered to regulatory requirements, underscoring its commitment to compliance even prior to legal mandates. Consequently, clients can expect the same level of service from Luno, with minor adjustments such as updates to risk warnings in communications.
