Bitstamp, one of the longest-standing cryptocurrency exchanges, has recently been registered with the Financial Markets Authority in France. This move follows other rivals, such as Binance and Crypto.com, who have already secured the green light from the watchdog. Bitstamp has also obtained licenses in other European countries, such as Italy and Spain. The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) has added Bitstamp to the list of cryptocurrency platforms allowed to offer products and services to local users.
In addition to this, Bitstamp has partnered with the American professional esports organization, Immortals, to serve as its official cryptocurrency exchange and a founding partner. The three-year collaboration will explore non-fungible token (NFT) integrations and further enhance the Immortals fan experience with real, tangible benefits that connect the crypto and gaming worlds. Bobby Zagotta, CEO of Bitstamp USA, stated that this partnership is an extension of their mission to empower their customers by creating a more authentic experience between crypto and gaming.
The move to register with the Financial Markets Authority in France and the partnership with Immortals is a major step forward for Bitstamp, as it will allow them to expand their services to more countries and further explore the integration of digital assets within the gaming industry. This will create more opportunities for users to access a wider range of products and services, as well as benefit from the real, tangible benefits that connect the crypto and gaming worlds.
