Ripple obtains full licence to operate in Singapore


Cryptocurrency company Ripple said on Wednesday 4th October 2023 that it has obtained a full licence to operate in Singapore, its Asia-Pacific headquarters since 2017.

‘We have hired exceptional talent and local leadership, doubling headcount over the past year and plan to continue growing our presence in a progressive jurisdiction like Singapore,‘ CEO Brad Garlinghouse said in a statement.

It comes as Ripple continues to fight with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over a lawsuit.

The new development comes less than four months after the Monetary Authority of Singapore granted an ‘initial in-principle’ approval in June 2023. With the full licence, Ripple will continue to provide regulated crypto payment services in Singapore.

Over 90% of Ripple’s business is outside of the U.S., and Singapore – and to a larger degree Asia Pacific – is one of its fastest growing region.
