Open-a-Cryptocurrency-Company-in-Ireland.jpgCryptocurrency in Ireland refers to a type of payment that is available only for online transactions and it is known as type of virtual money which has not been regulated by the central bank of the country. Ireland accepts several types of cryptocurrencies and investors who want to start the procedure of Irish company formation must also know that the country has its own cryptocurrency – the Irishcoin, which is generally used for tourism related payments. Although the field increased in popularity in the last years, at the moment, there are several companies which accept bitcoin transactions and an important aspect in this sense is that in Dublin, persons can use a bitcoin ATM, which was opened in 2014. Our team of company formation representatives in Ireland can provide in-depth assistance on the registration of a cryptocurrency business
