SINGAPORE, Nov. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Alchemy Pay, the leading fiat-crypto payment gateway, proudly announced the successful attainment of its Money Services License in the United States, specifically in the State of Iowa. Prior to this in September, it had just acquired a Money Transmitter License (MTL) in the state of Arkansas. The achievement of this license for the second time underscores Alchemy Pay’s capabilities and represents a significant stride in its global market expansion efforts.
The Division of Banking, State of Iowa, is the regulatory authority responsible for issuing this license. The recently obtained license is now officially recorded in the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS). To verify its standing, individuals can conduct a search using either the company name “Alchemy Pay Inc.” or the NMLS ID “2449570” According to the regulations, any entity or individual engaged in currency exchange or money transmission business in Iowa is mandated to possess this license.
In recent months, the Alchemy Pay team has seen success in securing compliant licenses, a development that strengthens its position in both the U.S. and international markets. Alchemy Pay’s acquisition of these licenses places it alongside established players like Coinbase, Elon Musk’s X, and MoonPay. The continuous pursuit of global compliance licenses has been a strategic focus for Alchemy Pay, serving as a crucial foundation for fortifying its payment capabilities. Moreover, Alchemy Pay has already completed the application process for MTL licenses in additional U.S. states, with outcomes anticipated in the coming months.
The Money Transmitter License stands as a crucial credential for any enterprise engaged in payment operations within the United States. It plays a pivotal role in ensuring the security and reliability of the payment system, offering essential safeguards to both consumers and businesses involved in sending or receiving payments. The application process for this license demands a substantial investment of time and resources from qualified professionals, and only companies demonstrating competitive strength and credibility will be granted authorization.
