The Dutch Bank (DNB), the body accountable for controlling money related exercises in the Netherlands, will be obliged to conform to the orders of the Dutch government. Notwithstanding, they won't issue licenses for crypto organizations. Rather, paid enrollment will be obligatory and cost up to €34,000 every year. 

Setting up explicit hazard profiles with the new structure

On the off chance that you are dynamic without being dependent upon the transitional game plan, this may affect the evaluation of your (ensuing) enrollment application. You will likewise be in infringement and DNB can make requirement move."
