WHY ESTONIA

Estonia is cost-effective

Not only is Estonia one of the few countries in the world to have a fully regulated crypto environment but it’s the least resource demanding among all of them as well. Establishing and managing your cryptocurrency business here is cost-effective and quick compared to countries such as Malta, Singapore and Japan.

Estonia is a digital nation

Estonia also offers an innovative way for foreign entrepreneurs to do business here. It’s called the e-Residency program. E-Residency allows entrepreneurs to incorporate and run a company in Estonia from anywhere in the world. With e-Residency you have access to Estonia’s government e-services which enable you to carry out everyday business tasks 100% digitally and remotely.

Estonia has a great business environment

Hassle-free infrastructure and full transparency are what make the business environment in Estonia attractive for enterprises. Estonia is not a tax haven, however, it’s possible to run a profitable business in Estonia completely tax-free. Retained and reinvested profits are not subject to taxation meaning Estonia is a fantastic place for growing and scaling your business.
