A cryptocurrency casino in Curacao does not need to be licensed any differently than any other online casino, but you must adhere to the regulators cryptocurrency guidelines. It is also worth noting that Curacao licensed casinos are not allowed to act as an exchange or a financial services authority, and they are not allowed to change a virtual currency such as Bitcoin into fiat currency. You can, however, use a third-party payment services provider to carry out this procedure for you while still being in line with Curacao law.
