Regulations for custodian wallets

As a custodian wallet service, must I hold a payment service provider licence?


  • If a custodian wallet service provides any of the activities currently regulated under DPT service provider, it will need to be licensed.

    According to MAS (Consultation – Response Paper)

    If a wallet is able to hold both moneys and DPTs, and the payment service provider carries on a business of providing DPT services, account issuance services and e-money issuance services, the payment service provider will need to be licensed to provide any of those services.
