So the credit card bill payments are back, what happen?

The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) reviewed our business model for 32 days and their compliance officer told us today:

” Based on the information you provided, namely that your business will facilitate the conversion of bitcoin to fiat currency to pay your clients’ credit card bills, it appears that your entity is dealing in virtual currency and is therefore not, at this time, engaged as an MSB in Canada as per the PCMLTFA and its associated Regulations.”

Which means we can continue to operate the way we are setup. I’m so happy!!
