Since its founding in 2017, Zero Hash has employed the highest standard of compliance, securing Money Transmitter Licenses to operate across 51 U.S jurisdictions, two BitLicenses from the New York Department of Financial Services, Austrac registration in Australia and as a Financial Services Provider in New Zealand. Global innovators including Moonpay, Curve, Wirex, and Nium trust Zero Hash because of our stability, regulatory strength, and high standards.

Araba’s extensive experience will help us maintain Zero Hash’s best-in-class compliance approach as we accelerate our European expansion.”

Araba Eshun, UK Head of Compliance of Zero Hash said, “Zero Hash stood out to me due to its focus on doing things right, rather than taking shortcuts when it comes to compliance.
