A good image, reliability and trust are important prerequisites for a professional and successful Bitcoin sector. The Dutch Association of Bitcoin Companies (known in the Netherlands as ‘Verenigde Bitcoinbedrijven Nederland’) therefore attaches great importance to maintaining and strengthening the reputation and integrity of its affiliated companies. The goal of the Dutch Association of Bitcoin Companies is to assure the quality of the affiliated Bitcoin companies in the Netherlands by promoting self-regulation and preventing and fighting Bitcoin-related fraud. The association has been active since 2014 and offers authorities and institutions a point of contact. We have close contact with Team High Tech Crime of the National Police Corps, the Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch Payment Association.
