eToro is based in Israel but operates globally. They’re already regulated in countries like the UK, Cyprus, and the US. They recently got approval to operate in the UAE too. However, the Philippines warned against eToro for offering services without local authorization, which eToro denied.

Getting a license in Singapore is seen as a smart move since other crypto exchanges are doing it too. Singapore is a good market, with IG Group making a lot of money there.
