There seems to be some confusion about our recent announcement of a partnership with Aqoba allowing us to hold Euro balances legally. There has been an overwhelming response to this development, unfortunately some of the information quoted by journalists is factually incorrect.


This shall serve as a clarification.


In short, Paymium is neither a bank, nor a PSP. And it doesn't need to be.


Paymium, the company behind Bitcoin-Central has partnered with Aqoba, which is a registered PSP. The Crédit Mutuel Arkéa bank (not to be confused with the Crédit Mutuel bank) is the bank that Aqoba is associated with to provide the financial infrastructure a PSP needs.

This allows Aqoba to keep funds on behalf of third-parties in payment accounts ("comptes de paiement") which are different from bank accounts ("comptes de dépôt"). The difference between these is that funds deposited on a payment account may not be used for investments or loaned out. Additionnaly, these accounts have no overdraft capabilities.

These accounts will soon get their own IBAN number, be able to be associated with a debit card, but remain distinct from what is legally referred to as a "bank account".


In short :

Crédit Mutuel Arkéa is the bank that is used by Aqoba for its financial infrastructure needs,
Aqoba is a registered PSP,
Paymium works with Aqoba in order to operate as an intermediary when individuals and corporations wish to engage in the exchange of Bitcoins,
The "Garantie des dépôts" mechanism (which resembles the FDIC) covers our clients against a collapse of the Crédit Mutuel Arkéa bank.
Funds deposited with us will still remain clearly separated from Paymium's funds.


It is still a big development for a Bitcoin exchange to be able to operate legally within the European regulatory framework. Bitcoin-Central is leading the way in this respect. But we're neither a bank, nor a PSP. And we intend to keep it that way.
