As CryptoUK – Britain’s first self-regulatory trade association for the cryptocurrency industry – expands, this post sets out further details on our membership structure.
Full membership is open to companies in the cryptocurrency sector which meet our market definition. This includes:
- Exchanges: A marketplace where traders can buy and sell cryptocurrencies using either fiat or alternative cryptocurrencies.

A separate category, Associate membership, is open to individuals, companies and organisations with experience or interest in cryptocurrencies, but who do not operate businesses that fall within the market – they may want to support the industry, or operate in a sector which complements the aims of CryptoUK.
