Regulated Crypto

Investing in crypto assets is not for the risk-averse. Fortunately, the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has authorized a half dozen platforms for those seeking to invest in crypto assets on exchanges with some regulatory oversight. In 2021, the following were registered with the OSC: WealthSimple Trade, Coinberry, Netcoins, Coinsmart, Fidelity, and Bitbuy. These may not be the best platforms for investing in crypto, but at least they have taken the steps (often over a number of years) to obtain registration with the OSC.
