花旗银行推出自己的加密货币:Citicoin

花旗银行宣布近期在为电子货币运行一个测试平台,并为以后的CitiCoin做准备。

上周二,有报道指出,花旗将采用比特币和区块链技术创造自己的电子货币。由于几乎每个人都能在几秒内用一点编程知识就能生成加密货币,所以这项技术并不困难。但事实上花旗银行正在需找非常有前景的技术,以证明电子货币最终会引起金融集团的兴趣。

Citicoin-令人感兴趣的银行加密货币

三个月以前,花旗集团就曾表明他们对区块链技术很感兴趣,虽然当时他们想的还是比特币,这表明金融机构对比特币和区块链技术的兴趣越来越大。

虽然花旗集团本次进军虚拟货币市场看上去非常有希望,但仍应注意银行想要的仅仅是控制。银行并不畏惧加密货币,他们只是紧张而已。一旦其中的一些系统开始上线,监管部门就会意识到不管是狗狗币、比特币还是花旗币,都需要监管。

花旗集团创新实验室的Kenneth Moore表示:"现在我们正在花旗内部使用三种内部数据区块链来对虚拟货币进行测试。"这些数据区块链目前还只能在实验室内部使用,也就是说还没有真正的资金通过这个系统。" 他还将Citicoin描述为"一种与比特币相同的虚拟货币,目前仍在测试之中"。他透露:"在个测试过程中,我们的目的是确保自己获得技术上的领先优势,并且让花旗集团可以用这个虚拟货币产品获得大量的机会。"

花旗银行非常看好这项新金融科技的潜在收益。他们表示今后电子钱币的使用已是必然趋势。

今年,很多金融机构越来越看好区块链技术和比特币协议,纷纷为促进其发展提供支持。此外,花旗集团认为尽管电子货币已成必然趋势,但比特币还前途未卜。

Citibank has revealed that it was running a test platform for digital currencies to later develop its own solution, CitiCoin.

This past Tuesday, the International Business Times published an article where it revealed the Citibank group intentions. The state that Citigroup has built its own digital currency based on bitcoin and the Blockchain. This, in itself, isn't very difficult, since anyone can create a cryptocurrency in a few seconds with a bit of programming knowledge. But the fact that Citibank is looking into the technology is very promising and a proof that that digital currencies finally aroused the interest of financial groups.

Citicoin - The Definite Interest in Cryptocurrency for Banking

Three months ago, Citigroup had a presentation in which the group tried to remove any doubt that banks are definitely interested in the Blockchain technology and what they think bitcoin. This reveals the increasing interest that financial institutions been having for Bitcoin and the Blockchain technology.

While it's noble for banks to attempt these systems, it's important to note that banks only want control. Banks are not afraid of cryptocurrencies, they're just nervous. Once one of these systems begins coming online regulators will be forced to take notice and this means everything, from dogecoins to bitcoins to Citicoins, will eventually become regulated.

Kenneth Moore, head of Citigroup Innovations Lab stated:

"We have up and running three separate systems within Citi now that actually deploy blockchain distributed ledger technologies. They are all within the labs just now so there is no real money passing through these systems yet; they are at a pre-production level to be clear. We also have an equivalent to bitcoin up and running, again within the labs, so we can mine what we call a 'Citicoin', for want of a better term. We are at the leading edge of this technology and that we can exploit the opportunities within it."

Citibank is positive about the potential benefits to be taken from this new financial technology. The company stated the adoption of Digital Money is inevitable.

This year all along, we have been seeing a lot of investment and an increased attention being driven by financial Institutions to support further investigations on the Blockchain Technology and the Bitcoin Protocol. However, While the Citi group believes that the use of Digital Currency is certain, it has an unclear assumption about the future of Bitcoin.
