比特币入主外汇交易市场 获塞浦路斯监管层肯定

近日,外汇经纪服务提供商百利汇宣布,该平台将在塞浦路斯证券交易委员会监管下,与BitPay合作,接受比特币存款和融资。

百利汇在接受比特币注资之前,接受注资的支付方式有银行电汇、Cash-U(主要用于支付在线游戏、VoIP技术、电信、IT服务和外汇交易)、ClickandBuy(在线支付服务提供商,允许通过互联网的付款和资金转移)、信用卡/借记卡和Skrill(电子支付、存储和货币转账系统)。

百利汇在其网站上的一片博文中写道,“在明确了塞浦路斯相关的欧洲管辖权规定之后,我们扩展了相应的业务范围——同时也增加了交易方式的种类——这样做是为了在安全有序的交易环境中提供更为先进的服务,”此篇博文还提到,“百利汇授权第三方支付处理商BitPay管理各种交易,雇佣有经验的人员为耐特乐电子钱包、Adyen、微软等管理大容量的比特币交易。”

在所有受到监管的外汇交易服务提供商中,百利汇是首批引入比特币注资的经纪商之一。

全球外汇市场是世界上最大的没有受到监管的市场,日交易额超过5.3万亿美元。随着一大批经纪商为普通大众在市场投资和督查提供了越来越多的便利,在过去的十年中,外汇交易变得越来越受到大众欢迎。

然而,在许多国家,交易外币都是违法的,因为这涉及到高杠杆比率交易,并且市场价格极度不稳定,这就导致在许多国家的政府看来,交易外币是投机行为。在美国,外汇交易受到严格监管,为了获得来自美国的客户,美国之外的外汇交易商必须遵守美国证券交易委员会的规章制度。

虽然百利汇受到塞浦路斯证券交易委员会的监管,但是它却不接受来自美国的客户。然而,百利汇并没有阐明接受比特币是否会造成漏洞,因为来自美国的客户将能够使用比特币存款,而追溯比特币交易的起源基本上是不可能的。

Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) regulated foreign exchange brokerage service provider FXPRIMUS has announced that it would be accepting Bitcoin deposits and funding in partnership with BitPay.

Before accepting Bitcoin, FXPRIMUS previously accepted funding via bank wire transfer, Cash-U, ClickandBuy, credit/debit cards, and, Skrill among other payment methods.

“Since obtaining our European jurisdictional regulation with CySEC, we have extended the scope of our operations – as well as our range of tradable instruments – in order to offer a cutting-edge service within the context of a safe and ethical trading environment,” said FXPRIMUS in a blog post on its website. “The company [FXPRIMUS] has engaged third-party payments processor BitPay to manage the transactions, and who are experienced in managing high-volume Bitcoin transactions for Neteller, Adyen, Microsoft, and others,” added the post.

Among the regulated Forex brokerage service providers, FXPRIMUS would be one of the first brokers to introduce funding via Bitcoin.

Commenting on the initiative, CEO & Director of FXPRIMUS, Terry Thompson commented that “with security at the forefront of our operations here at FXPRIMUS, we are now delighted to announce the appointment of BitPay – an experienced and established provider of the virtual currencies.”

Global Forex market is the largest unregulated market in the world with a daily transaction volume of over US$ 5.3 trillion. Forex trading has become very popular in the last decade as a number of brokers made it easier for regular folks to invest and speculate in the market.

However, in a lot of countries, trading foreign currency is against the law, as it involves trading with high leverage and market prices are extremely volatile, making it appears “speculation” in the eyes of the government of several countries. In the United States, foreign exchange trading is highly regulated and foreign brokers must comply with SEC regulations in order to accept clients from the US.

Although FXPRIMUS is regulated by the CySEC, it also does not accept clients from the United States. However, the company did not clarify if accepting Bitcoin would create a loophole where clients from US would be able to deposit funds via Bitcoin as it is virtually impossible to trace the origins of the Bitcoin transaction.
