欧洲央行加大数字货币管控力度

近日欧洲央行表示,各成员机构应当加强对虚拟货币交易和存管服务的管控力度。

此举也说明,欧盟已经将数字货币活动纳入到反洗钱监管范围之内。与此同时,欧洲央行还针对比特币等数字货币及其底层技术展开了独立调查。

这份声明于本周早些时候发布,文件认为大规模使用数字货币可能会对中央银行的货币供需管控造成影响,从而波及货币价格稳定性。

其实,这已经不是欧洲央行第一次对数字货币的影响发表意见了。就在去年,该机构就曾表示数字货币仍然存在不稳定性,可能会对未来货币政策的制定产生影响。

欧洲央行表示:"尽管数字货币系统单位不以欧元计算,但是未来这种新型货币的确会对欧元区的货币政策、价格稳定、金融稳定和支付系统的平稳运行带来不小的影响。"

The European Central Bank (ECB) has urged its members to impose tighter controls on the activities of companies that exchange virtual currencies or custody them for their clients.

The comments come as the European Union moves toward extending the economic bloc's anti-money laundering statutes to cover digital currency activities. At the same time, the ECB has been conducting its own investigations of both digital currencies like bitcoin as well as its underlying technology.

Perhaps most notable in the ECB’s legal opinion, published earlier this week, is its assertion that the broader adoption of digital currencies "could in principle affect the central banks’ control over the supply of money" and impact its role in seeking price stability.

The opinion paper isn't the first instance in which the ECB has sought to question the impact of digital currencies. Last year, the central bank described them as "inherently unstable", while at the same time making the argument that the technology could have an impact on future monetary policymaking.

"Although [virtual currency system] units are not denominated in euro, they do have the potential to have an impact on monetary policy and price stability, financial stability and the smooth operation of payment systems in the euro area," the ECB said at the time.
