瑞士政府表示将加快数字资产管理立法进程

作为七国集合体的首领,瑞士政府近日借瑞士联邦委员会发布了该国未来关于fintech发展计划的关键步骤。 这份7月5日批准的新规定将于8月份生效。瑞士政府表示,将“极速”推进数字资产的合法化进程。

这次推出的举措之一就是监管“沙箱”。瑞士政府希望借此为初创公司创造一个更加宽松的环境。联邦委员会表示,单次入账不到100万瑞士法郎(约合100万美元)的公司将无需许可授权。不过该委员会也表示,这些公司的存款人并不会受到瑞士存款保护规定的限制。

尽管瑞士政府表示希望迅速采取“法定资格”的措施,但该国政府究竟会如何管理数字资产,目前我们尚不清楚。对于这一问题,瑞士联邦委员会在该份声明中表示:

“联邦委员会将继续密切关注数字化和融资技术领域的进一步发展,并审议进一步的监管措施,相应的工作,即澄清虚拟货币的法定资格,已经被接管并且将被迅速被研究。”

该过程的结果可能对在该国工作的外汇创业公司以及一些与数字资产有联系的业务有影响,其中包括瑞士铁路服务公司SBB,该银行在去年秋季通过其售票亭开始销售比特币。

瑞士已经成为与科技合作的初创公司的枢纽,其一些市政机构已经将区块链集成到其业务中。上周,瑞士楚格市宣布正在推出数字身份认证服务,从9月开始,将使用由以太坊开发社区ConsenSys和瑞士创业公司ti&m开发的技术。

 

Switzerland's government said today that it is "swiftly" moving toward a legal designation of digital currencies.

In a statement, the Swiss Federal Council – a body of seven that collectively serve as Switzerland's head of state – revealed the first major steps of its plans to regulate fintech development in the country. CoinDesk reported in February that the government was moving to put a legal framework for fintech in place. The new rules, approved on July 5, go into effect in August.

Among the initiatives launched today is a regulatory "sandbox" aimed at creating a more accommodative environment for startups. Firms that accept fewer than 1 million Swiss francs (roughly $1m USD) "will be exempt from authorization" the Federal Council said. The group clarified that depositors with these firms would not be covered under the country's deposit protection rules.

What remains unclear is precisely how the country will regulate digital currencies, though the government indicated that it wants to move quickly to put a "legal qualification" in place, stating:

"The Federal Council will continue to closely follow further developments in the areas of digitalisation and fintech, and examine further regulatory measures. The corresponding work, i.e. on clarifying the legal qualification of virtual currencies, has been taken over and is to be swiftly pursued."

The outcome of the process could have implications for both exchange startups working in the country as well some of the businesses that work with digital currencies, including Swiss rail service SBB, which began selling bitcoin through its ticket kiosks last fall.

Switzerland has emerged as a hub for startups working with the tech, and some of its municipal bodies have moved to integrate blockchain into their operations. Last week, the city of Zug revealed that it is launching a digital identity service that, beginning in September, will use technology developed by the ethereum development community ConsenSys and Swiss startup ti&m.
