美国华盛顿正式监管比特币交易所

早在今年4月份,华盛顿政客达成一致意见并确定了针对比特币交易所的监管规定。这些监管指导方针和规定如今正式生效。立法者在参议院和众议院推动通过了Senate Bill 5031,并且已经获得华盛顿州州长Jay Inslee的正式签署。

针对比特币交易所的法案要求

这些规定声明任何在华盛顿州经营加密货币交易所的人都必须申请该州颁发的许可证。他们必须与一家第三方审计机构合作,披露自己的系统并接受监督。

这个法案表示,”对于代表其他人存储虚拟货币的业务模式,企业申请资质必须提供一份有关所有电子信息和数据系统的第三方安全审计。”

立法者还创建了一条规定,要求交易所必须具备一种与他们业务相关联的保证金。这个保证金大小与其前一年进行的交易额相关。

来自著名交易所的应对

由于这项新的法律的生效,大型交易所P网(Poloniex)和B网(Bitfinex)表示他们将停止在该州开展业务。新规定似乎不符合他们的目标以及服务客户的能力。然而,Gemini交易所已经获得了该州的批准,并且开始允许该州的客户在该交易所买卖比特币。而P网写到:

经过仔细考虑华盛顿州金融管理委员会对金融服务监管规定的解读,Poloniex将暂停华盛顿帐户创建,直至另行通知。对于现有华盛顿客户,你将收到我们发送的一封邮件,说明如何关闭自己的账户。

Back in April, Washington politicians finished piecing together and finalizing the regulations for bitcoin exchanges. Those guidelines and rules are now active. Lawmakers pushed Senate Bill 5031 through the House and Senate, and it was signed into existence by governor Jay Inslee.

Bill Requirements for Bitcoin Exchanges

The rules declare that anyone who operates a cryptocurrency exchange within Washington must apply for a license from the State. They must also contract with a third party auditor and have their system disrobed and inspected.

Washington's Bitcoin Exchange Rules Become Active

The bill states, “For business models that store virtual currency on behalf of others, the applicant must provide a third-party security audit of all electronic information and data systems acceptable to the director.”

Lawmakers also created a rule that says exchanges have to have a bond associated with their business. The figure of the bond has to be tied to the amount of currency transacted in the previous year.

Reaction From Popular Exchanges

As a result of the new law, major exchanges Poloniex and Bitfinex said they would cease conducting business in the state. The new regulations do not seem to jibe with their goals and ability to serve the customer. However, the exchange Gemini has already been granted approval and a license to begin allowing Washington-based clients to buy and sell on their exchange. The Poloniex website read:

After careful consideration of the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions’ interpretation of its financial services regulations, Poloniex will suspend Washington account creation until further notice. For existing Washington customers, you will receive an email with instructions on how to wind down your account.
