马来西亚:年底前出台加密货币政策,不会禁止比特币

有不少央行反对加密货币及其代表的一切。而与此同时,这些机构却想要在未来打造自己的数字货币。

无论如何,对加密货币进行监管并不容易。毕竟没有人能够监管一种不存在领导者或中央机构的事物。

比特币和竞争币为全世界的监管部门带来了不少的麻烦。尤其是现如今,比特币价格不断上涨,部分国家希望彻底终止加密货币的运作。他们可以做的就只有监管中心化的交易所以及其他服务供应商。

马来西亚央行昨日已经表明态度。这一机构计划在今年年底之前制定加密货币监管规则,尤其是与反洗钱和反恐融资有关的方面。时间似乎很紧迫,不过他们制定相关规则应该已经有一段时间了。为一个国家的比特币活动设定规则总是会带来一些有趣的结果。

的确,加密货币已经引起了不少人的关注。除了消费者和爱好者之外,各国央行也早已开始关注加密货币。鉴于比特币对传统银行业构成的风险,监管是唯一的选择。

不幸的是,对于金融领域来说,他们无法监管比特币本身。中心化的服务供应商可能会不断变化,但比特币还是会继续存在。

目前没有人知道马来西亚央行会部署什么计划。不过很明显的是,该国公司需要遵守新的AML(反洗钱)规定。在这类规则中,比特币可能被视为货币,这将是一个有趣的进展。

马来西亚央行似乎没有禁止比特币活动的意思。只不过相关的规则会变得更加严格,但要想猜测具体的规则现在还太早了。

Several dozen central banks oppose cryptocurrencies and everything they stand for. At the same time, these same institutions want to create their own digital currency in the future. Bank Negara Malaysia is looking at ways to regulate cryptocurrency sooner rather than later. According to our sources, the bank will have something in place by the end of 2017. No one knows for sure how this will play out, though.

Regulation of cryptocurrency is not as easy to define by any means. After all, one cannot regulate something which has no leader or central body. Bitcoin and altcoins have caused many headaches for regulators all over the world. Especially now that the prices are increasing, some countries want to put an end to cryptocurrency once and for all. The only way they can do so is by regulating centralized exchanges and other service providers.

Bank Negara Malaysia Won’t ban Bitcoin

How things will play out in Malaysia, remains to be seen. Bank Negara Malaysia made their intentions clear yesterday evening. The institution plans to create cryptocurrency regulations before the end of 2017. That appears to be a rather brief timeline. However, it is possible they have been working on such rules for quite some time now. Defining a guideline for Bitcoin activity in the country will always have some interesting consequences.

It is true cryptocurrencies have attracted a lot of attention. Not just from consumers and enthusiasts, but also from central banks. Given the threat Bitcoin poses to traditional banking, regulation is the only option. Unfortunately for the financial sector, they can never regulate Bitcoin itself. Centralized service providers come and go, but Bitcoin itself isn’t going anywhere. This effectively nullifies any attempt to regulate this industry in the first place.

For now, it is unclear what Bank Negara Malaysia has planned. It is evident some new AML guidelines will be created for local companies. Those rules effectively validate Bitcoin as a currency, though, which would an interesting development. It does not appear Bank Negara Malaysia wants to ban Bitcoin activity whatsoever. The rules may become a lot stricter, but it is too early to speculate on what may be. The bigger question is whether or not these guidelines will be in place before the year is over. That remains a very ambitious timeline, to say the least.
